Ok, so I am currently doing my drama PGCE and planning lessons for when I get back after half term. However, I know I have at least one year 7 class who it is going to be difficult to do practical work with. I did the groups first practical drama lesson last week (before this they were doing costume design with a tech teacher) and the lesson didn't go well. I have discussed with teachers etc and decided since it isn't safe to do practical with them when they run around and don't listen, <u>I need to have some written work for them to do as a back up if it isn't safe to continue with the practical lesson.</u> BUT I don't want to give them something that isnt drama related, something they might enjoy more like costume design, writting lines etc. but I have no idea what I can get a class of year 7 with little/no drama experience to do. Any written work ideas for other year groups would be useful too!
