Storytelling SoW: Introduction to Drama
hayleymariespiershayleymariespiers

Storytelling SoW: Introduction to Drama

(0)
A 7/8 lesson scheme of work that teaches basic storytelling skills (i.e. body language, facial and vocal expression, freeze frames, basic script-writing) to students. It is focused around students using autobigraphical stories to create a short drama performance - which means that it can also help students get to know one another better. (It is written for my incoming Year 7 students, as their first experience of Drama.) There are 7 PowerPoints with accompanying notes in the Speaker’s Notes section where necessary. The final PowerPoint (lesson 7) can be done in 1 or 2 lessons, depending on how much time you have. Peer Evaluation and Self Reflection forms are called for in the scheme but not included in this bundle. All other worksheets and resources are provided. The documents entitled “Mood Activities” and “Vocal Activities” are descriptions of the vocal and mood activities mentioned in the lesson plans 4 and 5. (Please note: My students are NOT native English speakers, so there may be more emphasis put on vocabulary than you need. Please adjust accordingly.)

Script SoW: 'Sparkleshark' by Philip Ridley

(0)
This 7-lesson unit teaches students how to approach a script and bring it from page to stage. Key skills covered include: character exploration through role-on-the-wall and hot-seating; forum theatre; blocking and staging. A full read-through of the script is completed at the beginning of the unit, and key scenes are explored in class throughout the unit. Students are also introduced to how to direct, as well as three basic stage types (Proscenium Arch, Thrust, Arena). The unit culminates in a performance of the final scene. Please note: I do not own the rights to the script, and am not responsible for you/your school’s use of it. Permission to use the script must be sought by you, using the appropriate channels.
Greek Theatre: Myths and the Greek Chorus
hayleymariespiershayleymariespiers

Greek Theatre: Myths and the Greek Chorus

(0)
A 5-lesson scheme (6, if you require an additional rehearsal lesson) on Greek theatre, focusing specifically on the role of the Chorus. Working in groups, students are assigned different myths which they read in full and explore through the creating of tableaux. Then, they are given 6-panel storyboards (included in the resources) which condense their myth into 6 key moments. Students are taught how to speak and move in unison, and they then use their storyboards to create and perform 6 scenes in the same manner. Opportunities for oral and written feedback are written into the scheme, as well as a teacher’s assessment marksheet which you can adapt for your own use. Myths are of varying difficulty levels for learners across a wide spectrum. This could be adapted for use in a range of different year levels and capabilities.
Duologues (Mini Unit)
hayleymariespiershayleymariespiers

Duologues (Mini Unit)

(0)
A short, snappy, 2-lesson unit (or 4, if your lessons are only 1 hour) on performing a duologue. The lessons focus on vocal and facial expressions, and also incorporate prior learning on body language, gesture and attitude. The unit outcome is a Zoom/online performance which students are required to record for homework, so this is great for distance learning, online learning, or blended learning - but works just as well in the physical classroom, too!
Pass The Object: Distance Learning SOW

Pass The Object: Distance Learning SOW

(0)
This 10-lesson unit teaches the basic performance skills and guides students through how to write a simple monologue. It culminates in a performance video, in which students create a “pass the object” challenge video tying their monologues together. This package includes a range of games that can be played over Zoom as well as all PPTs, worksheets, evaluation forms and assessment grids needed to make your life as easy as possible :) Ideal for distance learning but can very easily be adapted for classroom use if needed.

(0)

It is focused around Theseus & the Minotaur and leads on from my SoW: Storytelling (also available on TES). There are 7 PowerPoints with accompanying notes in the Speaker’s Notes section where necessary. The final PowerPoint (lesson 7) can be done in 1 or 2 lessons, depending on how much time you have. Peer Evaluation and Self Reflection forms are called for in the scheme but not included in this bundle. All other worksheets and resources are provided.

Technical Theater: Classroom Learning
hayleymariespiershayleymariespiers

Technical Theater: Classroom Learning

(0)
Four lessons that cover: What is musical theater? Staging Lighting Costumes Designed to do in a traditional classroom setting (i.e. no groupwork, no practical work) because of covid-19 social distancing rules. Each lesson, students learn about a new technical theater skill by watching a scene from a different musical (full list of links included in the package) and analyzing one element of it. There are also supporting tasks, prompts for class discussions/mindmaps, and 2 home learning tasks. This would also be useful for when we get kicked out of the drama studio for various reasons, or could be easily adapted for cover work!

It covers the basic skills we use frequently in drama - still image, body language, tension, gesture, levels, proxemics, etc. ALL lesson plans, PowerPoints, performance assessment sheet, MTP and resources are included in the pack! You can simply download and teach. Students explore the story of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” as well as being given opportunities to devise their own scenes based on simple ideas. Later, they work on a group project in which they devise scenes based on a book they are studying in English (I use ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’, but you can use whichever book, movie, game etc you like - very easy to adapt!).
