Three Week Program
Okay, look, we’re kinda obsessed with stories. Books, movies, tv shows, webcomics, whatever. How do they make such awesome stories? And the CHARACTERS - I want to be their best friend. So sometimes we, kinda, sorta… just write stories about them. IT’S OKAY, it’s totally fine, it’s called fan-fiction!
The first step of learning is imitation. Students will set out to pay homage to the stories and characters they are fans of by using elements of other narratives (their styles, tones, and even their events) to craft original stories set in established universes (and sometimes alternate realities)!
Sample Outcomes - Australian Curriculum
