Class Activity: English or Drama

Gaby Charmont Blog

Have your students practice scriptwriting and storyboarding while creating their very own scene to a play. Through acting out their lines and recording the scene, they will be able to perfect their drama skills while learning intonation styles and proper word pronunciations.

The best part is that it really saves you time later when you go to develop and enhance your slides and record your narration. It very much supports the iterative process, as you can review your storyboard once it is laid out and make changes and revisions as you progress from there.
