I'm having a small panic here. I have to teach drama and language to a very, very low ability year 7 class after half term. A large proportion of the class can't read properly and writing is incredibly difficult for them all as well. I have literally no idea how to approach this. So far I've thought of starting them off looking at a playscript extract and labelling the different bits for the conventions of a script... Then using the scene to do drama in small groups but they are quite badly behaved so drama worries me a little bit! I then thought of using you tube clips of different dialects to get them thinking about language in a social context but wasn't sure how to develop this... I'm just a little bit stuck any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated.
