What do teachers say about this resource? (2118)

I think that this is a brilliant resource and a great starting point for so many lessons. I feel that my learners will really engage with it. I liked the accessibility of it... it relays the information the learner needs but does not patronise. It is sometimes difficult to get the balance right but I feel that this resource manages this

Very good resource, very comprehensive and covered a lot of different topics. The scripts in general were quite simple in structure and easy for students to read. I like the variety and simplicity... A lot of work has gone into this and it a represents good collection of accessible scripts for KS3

B Chapman, Drama Teacher & Peer Reviewer

I liked it... The scripts were pitched at the right level, without being patronising, and there were some useful notes on how to play the scenes in different ways which I thought were great... [The scripts] will intrigue [KS3 students] and not put them off further extended script work. Nice work

I Reade, HoD & Peer Reviewer

This is a great resource, offering particularly good support for the KS3 drama curriculum... The range of topics is excellent. The scripts support a range of abilities and will develop literacy, especially if the classroom teacher is able to develop exercises which look at the language used... [They also] provide some excellent stimulus to support devising work (Both Edexcel and AQA specifications at KS4)

Lively and interesting selection of scripts for the KS3 age range. Good explanations of how to set the scenes and how to further the ideas and scripts... I felt this resource was excellent in firing the imagination of pupils of this Key Stage

A Barnes, Drama Teacher & Peer Reviewer

The resource is a strong one. It does exactly what it says on the tin which is to provide KS3 scripts. The scripts themselves stand as they are and could not be improved. The genres of theatre would be very easy to teach with this resource - what makes the pieces unique and how they vary could form a simple discussion / part of the SOW

N Phillips, HoD & Peer Reviewer

A very good range of scripts that target various styles of theatre and various levels of learning. The scripts are suited to the school environment as they can be adapted for different numbers of actors, and for the different genders... This resource instantly gives the teacher a body of good, manageable, adaptable, understandable and relevant scripts for use in the classroom

H Stockburn, Drama Teacher & Peer Reviewer

Gives students a chance to quickly explore a variety of drama styles

R Farish, Drama Teacher & Peer Reviewer

I particularly liked this resource because it is easy to use. It enhances learning becuase pupils enjoy the scripts. I would tell a colleague in a neighbouring school that this resource is very useful
