Story Creations, 6-8, 12:00
Story Creations is a class dedicated to making classic short stories come to life. In each unit, students will team up to portray a story in a creative medium (as a play, stop-animation film, musical, puppet show, etc.), integrating performing arts, visual arts, and technology into the study of literature. To create a representation true to the original story, students will study the authors and analyze relevant literary elements including genre, plot, characters, diction, figurative language, tone, theme, and more.
In the final project, students will write their own short stories and bring them to life!
