About this Resource

This series of Comedy Scriptwriting Workshops for Year 5/6 students is delivered in partnership by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF). The workshops are generously supported by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.

This resource was developed for schools participating in our virtual workshops. It aims to support teachers in developing students’ understanding of:

  • Comedy genres
  • Scriptwriting
  • Performance
  • Audience
  • Online learning environments

Students will also view clips from children’s sketch comedy series, You’re Skitting Me, and use Sketch-O-Matic – the online writing tool inspired by the series – to format their own scripts.

If you have any questions or feedback about the workshops or this resource, please contact: education@actf.com.au
