Interview lesson help!

Discussion in 'Drama and performing arts' started by lou2624, Apr 30, 2011.

  1. Hi guys I have an interview next week and the only brief I have been given for my lesson is to prepare and deliver a lesson to year 11 exploring "text". Now the problem I seem to be having is that it is very broad and I have lots of ideas but i'm not sure which direction to go. Here's the other problem, the lesson is only 20 mins long! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  2. What are your ideas so far?
  3. I thought about giving the class the prolouge from Blood Brothers and asking them what information it gives them about what will happen in the play, or giving them a piece of text and asking how they would stage it to convey the meaning or even exploring the subtext of nursery rhymes. I am just coming up with so many different ideas I can't focus on one.
  4. I think some of your ideas sound quite complicated for an interview lesson. Could you find out whether they've already done Blood Brothers as it's possible that they might have done and then you might be better choosing a less well known text? I think the idea of giving them a section and experimenting with interpretations is a nice idea. I'd be careful of spending too much time in a 20 minute lesson looking at text as it may be that they want to see more practical activities. Only ideas though and every school will be different.
