With classmates, students select a book or play that they have read or studied and write a script based on their selection. This can be done as a whole class activity or with students organized in collaborative groups. Alter the storyline in some way to make the script original. Perhaps you did not like the way the story ended-can change it! If the story is set in a different time period, it could modernize! Encourage students to be creative and have fun writing their original scripts!
