This product is part of the Conflict Drama Scripts - Grade 10 script based approach to teaching drama.
These 26 short, partnership scenes are focused upon different forms of conflict (ex. grief, fear) that students prepare, rehearse and perform within two classes for each scene.
Students are required to prepare their scripts by identifying their objectives, their own and their partner's desires and needs, and to establish connections between formal script preparation, rehearsal and performance.
This unit can be shortened or extended depending on the number of scenes that students are given to choose from, roughly speaking, though, it usually last about 4 weeks.
All the scripts in this unit are original, and have been written specifically for this grade level and age group. All these scenes have also been extensively tested in my classes for years, so I can attest to their effectiveness.
As well as the scenes themselves, there are 'Notes' to both the students and teacher about the preparation, purpose and use of the scenes.
Teachers should note that this unit part of the script based approach to teaching drama (Conflict Drama Scenes) that begins with Neutral Scenes and culminates with the Long Form Drama Scenes.
This product is not only intended for experienced teachers looking for materials and specific scene types. As this unit is extensively explained, it would also be of use to beginning teachers. Teachers should note, however, that this unit will require some teacher participation in terms of deciding how to mark, present and rehearse these materials within their classrooms. These are not 'classroom kits' with tests and answer keys - these are more the 'materials' that are to be put into students' hands each day.
For an explanation of the whole approach (Conflict Drama Scripts) for this Grade 10 level, please see the "Grade 10 Exploration" Document available on this site.
