Drama GCSE Key-Word Revision Sessions [Crosswords & Games] (Exam Preparation)

This revision session is designed for GCSE Drama teachers who want to lead revision sessions focussed on key-words and literacy.

The download features:
-A full PowerPoint to guide the session (with a starter, objectives, main task, a game, & AfL)
-A colourful and fun double-sided worksheet (with 2 x key-word crosswords)
-A teacher’s answersheet

It serves as a fun and relaxed way for students to revise key-words and allows you to gauge their knowledge of key-words based on how fast they can complete the task.

Ideally, you should have a time where students work alone at first (so that you can gauge their level of knowledge) and then co-operatively (in pairs) so that they can learn.

All activities in this session are focussed on key-words so if you feel your students need to revise key-words this is the perfect resource for them!
