Scrip and Scrippage: Model "Trans-ACTIONS" for Involving Students with Books.
Los Angeles City Schools, CA. Div. of Instructional Planning and Services.
The 12 model assignments presented in this booklet are designed to help secondary-level students become more skillful and knowledgeable readers and to encourage the appreciation of literature. Each assignment provides a general objective, a product that the student is to create, a list of concepts and skills necessary to complete the assignment, a checklist for students to follow, a list of educational objectives which are specifically related to students' actions during the course of the assignment, suggestions for extending the assignment, and an example of a form or an excerpt from a text which can help students complete the assignment. Options are described for using these resource materials as class projects or as independent study assignments. Exercises include reviewing the dominant elements of setting (using haiku), identifying an episode in a novel or biography which lends itself to dramatization (using reader's theater), demonstrating understanding of technical language in a nonfiction book (using a crossword puzzle), and so on.
