Summary. When writing a script for an educational visual information
program, use the "building block" process and principles that we covered:
a. Research the subject,
b. Develop the outline,
c. Write the treatment,
d. Develop the storyboard, and
e. Write the script.
We will never be able to overstress the fact that to be a good script-
writer, you need more than the principles and exercises we covered in this
subcourse. Your ability to be creative is essential; your "free-thinking"
ideas and innovations are the elements that will enable you to become a good
scriptwriter rather than "just" a scriptwriter. If you are in a position to
use these principles, and practice them, then you are on your way to
becoming a good scriptwriter. Remember, always write a script that uses the
"you should do", "we will;" and "Sergeant Jones
received", etc. Good luck to YOU!
