Even if you don't teach a film or film and literature class, this is a cool assignment because students will learn how to talk more intelligently about films. However, if you do teach a film class or are trying to get the powers that be to approve one, this is your model for how student presentations should go.
These presentations were fun and entertaining, but they were also informative and educational. As a bonus, the kids are the ones teaching and interacting in a positive way. You just need to make sure they can discuss the vocabulary (and Educabana has a perfect assignment for that, too).
This download includes the assignment, which provides an outline for a 10-15 slide (27 or 44-point) Google Presentation or PowerPoint.You can check them off or have a points system. The presentations can be done solo or in groups of two, and the assignment reflects the difference. You also get links to some student samples, as well as my own semi-samples created before I added several requirements (but used to present top movies), and a fun Google Slides presentation of AFI's top 65 movies of all time (it's a photo for each, and as far as I got).
I include a vocabulary list of common movie terms for students to use. Definitions and video examples are in my Film Vocabulary lesson in the Educabana store.
Great for homeshool moms or college professors, too. Add a few more slides to up the rigor, or take a few away and use it in middle school.
