Drama Lessons for Cover or Supply Teachers 2Quick View

Drama Lessons for Cover or Supply Teachers 2

This is a collection of 7 individual lessons that could be taught by a non-specialist. There are notes to guide the teacher, as well as the lesson plans and resources. They are designed for occasions when the Drama teacher has to be absent and somebody else is filling in. There are also 4 short scripts that are not finished. They can be read and then groups act out what happens next, or they can write the rest of the script. I have included some advice about script writing lessons. The lessons have all been used used with 11 to 14 year old students many times. The first lesson revolves around a diary entry that can be printed out or projected. The second lesson uses a picture as the stimulus material. Magic powers is the topic of the third lesson. The fourth lesson has a planning sheet and can easily be spread over two lessons. ‘Conversations from Starting Lines’ can be done with the students seated for the whole time if necessary. (Some cover teachers refuse to let the students move around.) ‘Role Reversals’ has the students consider situations from two sides. The lesson titled ‘Mime’ is about silent acting. Many times I have been forced to conduct Drama lessons in ordinary classrooms with other lessons going on next door. Silent acting is better than no acting, and this lesson has lots of ideas for it. All the lesson plans can be edited, so the teacher setting the work can change it.

Cover Teacher / Supply Teacher Lesson Plan

A simple to follow, fill in the blank lesson plan template for cover staff and supply teachers. This document can be applied to all subjects. This document is available in the following formats: Microsoft Word Microsoft Powerpoint PDF The document is divided into various ‘bubbles’, each coloured to attract your attention to keep you on track with your lesson. Areas within this document include: PAGE 1: ‘Teacher name / subject / group / focus / lesson duration’. ‘Learning objectives’ ‘Please read aloud to class’ bubble. ‘Items needed for this lesson’ bubble. ‘Pay particular attention to:’ bubble. ‘Note for cover staff’. ‘Through the door activity’. ‘Main body activity’ bubbles’. ‘Closing activity’ bubble. PAGE 2: Class information (No. of students) Seating plan Bubble for staff feedback As a former cover supervisor and supply teacher, I found it quite frustrating when cover lesson notes either were not detailed enough, difficult to follow or simply did not exist. With this document, lesson instructions are easy to follow, staff are made aware of particular students and seating arrangements and an open dialogue between staff members about their lessons can be maintained. Cover staff can also inform the normal staff member about any particular incidents, where the class got up to, or if they had any other feedback. Within each activity bubble, simply write the activity name, duration and a brief description. Within the ‘Pay particular attention to’ section, write the names of students who can be a distraction to others or those who may need additional support. On the second page, a seating chart can be edited to show the layout of your classroom. Move the boxes which represent tables and fill them in with student information. E.g, Sam - 6 - PP - SEN. etc. Other classroom layouts have been provided on the PPT and Word documents for ease of editing. Ensure you fill in all the relevant areas of this document so that cover staff will be able to run your lesson as you would. It is recommended this document is printed ‘back to back’.

The Hunger Game: Global Distribution of Food, Food Insecurity, Food Supply, FamineQuick View

The Hunger Game: Global Distribution of Food, Food Insecurity, Food Supply, Famine

This is a one-off lesson based on a game. ‘The Hunger Game’ explores the issues of food insecurity and reasons why the world’s food supply is distributed unevenly. The game uses Skittles and requires teams of six students. Each player represents a continent and Skittles are distributed according to what percentage of the world’s food supply that continent receives. Real life events are played out and players lose or gain food supplies. Players can intervene and provide food aid to other continents. At the beginning and end of the game students each complete a worksheet which encourages reflection of the events that affected them and others, and how they felt about it. I designed this game for an observation lesson and received an ‘outstanding’. It is an original resource which was inspired by the popular Jelly Babies Population Game. I have used the game with both a low and high ability Year 8 class and also a Year 12 class. The KS3 and A-Level groups were highly engaged with the lesson and played the game independently. Differentiation was very much through team discussion, reflection outcomes and teacher questioning. I was amazed by the implications discussed by the higher ability Year 8 class – issues we hadn’t yet covered in lessons. The game requires 100 Skittles per team and plastic cups or bowls for players to keep them in. The resources provided include: Lesson plan PowerPoint Starter and plenary activity Player instructions Continent profiles Student worksheet Positive and negative chance cards It is ideal for a 60 minute lesson but could easily be extended through follow-up discussion. I managed to squeeze it into a 50 minute lesson, but revisited the worksheet the following lesson to reflect on the outcomes and key learning points.
