Do you enjoy telling stories?
Then Scenario Performance (ScP) may be for you!
Scenario Performance was designed by FPSP Australia to develop and sustain the oral tradition of storytelling. This component is ideally suited to students who show thinking abillities in different ways -- particularly those whose cultural heritage and/or learning styles prefer oral communication.
Scenario Performances are connected to the annual FPSPI Scenario Writing topics. Participants develop futuristic stories to present in a creative and entertaining manner. The stories are performed rather than written.
