What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2118)
"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, Head of Drama and Ind. 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 and Independent Reviewer
"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." J Gilespie, HoD and Independent Reviewer
'Gives students a chance to quickly explore a variety of drama styles.' R Farish, Drama Teacher and Independent 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).' B Sibley, Director of Arts and Independent 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 usew in the class room.' H Stockburn, Drama Teacher and Independent Reviewer
