“Atticus Spit” – A short screenplay


Even after all these years, Atticus is still the man!

Here’s a seven-page screenplay a creative writing student assigned me last year.  I like to participate in the writing workshops I teach, so here’s my response to the following:

Write a short screenplay that includes a troubled teen, a conflict at school, and a classic movie.

I spent an afternoon on this modest attempt.  I had some fun with it, and it’s actually loosely based on a reaction another student had to this scene when I showed the movie during my first year of teaching.

Let me know what you think! – Bill
