A Linha Curva Motif Writing - Liris and Robson (GCSE Dance Anthology)

(0)
These resources include the written motifs, with tasks to identify actions, space, dynamics and relationships within them. There is also a task where students can write their own. This is good revision for A Linha Curva but also promotes literacy and detail in writing motifs. Attached is also an ASDR booklet which can be used to improve terminology.

KS3 Drama Word Bank (Creating, Performing, Evaluating)

KS3 Drama Word Bank (Creating, Performing, Evaluating)

(0)
Best printed and laminated for use during performances and evaluation lessons. On one side is a basic word bank for students to choose from (to avoid them repeating the same thing that each group did well or need to improve), and on the other are sentence starters and connectives to develop vocabulary and use of full sentences when evaluating performances in class. Once the students get used to using them I found that performance feedback was much quicker and more valuable. I also have a dance one in my shop.
