I tried doing a model screen-writing yesterday with a level 2-3 group on Poor Anna. I thought it would be cool, and there was a lot of language that we covered, to decide what the scene would be, how the opening would be narrated, if necessary, or if that would just be part of the script. Then we talked about where the action would start, how Anna would be dressed, what time of the year it would be, how the other students would act toward her in class (and how they would be dressed). FLOP! I heard from other groups how much the students didn’t like it.I didn’t like it either.
I need one of Nathan’s flowcharts again! I think I’ll just refer to the last one, and figure that no one wants to start something new this week before finals.
