Anyone do this spec? What are your honest thoughts and feelings.
I don't but I'm looking at it seriously for next year. I'm hoping to do some training with two of my friends (different schools) who teach this course so I'm hoping it'll give me a good idea of what they're doing with it and whether it would suit me/my school. I'll let you know when I find out anything.
I teach both drama and expressive arts gcse ocr at my school. Have taught expressive arts for years and changed to drama after horrific results and what I considered harsh marking from another exam board last year. The focus is on both process and performance, the written work can be quite demanding as has to be done in controlled conditions as with all gcse now, but if students are fully prepared for this then all is ok.
Would never change back to other drama exam board.
