Macbeth Woosh (Performing Shakespeare)

<p>Based on the RSC training; a Woosh activity to use with the class. In case you’re unfamiliar; as you read out the plot; members of the class come up and act out the plot. When you say “Woosh” they sit back down again. Marvelous stuff!</p>

These are the notes I was given on 'Telling the story: Woosh!' copied word for word from the RSC Education Resources pack. - Players sit in a circle. The teacher explains that the circl is a story circle and the players are going to tell the story together. The teacher will tell the story, but the players will be all the people and things in the story. - The teacher asks is anyone knows a place where things happen in the story? The place is created in the middle of the circle, with the teacher modelling the rules of the game: players will be nominated sequentially around the circle by the teacher when it is their turn. When the story gets to crowded, with a Woosh! they will be sent back to their places. - The teacher tells the story (see script - thanks so much for uploading) involving every player in the telling, modelling the language. The story can be told as a complete narrative, or in sections to 'bridge' between the parts of the narrative that the teacher wants to explore more fully. It really is an amazing course - I went on 'Shakespeare in Special Education'. If you get a chance - go! It is amazing and will change the way you teach Shakespeare.
