“An engaging resource for Key Stage 3 Drama, which explores contemporary issues relevant to students from a range of settings, cultures and contexts.

A useful introduction outlines the philosophy for the resources, whilst the teacher tasks at the back of the resource provide clear suggestions for how different scripts might be approached with groups. These include both practical suggestions (e.g. improvisation work) and written work suggestions (e.g. writing in-role through an autobiography)

The contemporary nature of the scripts links to modern news stories and areas of interest. Topics are dealt with sensitively and include a range of different characters which would help to broaden students’ awareness of alternative viewpoints and perspectives.

This resource – if taught with care and sensitivity – has the power to enhance the KS3 drama experience and contribute to the SMSC agenda.

A number of the topics will be areas of interest/awareness for 13/14 year old pupils.

The teacher tasks help to guide the ‘creating’ of drama, which enables targeted teaching towards the drama assessment strands.” – J Kearney, Teacher of English & Drama & Peer Reviewer
