Learners will examine the stages of the Hero's Journey from their favourite films and then apply them by creating their own original screenplays.

Class experience

US Grade 6 - 9
Students will learn the formula for creating a hero and their journey in a story that will resonate with audiences.  They will also learn the structure and format for proper screenplay writing.
I have been a senior level English and Writer's Craft teacher for more than 20 years, but beyond that I am a writer myself.  I've written a Young Adult novel featuring a heroic character on his own journey, I've written numerous screenplays, and I've been a script reader for a production company.  
Homework Offered
Additional writing outside of class time is encouraged, but not mandatory. We will be developing a story and screenplay as a group based on discussion and input from everyone in the class. Students can input a lot or a little - it's up to them!
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class

When coming up with story ideas, we might talk about some dangerous, perilous, spooky, and mildly violent scenes, and then write about them.  Make sure your student is okay with that.
