"Excellent book with plenty of variety within. Great for start up teachers, teachers who have been in the game for a long time and also could be adapted for a drama club/theatre company environment. Well worth a read."

Amazon reviewer

All four books in the series include lesson plans and ideas sheets for busy teachers. In this first book you’ll find the following four sections: Foundational Drama Skills, Storytelling, Communication, and Using Props and Costume. You’ll also get a bonus section on putting on a radio play using the Babushka story. There are forty sessions in this book, divided into four sections, enough material for you to run one drama session a week over the school year (plus the bonus section). You can turn the lesson plans and the individual activities into one off sessions, or use them to build schemes of work. They’re flexible, so you and your students can add your own topics, learning objectives, stories, or ideas throughout. Drama is both a teaching method and an art form. You’ll find it is an accessible way into most topics. You can use it to teach English, PSHE, history, or science. You can use it introduce stories – and every topic has a story attached to it if you delve deep enough. You can also link up with other disciplines to inspire Creative Arts projects and Drama is good for teaching important skills such as self-confidence, body awareness, collaborative working and self-expression. You can even use Drama to bring maths or computer programming to life.
