WHO? ME! (Identity Devising Unit)
This beautifully designed scheme of work teaches students skills of devising while working on exploring the concept of their own identity - where they have come from and who they want to be. The focus on celebrating diversity and difference while finding community with each other is particularly suited to international schools or schools with a diverse community and encourages a sense of global citizenship. Likely most suitable for younger secondary students - perhaps the first term of Year 7, it uses a range of stimuli, including poetry, videos, and stories to inspire carefully crafted work.
This is a full scheme of work for 6-9 lessons*, with detailed (editable) guidance for the teacher, accompanied by over 50 beautifully designed slides (also editable if you want to adapt them for your context) and with music suggestions built into the slides where appropriate. Each lesson includes a register question; a short provocation for discussion; a warm-up activity; a main practical activity; and a reflective exercise.
