Drama Thought Wall Display- Thougths for MAGT and SEN to consider when performing

Drama Thought Wall Display- Thougths for MAGT and SEN to consider when performing

Drama Thought Wall resource. The resources includes 29 "thoughts" for students to consider. Designed as prompts on to go on walls for students to consider when in the lesson. These can be used as a reference point for the teacher or setting additional tasks for MAGT/SEN or just giving another dimension to the classroom. Currently in my class room I rotate the thoughts around to get students considering a range of different ideas throughout the term and think about them as part of a regular process. They help cut out all the "unprofessional" things students do when performing.
