As they look at dance on a rotation this is just a flavour of contemporary dance. Included is a muscle work sheet which links with PE. 6 lessons - 6 hours. Each lesson has a link to either video or worksheet. Lesson 5 is an assessment as it coordinates with my school. Lesson 6 is usually something a little fun as it is always the last week of term.
Introduction to Drama - 12 lessons building up basic skills

Introduction to Drama - 12 lessons building up basic skills

(0)
This resource is used for year 7’s who are of mixed ability and have never studied drama before. The plus points to this unit is that is offers structure and routine for students so they know the expectations. Timings are on there but these can be changed to suit your lessons. Differentiation is not included as this is personal to your class so when I distribute this to my teachers they then go through and differentiate accordingly. This resource is to build up a basic skill base for students while interacting with other students they might not know yet. Tried and tested this has proved to offer the structure students need at this age and gets them thinking about different skills they can use without being told to use them. The first half of the lessons examples are given to them and then towards the end that guidance is taking away as it shouldn’t be needed anymore. Many thanks for viewing this resource.
