SOS Drama Cards: Developing Independence in Drama

Three sets of display cards, “I can’t think”, “It’s rubbish” and “I’m finished” focus on overcoming common obstacles faced by students in developing drama skills.

  • Develops PLTS as students work to solve their own problems in groups
  • Highly versatile – presented on CD so that colour copies can be printed and laminated for classroom display

  1. Students who need help to develop their work independently use the SOS cards, based on common classroom complaints, for inspiration on how to improve their performance

  2. Students turn over their chosen card for ‘Things to Try’ and ‘Questions to Think About’ which enable them to inventively develop their own drama work
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4602)
"Fabulously easy to use and full of ideas and inspiration. It helps me because I can move on to another group whilst the last group works on the cards suggestion." S White, Drama Teacher and Satisfied Customer
"I was very impressed with these - I really liked the concept and they'd be very easy to implement. I could also see them being used as effective differentiation strategy which is sometimes hard to demonstrate in drama although we know we personalise the learning all the time." S Hill, Drama Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
[The resource] enhances learning because it helps to lead [students] to independent learning, by taking a problem and solving it themselves instead of waiting to be spoonfed. J  Gillespie, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
