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.

IB PYP Approaches to Learning Skills Task Cards Bundle

IB PYP Approaches to Learning Skills Task Cards Bundle

All of the Approaches to Learning skills ( formerly transdisciplinary skills) combined with reading, speaking, listening and drama! These printable task cards are a terrific way to actively practise the growth mindset directly within the Thinking, Research, Communication, Social and Self Management skills developed within the IB PYP’S Approaches to Learning. The task cards can be used in a variety of ways that encourage the children to reflect and think positively of themselves and others in various scenarios that are easily relatable to them. They are asked to reflect on situations that require analysing, synthesising, categorising and evaluating, present doubt, possible antagonism, confidence issues and other difficulties. As you help the children with these skills in a safe, familiar environment, it will greatly benefit them throughout school and particularly as they approach the IB PYP Exhibition. A great review activity! Differentiated for 3rd-5th grade. UK and USA spelling. Suggestions: Whole class - sitting in circle, each child will have a card to read aloud and then share their opinion. These can be discussed as you go around the circle. Teacher led – read aloud a card to a small group and have them interact with each other to solve the problem or scenario. Small groups- Place a pile of cards face down in the middle of the group. Each person will take a turn to read a card, act out or offer their opinion and then those can be discussed within the group. Independent work - Each child can work with a few cards and write or draw how they would solve the social problems presented on the task cards. You will find over 100 task cards ready to print and go. Each skill is a separate PDF within a zip file. You can purchase them separately but with this bundle you save! And you get the entire set of classroom posters explaining the skills! You can find many more tools for implementing the IB PYP within my store and on my blog. There are separate sets for big kids and also for younger kids. Enjoy! Susan Powers PYPteachingtools.com
