Part of Lesson Plan: Narrative Script Formatting
Activity Overview / Details
Hand out to the students the document titled, "Script Example 1"
And ask the students to take a look at it closely. Ask them what it is? (A film script)...
Ask the class the following question: What do you see? What features make the film script unique? How is it formatted, or structured/organized?
Allow time for discussion....
Havel each student to write their names on the upper right corner of the script example.
At this point, is it good to have each student follow along as you identify each specific element of the script and it's formatting. Slug-line(heading), Transition, Action/Scene descriptor, Parentheticals, Dialogue. Character names.
Now hand out the second handout: Script Example 2.
