This research employed action research, and the target is the groups of elementary school students in lower grades who participate in the "Where the Toys Go" exhibition in the Playhouse from April to June in 2022.
The course of this study will be implemented in the nine first grade groups, and each of the course will be conducted in a single session. A total of 9 sessions will be completed. The curriculum design of this study is based on the procedures of creative drama. The primary creative drama activities are also adopted in the curriculum design. Besides, the teaching is supplemented by conventions. The measurement of learning impact refers to the Generic Learning Outcomes model for the design of the learning sheet.
The researcher of this study is the teacher, and a co-teachers is the complete observer. Through collecting teaching reflection notes, observation records, after-class discussion records, learning sheets before and after the course, and student interviews, the researcher gathered the tripartite data of teachers, observers, and students for triangulation analysis.
