This scheme of work explores drama skills through the theme of the plague and the village of Eyam. It offers cross-curricular experience through research of history, and explores the use of expression; movement; the role of a director; freeze frame; split screen; Conscience Alley; improvisation; devising and performance. The overall objective is that students can understand and communicate factual information through drama in a historical context, as well as achieve KS3 drama objectives. I teach this scheme to Year 8.
