Megamusicals - The Hit British Musicals of the 1980s

Megamusicals - The Hit British Musicals of the 1980s

This resource is intended for KS3 Drama students. It teaches them about the rise of one of the most successful genres of theatre - the Megamusical. Students will learn about the emergence of the sub-genre during the 1980s, as producers such as Cameron Mackintosh and composers such as Andrew Lloyd Webber created iconic musicals such as Cats, Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera. These combined universally appealing stories, catchy songs, creative sets and spectacular special effects into a unique and exciting production, allowing British theatre to reach new heights of commercial success. This resource will prove useful for drama students seeking to learn more about the making of musicals and their impact with audiences all over the globe. It is especially useful for those seeking to learn about staging and set design, as it places particular emphasis on set designers like John Napier, who played a major role in making the Megamusicals stand out by giving them a distinctive visual style which could impress theatregoers throughout the world. The Megamusicals resource contains a Powerpoint, a transcript to be used by both teachers and students, a worksheet containing questions for students, and a sheet containing a unique homework assignment which will allow students to demonstrate their creativity and their understanding of musical and theatrical conventions.

Aim for Five Star Work: Student Self-Assessment Rubric Poster

Aim for Five Star Work: Student Self-Assessment Rubric Poster

Designed for use in Creative Arts (Visual Arts) , this poster encourages students to self-monitor their learning with attention to the Success Criteria and design requirements of their task, their use of media and attention to detail, their creative efforts, their completion of tasks in a timely manner and general co-operation in the class setting. It can also be a useful resource to have on hand during a three-way conference (parent-student-teacher). It is worth spending a little time 'unpacking' the rubric with your students to clarify your expectations and theirs in each area. As a teacher your understanding of 'Craftsmanship', is probably different to the students' initial understanding - usually 'colouring in between the lines'. It may not mean keeping to the 'lines' at all - without artistic innovators we would have no Picasso! However, sometimes the 'lines' (rules) are important . Enjoy those conversations with your student artists! To further encourage your students to take ownership of their learning through self and peer assessment I recommend the T.A.L.K and L.E.A.R.N process T.A.L.K and L.E.A.R.N posters and printable mnemonic bookmarks are available as a value bundle. To develop an effective and manageable formative and summative assessment strategy, with assessment FOR, AS and OF learning, the ASSESSMENT FOR LEARNING bundle provides resources for creative teachers to support their students and keep assessment records on track.
