Active Learning Salem Witch Trials - Year 8 mixed ability group
A lesson created for an observation where teams of students race to different based around the room in a structured manor to gain information on Characters, Given Circumstances, Stage Directions, Movement and Vocal and a Script to then culminate all this information into a performance.

Included in this is a lesson plan, PP - which has the base sheets for each area. In an adaptation I used the movement and vocal grid as the task for base 4 with the voice and movement banks, these are colour coded to support AEN, base sheets, question sheets for each base an example team sheet with rules.

1-9 grading used.
