I have created some activities for your class to do before and after the workshop. Just follow the links:
Now all you have to do is book me:
ACTION! (60 – 90 minutes)
Action scenes are some of the hardest things to write. It's difficult to explain what's happening, keep the tension high, and maintain that heart stopping drama. In this one hour workshop we will discuss what makes a great action scene, learn how to create an action character, and find ways to translate movement into written action. Then, as a group, we will create a few fast-paced, live action scenes of our own.
OVERCOMING CHALLENGES AND LEARNING TO LOVE WORDS (60 – 90 minutes)
In this one hour workshop we will search for stories in different types of media like greeting cards and video games. We will find ways around obstacles like dyslexia, ADHD, and other disabilities and challenges which stop us from enjoying words. Then, as a group, we will create an epic live action story (or two) which will become the stuff of legends, proving that anyone can be a writer.
For Adults (Teachers/Librarians/parents/youth workers)
Play with Your Words (60 – 90 minutes)
Play expands understanding, keeps attention, and improves lesson memory. Plus, it’s fun. Learn to captivate your elementary and teen students by turning lectures and ideas into hands on activities which stretch their imaginations, engage their minds, and make specific learning points into games and goals.
