Write Your Own Scripts
Nearly all media, be it newscasts, online vodcasts, commercials, TV, radio, or movies, starts with a script. Write Your Own Scripts familiarizes your teen with scriptwriting and gives him behind-the-scenes insights into all manner of media.
Scriptwriting is crafting a story, but unlike a novel that one merely reads, a script comes with specific instructions that inform performers on how to tell the story. In Write Your Own Scripts, your student will study characters, scenes, settings, special effects, dialogue, and more.
Full of tips and ideas, Write Your Own Scripts will help your child every step of the way, from planning and writing to putting on his shows. And since researchers have found that students who work to develop a script gain a deeper understanding of the text, scriptwriting can be used across multiple subjects. Bonus!
