Resource Details

This resource includes a lesson plan for a special effects workshop that can be used as a ‘one off’ lesson or part of a scheme. It teaches pupils how to make their drama more exciting by adding special effects such as lighting, make up, sound and costume. The plan has been adapted for the differing levels of technical equipment that may or may not be available and includes pupil worksheets. We have used this lesson across KS3 & KS4, it is a really good way to get students excited about drama and is inclusive of all abilities. A pupil worksheet / grid which accompanies the lesson is available as a resource sample here.

Author Details - Adele Waites / Elena Kkama

Adele Waites and Elena Kkama have worked together in a school in Birmingham  since 2007, Adele joined the department as a PGCE student in 2007 and as an NQT in 2008. Elena Kkama is the Head of Faculty of Creative Arts and P.E at the school and has been teaching since 2003. The school did not have a Drama Department before the arrival of Ms Kkama who now heads up a department which has been described by OFSTED as the ‘main strength of the school.’

Adele Waites trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in 2003 and worked as a professional actress for four years before realising her calling as a drama teacher! Both teachers are very passionate about their subject and have collaborated on many fun and exciting schemes of works, workshops and articles. Most recently they have developed their own drama assessment level descriptors and assessment process.
