Project includes a 50-question movie-comprehension packet that students can fill out while viewing the movie or directly after each day's viewing section. There is also a homework assignment that goes along with each day's viewing of the film. Days #1-3 ask students to write journal entries like John Dunbar pretending that they are him (as the character writes journal entries). Day #4's homework assignment requires the student to write a 5-paragraph argumentative essay about whether or not they would have stayed with the tribe or left the tribe if they had been John Dunbar. The final project requires students to choose another character from the film and create a journal from their point of view and an essay from that character's point of view. Common Core-aligned, easily adaptable, and great for students that like to express themselves through art as well as writing. (Remember your own school's guidelines for showing films as the film is rated PG-13).
