Learners will be asked to complete a project outside of class creating their own fractured fairy tale character. Each student will be asked to draw a picture of the costume an actor could wear to become their character and the setting their character's story takes place in. They will also be asked to answer questions about their character's traits, objectives, and backstory. The time it takes to complete the project will be entirely dependent on how much effort and creativity each student decides to put into it.
Students will be asked to complete a simple project at home that includes answering questions and creating a drawing. Any drawing and writing materials will suffice.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
