n the modern world many children suffer from concentration problems and have difficulties paying attention in the classroom. Through the project we want to gain knowledge of new methods in drama techniques in order to improve teachers’ competence for working with children who suffer from concentration problems and need additional support both in school and in kindergarten.
Laulasmaa School is the biggest in Keila municipality and the expectations from parents for the school and its teachers are high. Some children in our school have moved here from other countries and have different cultural and linguistic background. Using the best practices in Europe we will raise the quality of teaching in our school.
