MetadataShow full item record
This study is an attempt to explore the teachers’ views on their participation in the English Drama Performance (EDP). Employing a qualitative approach, this study was conducted by selecting three English teachers from three different types of education, who have been taking part in the EDP for a minimum of two performances. Data were collected through a one-on-one interview with three participants. The finding revealed that the teachers, at first were doubtful in participat- ing in the EDP; however, after many rehearsals, they found enjoyment. In addition to their feel- ings, the teachers expressed their likes and dislikes in participating in the EDP. They also men- tioned about the effect of their participation in the EDP towards their English skills. The study found that by participating in the EDP, the teachers could express several English language func- tions, enhance their pronunciation skill, practice communication skill, ease reading, and improve vocabulary. In addition to the effect on their English skills, their participation in the EDP contrib- utes to the way they teach English to their students.
