Comedy - A Scheme of Work

(0)
“Dying is easy. Comedy is difficult”. But like everything else it can be done more successfully when analysed and practised and this scheme will help incalculably. So here, across 10/11 sixty minute lessons, running to 30+ pages and 8,000+ words, you will find a scheme of work looking at: Black (Dark) Comedy, Stand-up, Improvisation, Slapstick, Sketch Shows and Sit Coms. All of this is tied up with an end of unit assessment. All the support links and sheets are included and lessons are planned in timed sections. This is suitable for Key Stage 3 (or for Key Stage 4 who have little drama experience, or for ex-curricular or Drama Club projects). Download the sample from the link in second image for a complete lesson.

The Monologue Pack - A Complete Scheme of Work

(0)
This is a superbly detailed (136 pages, 30,000+ words) scheme of work on monologues which an OFSTED Inspector described as “spine-tingling”. Through thirty inter-connected yet stand-alone monologues, students explore the relationships between members of a school community. Depending on your cohort size, this is easily a half term’s work, probably more. The lesson plans take you through the performance stage of the monologues, and then lead into the devising stage where the characters start to interact. Contains thirty monologues, lesson plan divided into Units, homeworks, links to other works, teacher notes, handout sheets for students (including line-learning and performance tips) – everything you could possibly want is here. Monologues have been successfully performed at Drama evenings. Suitable for Year 9 and upwards – maybe even committed Year 8s. Supplied in both Word and PDF formats

Distant Relatives - A Socially Distanced Farce

(0)
After their disastrous staging of “Titanic – The Play”, the Frimley Players are proud to present the slightly less ambitious “Where There’s A Will”. Written and directed by, and accidentally starring, Camilla Hardacre, it is being staged – at just three days’ notice - under social distancing conditions. Unfortunately, the cast have not had time to rehearse this new version. In the style of “The Play That Goes Wrong”, this play-within-a-play is a hilarious comedy which schools, colleges and groups will find very “do-able” in the current climate, either as a classroom project or an actual production. There are two versions – for live productions and for Zoom-type presentations / recordings.

This Is Me! (Scheme, six or more lessons)

(0)
Four detailed lesson plans (60 minutes each) looking at the subject of Body Image, followed by two (or more) further optional lessons which give opportunities for formal assessment through a devising process linked to GCSE criteria. This is an issue which is sure to resonate with your students and here it is treated in an informative and sensitive manner which will challenge their pre-conceptions. How we look at ourselves - and at others - with one lesson referencing The Greatest Showman and P T Barnum. The theme is “acceptance” - both of ourselves and of others - and the scheme can be used with Year 8 upwards. Contains all required resources, including PowerPoint, music and links.

Message in a Bottle - TIE Scheme

(0)
This is a lovely resource which introduces students to the concept of Didactic Theatre – drama which has a message – more commonly known as Theatre in Education. Aimed at Year 8 or above, the end result of this unit will be work which can be performed to a younger audience. (For example, it has been used as a basis for a BTEC group to devise and perform a play about Internet safety to incoming Year 7 students). This makes it ideal for producing work to show to primary schools, new Year 7 students and so on. A 4-page script is used as the basis for students to produce their own devised message play using the same characters – the cartoonish Daft family. Students are asked to evaluate their own devised work at the end of the process and a helpsheet is provided for this. The script is accompanied by a full scheme of work (6 lessons), extension and homework activities and Key Words.

The Zarg Competition - A Movement Lesson

(0)
The whole of this movement lesson (Drama and Dance are NEVER mentioned!) is run from the fantastic 30-slide PowerPoint. Music, animations, timers and jokes are all included. It has been used with great success with Years 5,6 and 7. It could even be used - and has been - with GCSE/BTEC . It’s a one-off lesson which could lead to further work but is ideal for Year 6 Induction days, Cross-Curricular Citizenship days, Arts carousel days or a bit of end of term fun. If you analyse it deeply (you needn’t) it’s about celebrating diversity and accepting difference. It’s a Dance/Drama lesson for those who specialise in either, neither or both. Even boys love it – who wouldn’t love the opportunity to become an alien for a while? One of the most popular R4D resources.
