This is a really useful handout that shows student exactly how they're being marked in drama.
A lot of people/students think drama is a subjective course ("If the teacher likes me, I'll do good") but this shows them that it's absolutely NOT - and there's very specific things we look for as teachers.
It goes through the creative process, and explains how they're marked at every stage.
This really helps to show them that it's not all about the final presentation - but also about what goes INTO the presentation (preparation, rehearsal, working as a group member etc.)
It breaks it down into:
....and gives them really realistic descriptions of the things that fall into these categories.
Hope it helps! I find it does - and it's important to show them right off the bat that EVERYTHING they do counts...and there's specific "look for's" in every project
