Writing a Script: Pen to Paper
Lesson 4 of 5
Objective: SWBAT use narrative techniques to adapt a short story into a script.
To begin today's lesson, I display the last slide of the PowerPoint and ask students to take out their Introduction to Drama notes. Before I have them move back into their partnerships, I will review the instructions for writing the script with them. I especially want to draw their attention to the instruction that they write the script in the correct format.
We then take a few minutes to move to be by our partners and get settled in for our work time.
Getting Down to Business
The students have the remainder of the period to get their scripts completed.
I make a point to circulate while they're working so that I'm available for questions. I will also pause their work occasionally to draw their attention to the time so they can manage their work.
