MISSING PERSONS DRAMA SCHEME OF WORK FOR KS3.

MISSING PERSONS DRAMA SCHEME OF WORK FOR KS3.

(1)
A full scheme of work, including resources, to cover the sensitive topic of a school girl who goes missing from her family home. I use The Beatles' 'She's Leaving Home' within the scheme but do not have it available to offer as part of the scheme. I am sure it could easily be found online. There are eight lessons in total. The first, for eg, involves bringing in a bag of items that could belong to the missing girl and students working out what kind of girl the missing girl is, from these items. This is followed by a village meeting, where her disappearance is announced. Y7 & 8 particularly enjoy this scheme.
