Jane Eyre Theatre Evaluation Booklet

(2)
A comprehensive revision booklet for The National Theatre’s performance of Jane Eyre, available to watch for free for schools on the National Theatre Collection. As live theatre is more difficult to watch this year I created this booklet to be used for home and school learning. This booklet prepares students for the evaluation section on GCSE Drama exams for all exam boards. It covers context, set, lighting, sound, costume, characterisation and directors decisions. Each section has a key words test, info about the play and questions for students to answer. It finishes with advice on structure of the essay and practice questions.

This power point was created for my year 11 Drama GCSE students after they completed the 2019 OCR Drama exam as a mock. It goes through each question of the 2019 paper, discussing mistakes made by the students, how they should have answered the questions and giving model answers. The paper was answered using Blood Brothers as a set text and for Section B the model answer is based on the play ‘The Woman in Black’ but will be helpful for any student of OCR Drama who wants help on how to structure answers and what the examiners are looking for. You may want to adapt this power point for your students as some of it is quite personal to my class.
