I have created lessons for four short films that I especially love because they also explore the topics of teamwork, resilience, kindness, and a growth mindset. These film lessons can be purchased individually or in this four-film bundle at a discounted price.
Using a short film to introduce reading strategies (like Notice and Note signposts) helps students to recognize, understand, and use these strategies more easily when reading a text.
This is a great series of Back to School plans because you can teach important character education lessons while also introducing your students to some reading strategies that they will be using throughout the year.
Each film lesson includes:
-basic plot mapping and plot elements
-prompts for writing and discussion
-lessons for teaching character, conflict, and theme
-Notice and Note signpost pages
-engaging projects connecting the theme of the film to character education topics (kindness/anti-bullying, teamwork, growth mindset, and resilience)
