Colder Than Here: A Teaching Folder

Availability: In stock.


Quick Overview

A brand new teaching folder created specifically for the new Edexcel 2016 specification to help you teach Colder Than Here for Edexcel's Component Three.

If you've not come across this play before and you're looking for a gem of an exam text to teach then look no further than Colder Than Here. It's a firm favourite here in the EHD offices and this Teaching Folder will help you tech the play in its entirety.

We've had some lovely feedback from customers too:

"Such a wonderful text! One of those that never fail to make me and my students smile!" E. Watts, Bury.
"I'm not sure I've heard a class erupt in to such laughter as when we read the moment where Myra is sitting in her cardboard coffin, watching TV. The sadness of this play is tackled with such honesty but reminds us of the absurd side to such tragedy. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!" Suzy, Chester.

A bittersweet comedy about a family coming to terms with their mother's terminal illness. What sounds like it could be a very tragic play choice, is actually far from what you'd expect. With moments of humour, complex family relationships and some really very witty observations about human reactions to awful news, this will definitely be a favourite with you and your class.

If you're teaching Colder Than Here for Edxecel's Component 3, this folder's for you!

This teaching folder will provide you with a wealth of teaching ideas and resources to teach the entire play, from both a practical and theory-based perspective. Whether you want to dip in out of the folder, or follow it as a complete scheme, this will save you hours of planning. It provides both practical rehearsal ideas to help you cover the entire play, as well as theory-based lesson ideas and handouts to look at the play from acting and design perspectives. It will help you plan and deliver all of your drama lessons, homeworks and handouts when covering this play for Component 3 and ensure that your students are fully prepared for their exam.

All teaching ideas and resources focus upon how designers and performers can use theatrical conventions to realise ideas from the page to the stage.

The folder will provide you with a comprehensive range of resources to help students to respond to an unseen extract from the play, in preparation for their exam.
