I?m currently doing a PGCE(i) and have been given a year 9 class to teach ?the language of drama? for my lesson sequence that Ineed o do for the course. The class is quite a tough one ? they have a hard time staying on task, working together and taking things seriously (even with the experienced drama teacher, let alone a novice like me who they can spot a mile away!) so my mentor has suggested using a monologue as the vehicle to teach them, so they can work individually in the hope that they?ll focus better. Any suggestions, alternative ideas or pointers to monologues that might work? Thanks!
