Scripting Change

Grades 7th-12th | 15-25 Students  |  10 One-Hour Sessions

Bolster students’ academic, social, and emotional skills as they undertake the process of creating an original play.  Students learn about character development, conflict resolution, the power of positive choices, and the importance of personal responsibility. Professional writers guide the class through the process of identifying real world characters and conflicts based on the group’s experiences, teaching them to see each scenario through multiple perspectives. At the conclusion of the program, students will have improved writing skills and understand how a positive or negative choice has a direct impact on their community.

This program is designed under consultation with participating schools to ensure the topics of the play and the duration of the residency meets programmatic goals on each campus. Additionally, the program can be adapted for 5th and 6th grade classes.
