LC: To write a playscript using the key features taught.


In order for you to produce a quality playscript, this lesson needs to have around two hours dedicated to it. That is why you have no reading lesson today. You MUST put effort into your work so that it is quality and use your playscript plan created yesterday to help you. 

Step one: Reread your playscript plan from yesterday so you are clear

            what needs to be included in your playscript. 

Check your feedback given by your teacher, either through Seesaw or email, and make any changes where needed. 

Step Two: Be clear on the structure and key features of a playscript.
