Today we began learning the functions of playwriting. Students were given assignment #1 and #2.
Assignment #1- Look around you until you notice an interaction or behavior between people that you find interesting. Describe what happened between the people involved vs. what was said.
Assignment #2- Write a personal credo-- a personal statement of convictions. A credo is a writer's beliefs concerning topics he/she feels are highly important--portions of life that concern the writer the most--topics about which the author has a deep emotional attitude--topics can be anything--religion, politics, morals, values, humanity, relationships, world issues, etc. Begin each statement with "I Believe..." and make statements positive rather than negative. List at least 10 statements. Select one and write a short essay expanding on your convictions concerning this belief.
