This unit of work looks at the job role of the actor in terms of what qualities are required, which other roles they work with in the industry, and the final piece of work would be the creation of a power point to educate aspiring actors. Students will also research other roles within the acting industry.
This would ideally need to be delivered in an ICT room, but could be adapted for the classroom provided case studies of job roles could be provided.
There is a unit of work that contains learning objectives, learning outcomes, homework, suggested activities as well as suggested open and closed questions. The unit of work contains six lesson plans.
There is a project pack included which involves students exploring Theatre in Education, the purpose, the similarities and differences to theatre as well as the job roles within Theatre in Education. This forms a homework project that supports the unit of work.
Some of the resources are included, but actor case studies would need to be printed for one lesson. For copyright reasons I am unable to include these.
