Creating a world for a story or an art project can be pretty tough. There are lots of little things you probably might not even think about! Using questions from EF's Visit to a Small Planet as a guideline, each student will get a section of the planet or a city to create. Will you be responsible for mountains and rivers? For buildings? For animals? For what kind of clothes the people wear? Will the planet have oxygen and gravity? Maybe it will, maybe it won't. After all, there are planets...
Students will learn presentation skills at their comfort level (or pushed to work outside of their comfort level), students will learn to think on the fly and flex their creative muscles, students will learn to make individual and corporate decisions, students will use their individual art practices to demonstrate what creation looks like to them.
World building is an important part of the creative life. As a playwright, every time I create a new play- I use EF's Visit to a Small Planet as a guide to question my assumptions about what makes a universe physically tick and how characters and worlds are connected together. There are so many fascinating and challenging moving parts to world building that an introduction is a great way to get a student that's either intimidated by or seeking to boost their skill or break through a writing block that one time world building classes can really help.
EF's Visit to a Small Planet can be provided or the smaller workout sheet created by the instructor featuring just the questions from the 7 page pdf- which will be introduced in class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
