Product Description
My students have always enjoyed Rebel Without a Cause starring James Dean. I've used it with Basic 12th grade and with advanced Film and Novel classes, usually in conjunction with Catcher in the Rye, but not always.

The only complaint tends to be that the teenagers are the using weird slang and are in weird cliques. Instead of ignoring the complaint, I had students create an alternative. This is an assignment that has students rewriting and updating one of about a dozen scenes from the film. Have groups choose so that you don't have to read the same thing over and over, or leave it open.

The assignment provides suggestions, as well as an example of a newer police station scene. The formatting is not perfect as a movie screenplay, but you can direct them to free script-writing programs or templates if that's an important part of your class. There is a rubric, which can be altered for your own focus. Have them work in groups if you like. We discussed voice and point-of-view, but you might want to go for something else. There's a link to the assignment as a Google Doc, and you can have groups all share their scripts to work simultaneously.

If you're in a creative writing, film, or media studies class, this can also be turned into a class film.
