There is a famous American proverb, “Tell me, and I’ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand.” This seems to be true, especially in the case of school students. Learners of Stage 7 recently used drama as a tool to recall the detective mystery story ‘The Speckled Band’ which was their favourite among all the Sherlock Holmes detective mystery stories that they read. Needless to say, it was a remarkable performance by our learners. The preparation not only helped them perform the play better but also analyse the character even more. Learning through play was a joyful, meaningful, iterative, socially interactive and actively engaging experience which focused on fostering cognitive, social, emotional, creative and physical skills.
