Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
Friday, March 1, 2019
Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is one of the nine set texts for the new Pearson A level specification. These set texts form the basis of section C of Component 3: Theatre Makers in Practice. Section C: Interpreting a Performance Text requires students to write about a set text in relation to a practitioner and the play's original performance conditions. The most effective way for students to understand how they would approach their chosen set text is to have practically explored the text in depth. This scheme of work offers a range of ideas for closely exploring the text in relation to different practitioners to enable students to write in the specific, drama focused way that is required in the exam.
