Supporting A Level Edexcel Component 1: Devising

30 original, stand-alone activity worksheets to guide your students step by step through the devising process.

Split into three progressive sections mirroring the spec:

  1. Creating and developing – use chronologically to channel students’ creativity into mark-winning pieces
  2. Devised performance or design realisation – mix and match to provide focus and inject energy
  3. Analysis and evaluation – break the process into bite-sized chunks and transform notes into first-class portfolios
The activities are diverse and inspiring E Haynes, HoD and Independent Reviewer

Perfect to supplement or shape any scheme of work:

  • Ensure students meet all relevant AOs and spec requirements with detailed teacher guidance
  • Use as a basis for a teacher-led workshop, or encourage autonomy by giving straight to students
  • Focus on portfolio as well as performance – show students how to gain marks

Plus! Includes overview grid with timings for quick and easy planning

What do teachers say about this resource? (9953)

Well suited to a mixed ability group of A Level learners. Clear structure and easy to read (for teachers or students)... Section 2 has some very detailed activities and would offer devising students a real focus for their devising work

R Crosbie, Drama Teacher & Peer Reviewer

The activities are diverse and inspiring... Assessment Objectives are outlined clearly in the overview of the resource and the focus is relevant throughout... This would definitely be a resource that I could use as a basis for the teaching of Component 1: Devising. I would use it as a starting point for my first term Scheme of Work with Year 12 students and expand upon the material offered.
