It would be great if we can share links to video clips and lesson materials. I will when I get the terms overview done

Do you have any additional resources you can share in teaching this. I am doing it soon in term 2 and it is not my area.

I have been searching for ideas as I am new to teaching this subject at middle school. Thanks for the ideas Justin.

This is great stuff as always, thank you! Any chance you might be planning a follow up on Tragedy (or at least different types of Dramatic presentation?)

Thanks, this is fantastic.
I do a unit of slapstick with my year 8s as an introduction to drama. We start looking at mime and movement and my theory is to get them to think about how they use their bodies to communicate. I have been amused to see how many of them (now in year 9) still use some of the ‘fake fighting’ strategies we used in their performances.
I have been thinking of introducing comedy to my year 9s in term four and thought I would even try to get them started with ideas around storytelling and build from this into their own stand up routines. Any thoughts?
