Description
Summary:At Stratford Girls Grammar School two groups of Year 12 drama students are approaching their end of year show in rather different ways. One group is devising a piece with a self-appointed director, the others take an unmediated approach but have a script to work from. Teacher Sara Coyle has captured the process on video and shows us a glimpse of the end results on the stage of the RSC Courtyard Theatre.In discussion with consultant Adrienne Jones, Sara Coyle and Headteacher Kate Barnett talk about how video reveals the learning process and aids assessment. Shooting and editing video is a new skill that Sara thinks will help to develop students critical and observational skills. This is vital in drama but it has relevance across the curriculum where a deeper understanding of the process of learning helps with gifted and talented pupils. Process not product is the key and video may provide the evidence.
