This interactive online resource, developed in partnership with Education Scotland‘s Co-Create project, can help teachers deliver interactive lessons in performance art evaluation.
Classes are guided through an intuitive process by Stevie the theatre critic who supports them in critically analysing a performance they have seen.
Stevie takes the class through a structured 3 stage reviewing process which encourages discussion, debate, critical thinking and group work, neatly supporting the Curriculum for Excellence Expressive Arts Outcomes and Experiences across all levels.
At each stage there are interactive activities plus embedded classroom exercises for further exploration of subject themes in drama, art, literacy and numeracy.
In using the Imaginate resource further outcomes of the Curriculum for Excellence are enhanced, for example, pupils will develop critical thinking skills and become more able to express their own thoughts, feelings and opinions with confidence. By working with others through the resource in this way pupils will also learn to have confidence in their own opinions, whilst also valuing, and learning from the views and opinions of other people.
