The Complete Puppetry Handbook for KS3
Focused, structured lessons enable students to actively learn the connection between movement and emotion. Students progress from learning the history of puppetry to creating their own puppets, to a final performance.
What do teachers say about this resource? (3231)
I really enjoyed this resource and would most definitely purchase it
I really enjoyed reviewing this. I found it stimulating and educational. I think it would be applicable to a number of drama, art, cross-curricular and performance related projects... This resource promotes puppets as performance tools and not as a craft making activity with the final results to be stapled against a wall! Motivating, practical and fun. Plus, through the self-evaluation and task sheets, the children document their own evidence of learning development and outcomes. So all boxes are ticked! I would recommend this resource to teachers at every applicable Key Stage
Very good, comprehensive and well-researched with a lot of information and resources for lessons. Nicely presented and illustrated. Gives a detailed insight into puppetry... Links into drama as a genre and will help less confident students to perform. The lessons are backed up with good illustrations, clear objectives and supportive written tasks
Excellent... There's no doubt that it will [enhance learning], partially because of the structured approach which invites participation. It also invites students to take into account what they already know, an absolute key for enhancing learning
Will definitely allow pupils to explore/create characters which are different to themselves. It will also develop their literacy, in particular their (drama specific) language/vocabulary development.
I thought it was well organised and detailed, with plenty of exercises, and, at the end, lots of evaluation which could be useful for the students.
