Product Description
*Please note: I would recommend buying the Pixar Shorts DVD's - you can find them for $5-$10 on eBay or Amazon. While some of the shorts can be found free to watch online it is easier to buy them and is a great investment!

Please don’t buy this pack thinking to get all the videos for free. This is a wonderful pack to learn about using videos for close reading/viewing and to also learn more about each Pixar short. This is not a resource for free videos (although any shorts that are free are linked).

Close Reading does not just mean books as a form of text...it can also mean film! In fact film, especially short films like Pixar Shorts, are a great way to interest those hard to reach students or those students who struggle with reading. These short films are very high interest to kids and is a great way to introduce the concept of close reading!

Pixar Shorts are ideal to Close View (or Close 'Read') because they are very short (usually less then 3 minutes), are high interest, and are perfect to discuss and find new understandings with every view. I find that students who struggle with reading love these films because it allows them to 'read' in a different way and my students always thrived in this environment because they were not worried about the words in a text.

This packet includes 110+ pages on Close Reading (or Close Viewing) of Film as a text. The following is included:

How To Use in Classroom - step by step directions
Why Close Reading - quotes to justify using film in the classroom
Linking to the Standards - linking standards to film
Prompts for Close Reading - link
Worksheets - pick and choose how to use these worksheets (3 versions)
37 Pixar Shorts - links to where to watch or buy as well as information on each one

Please let me know if a link is broken and I will fix it.
