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.
