I particularly liked the scheme of work section... There's variety of activities and plenty of useful supporting material

What do teachers say about this resource? (1675)

This resource is a godsend because of the inclusion of the play and the SOW that is enclosed within it. I liked the choice of play because i felt it was challenging but achievable. I feel that the SOW that accompanies the play is very well planned and guides the learners into really analysing the characters and plot on different levels. The resource works really well with the vocational aspect of the BTEC as well as the GCSE level learner. The subject matter of the play is really speaks to the learners on their level and I feel that they will really engage with this piece

It was an interesting resource that covered a range of explorative strategies and aspects of drama. It was suitable for GCSE students.
