WRITING AWARDS SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE BY THE END OF THE DAY MONDAY, MARCH 23. PLEASE FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS ABOUT FORMATTING, LENGTH, ETC.

Pulp: Portfolio reviews, Part II: Seniors. If we didn’t get to you today, we will next week.

Project: As above.

Act One: We ran the one-acts you wrote, based on your choice of two prompts: the synopsis you wrote, or the soliloquy exercise we did. We made notes on our three basic questions: dramatic question/answer; what might be unclear to the audience; how could we raise the stakes?

If you did not turn in a one-act, I strongly recommend that you do so Monday (to me, or to Mr. Cageao). It must be typewritten; I would like to run the rest of these next Wednesday.

Remember, City Theatre’s Young Playwrights Festival will be taking entries until the end of the month. We have already had one winner from Lincoln Park (that was Mr. McInerney, two years ago), and I’d love to see another. If you want to enter, I’ll be happy to help you — but you have to ask.

BatCat:

7th Grade: Took a pre-quiz on your knowledge of basic U.S. history/government. Monday we start making some laws!

Survey: Screenwriting: Today you handed in your scenes – good job, everyone! All of them were handed in.

In class we did a montage activity – we listened to a song while you wrote out or sketched the visuals to go along with it. Here’s the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E3znZoFnN8

I’ll let you finish these up at the beginning of class and you’ll have an opportunity to share. No homework!
