The oracy course occurred during autumn 2011. This was a time in the province of British Columbia when the concept of 'personalised learning' had become central to the government's new idea of transformation for school-based education. Drama education is a mode of learning and an art form in which students explore relevant issues, events and relationships within fictional contexts so they might come to make meaning about their own lives and communities. Drama practitioners often work in a role alongside students, functioning as co-artists within the experience. Instructors can use their role within the drama to engage and challenge students, develop the story of the drama, as well as build tension and integrate reflective processes. The opportunity to work as co-instructors for the oracy course challenged the instructors to support students in developing the literacies to think and act beyond what is and towards what might be.
