Spy School: An Introduction to Stanislavski's Method Acting

This resource blows my ideas out of the water. It is perfectly pitched for the lower end of KS3. N Phillips, Head of Drama & Independent Reviewer

A fun, six-lesson Scheme of Work which demystifies the theories behind Stanislavski’s Method Acting techniques using the pretext of your very own Spy School.

In six lessons students train to be MI6 agents, discover how to create new identities and use Stanislavski’s method acting techniques to do it.

Lessons focus on:
  1. Imagination and Belief
  2. Physical Apparatus
  3. Magic If
  4. Tempo and Rhythm
  5. Sense & Emotional Memory
  6. Objectives and Obstacles

The Scheme of Work also includes supporting resources which can be used easily as part of the lesson, quick revision or prompt sheet. The simple format makes it easy for teachers to know exactly what their lesson should entail with very little to no preparation.
