Turn a standard essay-writing assignment into a fun, collaborative movie debate!
Students can either write their scripts ahead of time and then paste (or type) them into Plotagon, or they can write directly into the Plotagon script. Encourage them to edit their scripts to create a lively point/counterpoint debate.
Teach students to formulate an argument, write in support of the argument, cite evidence, and edit the argument to support a verbal (rather than written) delivery.
For an example, see the related lesson plan Should Schools Require Students to Wear Uniforms?
