A SPRINGBOARD SIGNATURE PROGRAM
(Originally Developed by Alissa Rowan)
Lights, camera, action! Students become master playwrights/screenwriters and enhance essential literacy skills as they work through the writing process of developing a scene in a play or a movie. Students learn about character creation, story settings, conflict, dialogue, costumes and props, and finally script writing. Then, using the actor’s tools of the body, the voice, and the imagination, students transform into characters and work together to perform in and create a movie based on their script. As students learn basic script and screenwriting and acting skills, they gain confidence in their writing and creativity. Also available for virtual residencies.
Audience: Grades 3-8
Curriculum Connections: English/Language Arts
