Theatre Practitioner Workbook

Theatre Practitioner Workbook

This workbooklet covers STANISLAVSKI-BRECHT-ARTAUD. The booklet is split into three different sections (one for each practitioner). There are a series of questions about the style and beliefs of each practitioner for the students to answer. It can be used as a standalone lesson, an activity in lessons or as a plenary. I have also used the booklet to provide research based homework. It could also be used as a revision tool. Once completed, I encourage students to refer to the booklet during the devising process to ensure they are using a range of techniques and strategies in their work.

Showing Setting - KS3 Revision

Showing Setting - KS3 Revision

A PowerPoint that can either be used as a teacher-led presentation or as an independent activity for students to complete. There are a some definitions to match to terminology. Students then explain how they would use these acting skills to show a range of settings in performance. There are challenge tasks to complete about using dialogue to decide where the performance should be set. I have used this resource with my KS3 classes (all abilities) and it have worked well in getting students becoming more confident in explaining HOW they would use their acting skills. This has helped with their evaluation work.
