Family Conflict Script In our study of the theme of time, we have discussed why families come into conflict. We have read short stories, poems and a play about family conflicts: • The Rabbit • A Man Who Finds His Son Has Become a Thief • Warren Pryor • Lamb to the Slaughter • Like Father Like Son • Bend it Like Beckham Now I would like you to write a script on the topic. You are going to work in groups of 4 or 5 and with your partners you will write a script about a typical family conflict. It could be about parents arguing about money. It could be about parents arguing with teens about grades, it could be about siblings arguing about use of the computer or wireless internet. Your script should be in the same format as “Like Father Like Son”. Once your script is complete I will photocopy one for everyone in your group. You can then create a video on the Imovie app with your Ipad. Or you can choose to act it live in front of the class. The scene should be short and have a clear beginning, middle and end. You don’t need to memorize your lines, but you need to read them with feeling and not just break down into laughter. I also don’t want any violence or physical fighting. You will be assessed using the following criteria: Content – How interesting, creative and realistic was you script? Mechanics – spelling and grammar Acting and Voice – Could we hear the actors? Did you stay in character? Did you read with feeling? Organization and editing of scene – Could we follow the plot? Did you use appropriate editing and effects?
