Does your student love listening to stories? Do they ever spin a tale themselves, maybe about how the dog, well, ate their homework? If you’re looking to help nourish your student’s creative energy and love for reading, this Fan Fiction Pod is the right fit!
At the beginning of the course I will conduct interviews with the students and parents to hear about what kind of stories they like to tell, movies they like to watch and genres they like to explore. Each Fan Fiction Pod syllabus will follow the interests of the Pod members. For all of the sessions, the students will prepare for creative storytelling through mind and body warm ups that open their imaginations like little flowers. Theatrical games are a ripe place to generate focus and enthusiasm, and we will use my toolbox as a lifelong theatermaker as needed throughout our Pod time. Each Fan Fiction Pod session will have a read aloud and then time for us to make a creative spin-off from what we read. We will explore many mediums, various genres and different adaptations of the original text. Expect handmade books, computer illustrations, filmed hand puppet sketches et al.
