Complete Introduction to Drama Scheme of Work.

This is a fully loaded 15 lesson scheme of work that is an enjoyable, engaging, active and fun introduction to drama. Ideal for use at the start of a new academic year or for any class that are unfamiliar with the basic conventions of drama. Not only will students enjoy a range of practical activities, they will also learn a whole host of important drama skills which will make them strong, well rounded performers.

Lessons in the scheme run as follows:
Lessons 1-3 - Drama games - 20 games, fully explained, that are guaranteed winners for any group
Lesson 4 - Voice work
Lesson 5 - Freeze Frames
Lesson 6 - Thought Tracking
Lesson 7 - Mime
Lesson 8 - Levels and Proxemics
Lesson 9 - Soundscaping / Off Stage Drama
Lesson 10 - Mime
Lesson 11 and 12 - Improvisation and Developing a Concept
Lessons 13 and 14 - Rehearsal - highly structured lesson with guidance on good rehearsing. Choice of 3 assessment tasks for teacher to choose from
Lesson 15 - Performance and Evaluation (evaluation can take the form of an extended activity to be completed in a separate lesson)

The scheme now includes a series of knowledge organisers that you can use with your students to revisit key concepts!

Ideal for less experienced teachers and non-subject specialists as well as more experienced drama teachers. Engaging and fun PowerPoints with very little adaptation required. Tasks are accompanied by supporting notes where necessary so that all tasks are easy to follow and teach.

A complete and fully resourced scheme of work designed to engage students from lesson 1 and make Drama the subject they all talk about! Ideal for building strong, well rounded and skilled performers. Would suit key stage 2, 3 and 4. For some reason the preview feature doesn’t seem to work properly on some of the resources but they all download fine and are formatted correctly when downloaded.
