Here's your chance to have your students writing their first Hollywood type scripts. The writing activity is broken down into simple to follow, yet very descriptive steps. Once they create a 'skeleton" draft they will be able to begin writing. This activity utilizes both skill and creativity and can be differentiated to many academic skill levels, including ELD students as well as other needs that may be present in your classroom.
This takes about 25 minutes to present but will take several hours to complete. I do it in 30 minute blocks for about 7 sessions. Most kids will type out their scripts and summaries.
