CANCELLED Ways into Scriptwriting

CANCELLED Ways into Scriptwriting
This practical workshop will equip teachers with the knowledge and skills to teach their students to write effective scripts by understanding the fundamental elements of scripts.
Participants will take part in a number of practical drama and writing exercises that will be scaffolded to allow easy implementation in their own classrooms, as well as examples of scripts as models to analyse.
The material and practices used in the workshop will assist teachers to implement creative writing in their classrooms as well as increasing students'  comprehension and appreciation of scripts.
The workshop is based on 'show don't tell', a principle of scriptwriting as well as of experiential learning.
The impact of drama activities on language and literacy development is well supported by a large body of evidence.
