Very good article on the importance of writing

Angelica Gilmore's curator insight, September 4, 2015 3:33 PM

I scooped this article that was already on my scoop it news feed because I was very interested in it. It seemed iteresting due to the fact that I am currently learning how to read and write like a writer. Math teachers teaching writing does seem strange when you first hear of it. However when the tactics and methods are explained is is very reasonable and very rewarding to students. Writing is something that should be practiced every day because it is such a critical skill. Just as teachers of different subjects are teaching writing it will be used in life no matter what profession one has. No teacher, including math teachers, should be opposed to teaching writing because as a teacher it does not matter what you are teaching because the main goal is to help students further their horizons and expand to the point where they can achieve anything in life.

An interesting and rather unexpected take on Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, March 15, 2013 3:29 AM

I thought it was a bit like, "Whatever Works" and then it seems to be almost science. Some of the rules are psychological exercises that don’t relate to composition but to a writer’s self-knowledge.

V Renée:  "No one knows storytelling quite like Pixar.  Their films are entertaining on so many levels; they make us laugh, make us cry, and even make us want to become better filmmakers. But perhaps the greatest quality of a Pixar movie is its ability to move an audience, which is a direct result of the brain trust's aptitude for great storytelling."

This is very interesting. Thank you. I really like the insert of a battle seen because there is time for one and the simplification of female characters.
Andrea Deydén's curator insight, September 20, 2013 5:54 PM

La idea del "cambio ilusorio" de Stan Lee me sorprendió muchísimo. Lo demás fue medio "meh" porque, aunque tiene un punto en eso de los errores de narración, hay que ver que el público meta de los cómics (en especial los de antes) eran hombres adolescentes. Violencia + personajes femeninos de apoyo eran un home hit.
