YEAR 9 DRAMA SCHEME - Anne Frank's Diary

(0)
The first of two detailed schemes of work based on the study of Anne Frank's diary. Here, 6 lessons cover; Objectives, Starters, Introductions, Drama Development, Plenaries and homework. Indented to be taught from the scheme; no additional lesson plans are necessary. All resources are included (SCHEME 2 covers the next 6 lessons - also available on TES). The scheme allows for the study of sections of text from Anne Frank’s diary. Students should develop empathy for Anne’s situation at the same time building a knowledge of World War II and the horrific acts of genocide. Hopefully this scheme will address the issue of prejudice in a way which will allow all students to question their own behaviour and opinions in an attempt to minimise acts of prejudice in your classroom and your school. Drama Learning Outcomes: The students will concentrate on using space constraints and Spectra of Theatre (Light/Dark, Noise/Silence) in order to create dramatic atmosphere and represent the element of fear.
