5 Paragraph Movie Review (Opinion) Essay/Outline w/Movie Notes/Worksheet

I work exclusively with at-risk students, this means they are usually working well below grade level. I created this “outline” to help students who are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with the writing process, however, works well as a starter or first draft for any writer. The “outline” walks the student through the essay paragraph by paragraph and sentence by sentence. The outline explain what to write with a prompt and provides an example sentence


B. First Body Paragraph
1. Tell the reader what the movie is about, summarize the plot of the movie.
Example: “Ghostbusters” is the story of three college buddies who start a business catching ghosts for the customers they haunt.
___________________________________________________________________

If completed properly, the student has a first draft that they can type up and start peer editing or a second draft. There are a grading rubric and formatting requirements that not only make the paper more formal but require many different settings be changed in order to familiarize the student with a word processor program.

This “outline” is for a 5 paragraph movie review essay. The assignment asked students to watch a movie and then give their opinion using evidence from the movie to justify their views. I currently use this assignment in October with a “scary” movie (I recommend ParaNorman or Super 8), I have been using it for the past five years with a good degree of success.

Also included is a Notes sheet that helps guide the student before, during, and after viewing the movie. This gives them all the relevant information before they start the writing process.


NOTE: I have decided to include the Word Documents that the PDFs are created from so that if you would like to customize the unit for your classroom you can. However, I have used formatting and custom fonts that are not standard with many versions of Microsoft office. This may mean that opening them with a different version of office or without the same fonts installed will throw the formatting off. If so it may take some work to adapt them in your class. I am including them as an extra and would ask that I am not rated on the usability of the Word Docs. Since they are not the finished product, but an extra.
