Leaders need to be able to work together. It’s a skillset that’ll carry with you for a lifetime. When everyone is in sync and prepared, things go well, but when students aren’t engaged, groups can fall apart. Movie Script brings to life the need to come together as a group and act as one.

  • Your students will learn the importance of having everyone in the group engaged and the challenges a group faces when a team member isn’t prepared
  • Your students will be reminded of the need to always be ready
  • Your students will learn the correlation between how one prepares and how one performs
"This exercise was powerful. It was crazy to see how the dynamics that allowed us to be successful in movie script are the exact dynamics we need to have to be successful as a team."

Teacher Reflection

Take a moment to reflect on the lesson and how you can lead by example to your students. 

How prepared are your students for tests/assessments? It seems like there is never enough time in the day or class period to cover everything. There’s only so much you can do, but spend some time this week reflecting on and making sure students are getting the necessary reps at the skills needed to perform well when their number is called.
