2.25

Product Description

This product contains TEN brainstorming guides for students to brainstorm new movie ideas and concepts. You can find these brainstorming guides as part of the Bespoke ELA Screenplay Unit, sold separately HERE.

These brainstorming guides will put movie writing at your students' fingertips. 
Screenplay writing is a high-interest type of writing because all students love movies. It's a great way to target COMMON CORE skills while tapping into student interests.

In this product packet, you will find the following "lenses" through which to brainstorm new movie ideas:

1. Traditional Plot Generator
2. When Two Worlds Collide
3. The BLANK from Hell
4. Odd Couples
5. Fish out of Water
6. Fairy Tales, Fantasy, Myths, Legends, and Updated Stories
7. Lesser-Known Facts
8. "True" Stories
9. Unintended Consequences
10. Extreme Measures

Even if you don't have your students complete the entire screenplay unit, these brainstorming exercises will help students think outside the box to create something new! Pair this activity with a literary analysis activity, and students can go forwards and backwards through the writing process-- construct art and take art apart.

The Screenplay Unit by Bespoke ELA is a great project for second semester-- especially after standardized testing. Students can put into action all they have learned about story!
