Let's Devise Theatre!

(9)
This is a starting place for learning about devising theatre and the different ways you can use Drama to express and communicate ideas to an audience. Based on using the explorative strategies from the legacy Edexcel Drama GCSE Specification, the scheme of work gives the students opportunity to explore a number of different stimuli to create innovative, thought provoking and challenging theatre. It is a great starting point to provide your students with a common vocabulary for the rest of their GCSE Dram course, regardless of what exam board you cover. Ideal for Key Stage 3 or Key Stage 4 as a starting point to learn the main key terminology students need to know so that they can move on to create their own devised performances.
