Ideas, Plans, Themes for Drama Teaching May 23rd, Comments Off on Ideas, Plans, Themes for Drama Teaching After many years of drama teaching to British high school students Key StagesI have started to put together some of the ideas, themes, warm-ups, games, productions that I have worked through with students. Some are articles published at Suite Some will be unique articles published here.
English It is our vision in the English Faculty to create independent learners. From Year 7 students begin on a pathway meet their academic potential and to become successful readers, writers and speakers. We actively encourage discussion and team work in the classroom to encourage students to use skills which will prepare them for life outside of school.
The new curriculum begins in Year 7. We use the information we receive from Primary Schools to place students in appropriate groups and to ensure that their transition to our school is as seamless as possible.
Initially, Year 7s enjoy a two to three week transition unit which gives them time to settle in and understand our high expectations of both attitude and behaviour.
Once settled in, their learning journey begins with autobiographical reading and writing. Our hope is that each child makes their expected progress and that they flourish; becoming confident in all English skills.
This journey takes students all the way to Year 11, when they are prepared thoroughly for their terminal examinations. Furthermore, when we study texts we also study their social, historical and moral contexts which only help children in their understanding of the world around them.
Throughout the five year curriculum, formative and summative assessment informs the class room teacher of student progress. They will also study a wide variety of poems and a few short stories along the way. Students will be given many opportunities to improve their writing, including revising and practising grammar, punctuation and spelling; they will write letters, speeches, advertisements, short stories, journals, new articles; all designed to encourage creativity and versatility in their writing.
Following this, they will undertake the non-examination assessment which is a single essay based on two texts of their choice.
In order to support students, we teach one novel to the class for example The Picture of Dorian Gray and then give students the option to choose one text to compare and contrast to the class reader; or should they have the ability to, they can have the freedom of choosing both texts.
This is an interesting unit and one which the students enjoy. It teaches them close reading skills, independent and analytical thought, how to use critical views and how to plan, draft and improve their work.
In Year 13, they go on to study texts based on and set in World War One.Free advertisement analysis papers, essays, and research papers.
