Drama Schemes: KS3-4 Lesson Plans from the Internationally-Renowned Playwright (Mark Wheeller)

Availability: In stock.


Quick Overview

Imagine if someone offered to write a scheme of work for you for each of your Key Stage 3 and 4 classes… Oh and that that person was a qualified, very experienced Drama teacher whom was greatly influenced by contemporary approaches to Drama such as ‘Mantle of the Expert’… And that they just happened to be an internationally renowned playwright. Too good to be true? No, Mark Wheeller’s Drama Schemes is your wish come true!

The book includes:
• A scheme of work for each year of key stages 3-4, all of which have been conceived and developed through Mark’s own teaching experiences.
• Two schemes which focus on Mark’s use of drama across the curriculum, including his growing admiration for the Mantle of the Expert system of learning.
• An exploration into the crucial role of the much-maligned school production. Through this he illustrates his development of plays such as Too Much Punch for Judy and Hard To Swallow, which have become staple parts of the curriculum, both in the UK and overseas.
Aswell as providing you with ready-planned schemes which are tried, tested and praised by Drama teachers across the country, this book also sheds light upon the author’s reflections on the profession of Drama teaching.
Planning done and some interesting Summer reading all in one book!

“This book should be every Drama teacher’s bookshelf, that’s how strongly I feel about it. All the ideas actually work and they work well. My pupils have responded well to all the activities, even my more challenging, more reluctant class members and that’s saying something! Mark Wheeller clearly has a passion for selecting materials which will inspire and grip students and I knew that I could trust the schemes in the book to result in productive, exciting lessons every time.” Head of Drama, Stockport
