Drama Performance Evaluation Reflection Activity Sheet

Drama Performance Evaluation Reflection Activity Sheet

So this is useful when you have small group performances and you want the rest of the class who are watching to reflect upon what they have watched. It gives them an opportunity (without too much depth) to make some observations and then reflect with a more open question. Ticks the AFL boxes and use of Drama vocabulary.

Jose Limon Powerpoint

Jose Limon Powerpoint

This is a powerpoint presentation that explains the main, basic points and history of Jose Limon. For me, it was the springboard for student research and further developmental practical work.

Different Forms of Stage / Performance Space

Different Forms of Stage / Performance Space

This is a really basic, but quite helpful information source that shows a diagram and a picture of what different stage spaces are and how they are used. End On, In The Round, Thrust, Traverse and Promenade are all shown. A really good exercise to go with this is to get small groups to demonstrate when you call out different stage types, and they have to arrange their chairs and themselves in a few seconds.

Dance Scheme of Work - Guernica

Dance Scheme of Work - Guernica

This is a scheme of work for Dance. It uses Picasso’s iconic art piece “Guernica” as it’s stimulus. I have previously used it for Year 8 Dance, but I suppose you could use it for Year 9, or an early piece for Year 10. This resource includes lesson plans, and worksheets that can be put together for a booklet. Obviously you can put your own schools logo on the front page, etc.

KS3 Dance Pirates Scheme of Work

KS3 Dance Pirates Scheme of Work

This is a dance scheme of work using the theme of Pirates. It uses the themes of “water”, explores the shape of the ship, the characters on board, pirate activities, sword fighting and performance skills. There are detailed lesson plans with worksheets for reflective practice. There are suggestions for music and diagrams to help with staging whole class sections. When I did this, we were 1:1 Chromebooks, so students created an online blog to write a diary of their creative progress, but with could be done with a physical booklet instead. This scheme of work could possibly be used for Years 5, 6, 7 and 8, depending upon the student maturity, or where they are in the year.

This is for that time of year when you need a practical group exam for Years 7 - 9. It is like a IGCSE Pre-release paper (for the devising element) with four different stimuli for groups to choose from (pictorial, poem, title and music choices), the grading levels with descriptions and a written evaluation sheet for their reflection.
