AQA Drama GCSE Component one revision booklet- New Specification

This revision booklet is for the new GCSE specification and has a focus on Nought’s and Crosses, however it could be easily adapted. It focuses on the three sections of the exam. Within each section there is revision sections and tasks to do. I have used the specification to create the booklet. I hope that it is helpful. Any comments to improve please let me know.

Drama Scene Planning Sheet

Drama Scene Planning Sheet

I use this sheet at the beginning of scene work to remind students what their scene should look like and what to include. Although I’ve mainly used this resource with Year 6-8 students, I’m sure it could be used for younger and older with some adapting. Feel free to use, adapt, change whatever suits your needs. I hope it helps!
