There will also be two Q&A sessions during the course so that you can ask specific questions about your school, your context or your curriculum.

Course outline

Week 1: Monday 15th November to Friday 19th November 2021

Day One: Identify Knowledge. Review the content your current curriculum and identify what you would like to teach in your new Drama Curriculum. We will also review your schools boundaries and contexts, and how much that will impact on your choices and options.

Day Two: Identify the Big Picture. We begin to structure your new Drama Curriculum across all the Key Stages you teach so that you can show progression in learning knowledge and building towards developing informed, well rounded and educated young people.

Day Three: Units of Learning. On this day we bring together the different strands of knowledge into Units of Learning and how knowledge builds in individual Units of Learning, cultural capital can be developed and formative assessment folded into it.

Day Four: Instructional design for factual knowledge. Today we go deeper into the Units of Learning and create a strategy for delivering factual knowledge to your students.

Day Five: Retrieval Practice Strategies. Having looked at how we will deliver factual knowledge, today we will explore the role of retrieval practice and how best to employ it in Drama for both practical and theory work.
