Two lessons with tasks amounting to a final chosen, devised Drama based on Shakespeare's 7 ages of man from As you Like it.
Full lesson plan x 2 (as pdf and word) and instructional whiteboard animation video (wmv) for students. More resources coming very soon.
This has been tried and tested in year 7 lessons with 'outstanding' judgement.
Just what I was looking for. I'm an English teacher who has been thrown in with Drama for the rest of term. The whiteboard animation talks me and the kids through the activities and it combines the language of Shakespeare with physical activities even offering suggestions on which strategies to use/consider. This was helpful for me as the kids could explain the meaning of some of the strategies which prompted discussion as to the merits of each. Definitely more than 2 lessons worth here. Well worth the quid, as I told the kids and my colleagues that I spent all holiday making the whiteboard animation!
I bought you lunch for this resource (which cost more than a quid!) and I must say it is an excellent resource. The kids love and respond to the whiteboard animation video and it lasted more than 4 lessons for me. Well worth downloading. Everything is there for 4 lessons without any need for editing or adding to it.
