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.
