Who is the rainforest for?
Sunday, March 1, 2020
Who is the rainforest for? is a cross-curricular scheme of work, providing opportunities for exploring Drama, Geography, Science, Literacy and SMSC. It uses the dramatic technique ‘mantle of the expert’ to explore the topic. Overall, the aim is to provide context for students to apply their knowledge in imaginary settings. Each phase can be shortened or lengthened at the teacher’s discretion, or it could be paused and returned to over the course of several weeks. Students do not need background knowledge before beginning, but would benefit from complementary work. There are suggestions of follow-up work and detour tasks throughout.
