  1. I just used another Matava script today, “Lazy”. I haven’t used them as much as I should, really, because every time I do I get a homerun (relatively speaking to many of my flops 🙂

    The three I’ve used are Lazy, The Refrigerator, and Afraid of the Package.

    I’m curious to know how Anna turns her questionnaires into scripts. I know that many people use the Persona Especial, or Star of the Week, and so have I, but with little success. I think that’s do mostly because it simply just not a story. I mean, what else is there besides stories, right? I wonder if Anna’s scripts from her questionnaires are similar to the Star of the Week activity.

  2. The way to turn the questionnaires into stories is to take the one fact (someone plays a sport or an instrument, or has a cat or a dog, or has to clean the house, or likes chocolate) and make a little bitty story line out of it.

    An easy example:

    Someone has a cat. (We find out its name, its size, its color.) Is it a good cat or a bad cat? (bad is the right answer here.) What does it do? (it bites, scratches, eats something it shouldn’t, pees somewhere it shouldn’t.) How does the owner react?

    And there is your story. Of course it could go in a lot of different directions, but that is a place to start, at least. I do one like that for every kid in the class in level 1, before we do anything else. By the end of it they know a lot of language, and we can dive into the scripts like the refrigerator or the package script.
