Description

Eighth Grade Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (R - 2018) challenges students to take a deeper look at self-confidence in this awkward yet accurate story of eighth grade. Ask students to compare their experience to Kayla's and rate how accurately this film portrays the 8th grade experience. Explore how the director uses music to convey meaning to the viewer and also how Kayla's online videos shed light on her character development.

Note: Check out IMDb's parents guide to make sure this movie is suitable for your students. This movie is rated R mainly for the use of the f-word. Below are the instances of its use if you want to skip over them throughout the movie without affecting the plot. (these are noted on the movie guide as well)

General Tips for Using this Movie Guide:

  1. Print one, double-sided movie guide for each student
  2. Preview the next question on the movie guide as you complete each one, this can help students pay attention to important upcoming events.
  3. Pause at the times designated on the movie guide, encourage students to debate, discuss and talk about their ideas before writing their answers.
  4. Discourage students from simply copying answers.
  5. Randomly choose a student to share their answer and defend it if necessary.
  6. If time allows, feel free to rewind and show important parts of the movie again for additional analysis.
  7. After completing the short answers, allow 5-10 minutes for each essay question at the end of the film.
  8. On average, this movie guide will require about 45-60 minutes in addition to the length of the movie.

Digital Version Tips

  • It is intended for a paperless, 1:1 tablet/iPad classroom
  • Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don't already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
  • Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with students.
  • When complete, ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)
