I have been an English teacher since 2008 and I continue to enjoy what I do. Approaching lessons and the curriculum with a creative eye has kept my interest in what 'must' be taught and my resources reflect this. Active, engaged students are what I am aiming for. (Positive mindset and all that!) I hope you can find something useful within this 'shop' - our job is hard enough without having to create everything from scratch! Kate

This is a lesson adapted to powerpoint from an existing SoW with a few ideas of my own thrown in for good measure. I'm not a drama specialist but I really enjoyed teaching this topic and the powerpoints work really well alongside level descriptors and the areas of: ?Making and exploring ?Performing and presenting ?Responding and evaluating

This resource asks students to explore Stanislavski's concepts of units and motivation. This was initially a 30 minute interview lesson but it could easily be adapted. It includes teaching and learning concepts like coaching triangles to develop a performers response immediately and encourage students to give clearer and more specific feedback. The initial task is based on one of Kagan's Co-operative Learning strategies - Jigsaw. The Jigsaw stations are slides 13-17. All slides with tasks have count down timers embedded. I'm just moving more into the world of Drama this year after 8 years English teaching; all feedback is welcomed!

Star Wars Reading Analysis PEE

This is a reading analysis lesson building upon the Heroes and Villains powerpoint lesson (also available in my shop). It uses the PEE structure and a script/ transcript of the famous 'I am your father' scene from Empire Strikes Back. This lesson gets students to engage with play scripts, develop speaking and listening skills, work co-operatively and leads up to an assessment. NB The script is not my work (if only - I'd be rich!) but it is available to download online.
