     In this class, students will be writing "within authentic contexts." We will be focused on the writing process to get to the final product. As the students write, I will be writing as well, because we are ALL writers in this classroom. All writers have struggles, even experienced ones. For the second 9 weeks, we will be looking at theater scripts as well as produce a short 10 minute play that is performance ready. The third and fourth 9 weeks will be focused on screenplays for film and television respectively, and the students will also be involved in the writing process to produce a short screenplay of their own.
