PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Whether the movie is an integral part of your curriculum or a lesson plan for your sub (so you can attend that important Common Core Seminar), our activity has you covered. It will push your students to think, and if they are like our students, they will never sit back and watch a movie passively again. They will take notes while they watch the movie on our activity handout and when the movie is over, they will craft a sentence or two which “sells the movie.” Once they have written their loglines, students can vote as to who wrote the logline that makes the movie impossible to miss.

A great way to teach your students how to write a clear, concise, engaging sentence, an invaluable skill that should translate to bigger writing assignments like essays and research reports. The activity also works great to enhance student understanding of short stories and novels.

This self-contained activity works for any film and is suitable for substitute teachers, homeschoolers, or any subject teacher who wants to enhance the educational value of movies.

It is one component of our Common Core Movie Unit.

This activity includes:
A lesson plan
An activity handout
An activity worksheet
A grading rubric
