This is an activity that may be used in conjunction with viewing Diary of a Wimpy Kid. There are questions from the film, as well as three extended response prompts.
Personal Experience: I first used this activity last year with my 6th grade homeroom class. My students really enjoyed the concept of "Media Minutes" and expressed that having only 7 questions allowed them to focus on the message in the film, rather than making sure they could answer an abundance of questions. Also, they found the extended response enjoyable as they related to the film. For students who generally hate writing, I was thrilled to receive so many passionate extended responses.
If you like this resource, please rate and comment. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact me. Thanks!:)
