Drama Year 11


Improvement Target What can you do?
To ensure work is neatly presented in books. a) Write date, title/learning objective and underline with a ruler.

b) Use blue or black pen with colours where appropriate.

c) Cross out with a single line e.g. cross out

d) Glue sheets in neatly without folding if possible

To know, understand and use keywords.
To find ways to add expression to your performances.
To contribute to class discussions in a positive way. It’s OK to be wrong! Contributing an idea is a positive thing and it doesn’t matter if your idea is ‘right or wrong’.  What matters is that you contribute in a positive way that helps move the discussion along. Be brave!
To STAR during discussion/performance. Sit up!

Track the speaker i.e. look at the person who is talking/performing.

Ask questions (asking lots of questions is good learning behaviour)

Respect all learners

To explain using examples to justify points both verbally and in writing.
To raise your aspirations of what you are capable of. Everybody is aiming for the best grades i.e. Grade 9 or Distinction. We are realistic that some students will not achieve these grades but we know that by always aiming for the very best that we will hopefully achieve a grade that is ‘great for us’. Trying our best every day is what counts!
To compare plays using keywords effectively.
To learn lines quickly and accurately.
To develop a character considering all appropriate dramatic conventions.
To use props and space to greater effect.
