Abstract: 
This paper reports on research-in-progress currently being undertaken under the
auspices of the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice at the National Institute of
Education (NIE), Singapore. The aim of the research project is to investigate the impact
of process drama pedagogy on the learning of oral language. In brief, the research
involved students at four schools participating in a series of ten drama lessons. The
students were pre- and post-tested to determine the impact of the drama learning on their
oral communication skills.
At this stage of the project the intervention with students has concluded and the data has
been collected. While analysis of the full data collection is still underway, initial
examination suggests that the use of drama in this context has produced significantly
enhanced test scores for the students in the trial. Recorded interviews with students,
teachers and facilitators, and facilitator journals will be analyzed to identify other
outcomes relating to correctness, responsiveness and agency.
