This presentation will show participants why and how to incorporate scriptwriting in their ESL classroom by giving participants the knowledge and motivation to create and use wikis in their ESL/EFL classroom for scriptwriting. The presentation will include a brief overview of why both wikis and scriptwriting should be used in the classroom. The presenter will demonstrate how wikis have been used to create scripts in the classroom, and explain options for using the scripts once they are written (i.e., editing, converting into a story, and dramatizing in front of a class).

      After students write their script, they can act it out.
