Students are putting the finishing touches on the scripts for their stories. We have been talking about showing and not telling when it comes to good writing. When the scripts are done, students will begin thinking about music and sound effects. The ultimate goal is a recorded story similar to what you may have heard back in the golden days of radio. I am sure you all remember. I know I do.
Each student should have created a Task list of the steps they need to follow in order to complete their next magazine articles. Many of the students are doing surveys or interviews. You may ask your child to show you their task list. It is a Google Doc. I will be looking over them tonight and tomorrow.
