Primary 5 to Primary 6 English Creative Writing: From Page to Film

Writing enrichment can stem from many sources of media. In this course, students will hone their writing skills through a study of books that were adapted into film. We will get our creative juices flowing with whimsical writing tasks designed to bring out the potential screenwriter. In the process, students will study various forms of language tools, themes and motifs that make a narrative alluring. 

Students will have a task at the end of every lesson, they can choose to submit, but the homework will not be marked. Teachers will give an overview and may display good works.

Silence on the set.

In a film, the set is a powerful storytelling tool. How would that translate onto a page? Not only do our descriptions need to be vivid, but it needs to tie in with the narrative we are trying to tell. In this lesson, students will learn how to enrich their writing through a powerful description of setting.
