Holocaust Memorial Day Drama Lesson KS3 & 4

Holocaust Memorial Day Drama Lesson KS3 & 4

This lesson for Key Stage 3 & 4 age students uses drama techniques to explore the life stories of a Holocaust survivor, and a survivor of the Genocide in Rwanda. This lesson provides drama activities pioneered by Bertolt Brecht, which help the audience to learn facts about what happened, and protect performers from trying to re-enact traumatic situations. This lesson provides a starting point to create a performance piece for Holocaust Memorial Day.

Famous British Actors Wordsearch Drama Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Famous British Actors Wordsearch Drama Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'British Actors'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

UAL Level 3 Diploma Shakespeare Short Assignment Brief

UAL Level 3 Diploma Shakespeare Short Assignment Brief

I have used this assignment brief for UAL Level 3 Diploma Performing and Production Arts Unit: Developing Performance and Production Skills. It involves the staging of an abridged version of Romeo and Juliet, but can be adapted to accommodate any Shakespeare play, or indeed any play for this qualification. It can also be adapted for BTEC delivery.
