PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Word document is a summary of the plot of the PG rated movie School of Rock in "fill in the blanks" format.

I have divided the film into six parts. Each part is 15 - 20 minutes long.
1. Dewey needs a job
2. Class Project
3. Rock Band
4. The Audition / Field Trip
5. Parents' Night
6. Battle of the Bands

After viewing each part, students complete the cloze test. In this way, I'm ensuring that they understand the plot. A word bank to assist students is included at the end of each section.

This method works well with students of all abilities, but especially those who might find some elements of the movie difficult to understand. It provides scaffolding for students who are unable (or find it difficult) to write their own summaries of plot events.

This is also a good way to revise the film. Getting students to complete the cloze test is quicker than re-showing the movie.

Students enjoy this activity and many see it as fun. At the same time, it is an active learning task that makes them work.

The 4 page solution is also included (9 pages in total).

Download the preview file to see the cloze test for Part 1. Even if you don't purchase this product, it will give you a useful activity with which to begin your study of School of Rock.
