Stage Type Analysis Worksheet

Stage Type Analysis Worksheet

A worksheet with clear examples of the 4 main stage configurations (Proscenium Arch, Traverse, Thrust and In-The-Round) to use when teaching students about the positives and negatives of each type. A good idea is to have students stage a scene in a play they are studying on each stage type (with the shape marked out on the floor with LX tape or chalk). They then annotate what they felt the strengths and weaknesses of each type are once performing and watching on all 4.

Physical Theatre Workshop Powerpoint (Frantic Assembly Focus)

This powerpoint can be used to lead a workshop on the work of Frantic Assembly or as an introduction to the style. The workshop normally runs at around 45mins-1hour but can be shortened depending on group size, age and ability if you wish. Included are clear instructions on how to run a Frantic Assembly warm-up, 3 video examples of Frantic Assembly's work in action and some basic Chair Duet choreography which you can use to inspire your students before they go off to create their own work. Exercises are explained in the presenter's notes of the powerpoint so that you can ready yourself to deliver the session with confidence. The powerpoint is ready to go as soon as it is delivered. You will need to ensure you have a projector and the ability to play music (links to youtube pages with the required music tracks are included in the presenter notes). You will also need to ensure that you have a chair for each participant for the final task.

KS3 Greek Theatre Full Scheme of Work

KS3 Greek Theatre Full Scheme of Work

This is a full scheme of work which is ready to use immediately after downloading cutting down your preparation time enormously! Each of the 6 lessons come with a detailed lesson plan, powerpoints featuring examples of Greek Theatre in action, key terminology details and scaffolds for practical work. Also included are worksheets, rehearsal diaries, self reflection sheets and opportunities for assessed tasks to take place. There are also a multitude of extension activities for gifted students and suggested ways to support weaker or SEN/EAL students noted on most lesson plans. Note that from lesson 4 onward you can use masks. I bought a set of cheap white ones from Amazon for around £1 each which work perfectly. They do not have to be expensive or detailed, it is just important the students have the experience of working with their face covered. Alternatively, Lesson 4 could be skipped if you have no masks and references to them in future lessons can be removed without impacting upon the lesson plans too much.

What Went Well/Even Better If Feedback Cards

What Went Well/Even Better If Feedback Cards

These cards are used in lessons to aid students in the provision of feedback to peers. Students are given the cards when their peers are performing, in order that they can formulate a response to the statements "What went well?" and it would have been "Even better if..." so that you can call upon them quickly at the conclusion of a performance. The cards feature a structure and example answer which will aid newer or weaker students. Key terminology is also displayed on both cards for students to refer to. Can also be helpful for students to use when analysing their own work. This is a versatile and valuable resource which can be used from Key Stage 3-5.
