GCSE Drama Revision Guide

These resources have been created to enable students revise the terminology needed to answer exam questions and become familiar with the written element of the exam. Cue cards could be made to revise terminology, students could create character profiles of the key protagonists and try designing costumes, props and set, to allow students to answer the questions in more detail. This can then be used to check subject knowledge and understanding. There are also some exam questions created to practice exam technique.
