Melodrama Scheme of Work
This scheme of work introduces students to the genre of Melodrama. Students explore the stock characters through fun, interactive activities and then develop their knowledge and understanding through practical workshops based on the story of ‘Maria Marten - Murder in the Red Barn’. It enables the students to develop such key Drama forms as, mime, aside, split scene, hot seating and duologues. Throughout the scheme, atmosphere and mood are explored through the use of spooky music and lighting ideas. A short film clip and 7 pieces of music are included with this scheme.
