Physical Theatre: Exploring the Slap

You can use the resources below to support you.

Using the course when teaching remotely and for individual students

You may be teaching a full class remotely, or you may need work for individual students. The students can work through the course, and then complete an activity or join a discussion.  

When setting this course for your students, you can choose what work they must send you to show their progress. You may wish to set your own assignments, but to make it easier, you can use one or more of the options described here.

All the text you need to set the work is included in the Physical Theatre: Exploring the Slap Teacher Pack.

Students work on the course individually and send back individual work

The simplest approach is for the students to each complete the course and then submit a piece (or pieces) of work to you based on their learning, using their school email or other agreed communication method. Here are some options for work you can set them (all described in detail in the Teacher Pack):

Option 1: Reflection

They write a short reflection discussing what they have learned on the course.

Option 2: Test questions

Once they finish the course, they complete a short, written assessment with open questions. The questions cover the different steps in the etude and the history of biomechanics.

Option 3: Activities

Students complete a single activity or research task based on some of the content from the course.

Option 4: Project

Based on their learning in the course, they work on a project to storyboard the slap.

Students work on the course individually and then participate in a group online discussion

If you have regular online sessions with your students, you could use these to discuss the content from the course (discussions could be video or text-based). This could be a general discussion, or feature presentation and/or discussion of group work.

Group discussion:

Students record themselves doing all the exercises in the course and submit a video to peer-review.
