Despite the existence of research on drama and language teaching, a class procedure on how this discipline can be applied and how teacher candidates will be informed about this discipline is not available. Some of these studies are comprised of theoretical knowledge while some others present samples of application to be exploited in the classroom. However, what is lacking in these studies is a course design describing how drama courses can be conducted in foreign language classes. In this study, whose starting point is this necessity, a sample course procedure to be applied in ITE (Initial Teacher Education) Programs has been presented. This paper aims to draw a sketch of a Teaching Drama course by proposing one currently conducted at Mersin University ELT Department; it also aims to standardize and disseminate this procedure at ITE programs. In addition, with a syllabus proposed, it also aims to spread and specify the notion of drama in ELT programs. The feedback received from the course participants and their views as the same teacher candidates who take practicum at schools in the following year point out that the use of drama in language education is an effective technique. Furthermore, there are views that the applications harmonized with field specific methods and techniques can be used as a means for the very young learners and young learners to speed up and motivate the language learning processes. This finding shows that theoretical knowledge acquired at the faculty combined with the practice of this knowledge at schools form an effective teaching model.
