The best way to celebrate the 400 year anniversary of Cervantes.

 

QUIJOTE WSPerformance of an extract from the novel: ‘The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of la Mancha’ – 30 minutes of actors playing the part of El Quijote will have the students laughing in no time.

Part 1: Drama techniques – Students will follow instructions through the use of repetitive words and sentences, thereby reinforcing their language skills. Collectively, students will also be encouraged create their own theatrical version of the extract.

Part 2: Devising (collaborative creation) – Pupils will devise episodes of the book in small groups, focusing on incorporating the games learnt in Spanish during the creative process. They will have fun acting out a comic version of four episodes.

These activities encourage the use of drama to provide focus and support for students, enabling them to use Spanish terminology from the story independently.  Summarise Don Quixote book in a two hour workshop for A-Level students with this play. Spanish activities pre and post workshop.  Facilitators: Spanish actresses Maximum 30* students – 1 hour and 30 minutes duration – Spanish teacher optional.
