The welcome post and welcome email for this class will include a Script Outline and a Storyboard template. Please download and print these documents for use during class.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
During the icebreaker at the beginning of class, certain students might talk about movies that you do not allow your kids to watch, due to mature content. Students will be encouraged to discuss family friendly movies and I will guide them to talk about different films if they mention titles that would not be considered "generally" suitable for the age range.
