This scheme of work uses the emotive subject of bullying as a backdrop for drama development. Students use their own experiences to develop a number of pieces that examine the problem from different angles including those of teachers, witnesses, victims and bullies themselves. Several lessons draw on the students creative abilities to develop lyrics and artwork as well as their drama skills.
Each lesson plan has clearly stated objectives and learning outcomes. They are structured to include introductory warm up, development and plenary sessions. A home work task is also included.
This scheme of work contains 6 drama lesson plans.
