What educators are saying

I didn't use this with A Wonderful Life -- and that was the best thing about it! :-) Love a flexible resource that can be adapted to a variety of texts/themes. Thank you!


It's a Wonderful Life is a classic film that can keep you sane in the last few days before break when your students need a bit of holiday fun.

But showing a movie right before break can have its pitfalls. Holiday-crazed students sometimes have trouble focusing! That's the beauty of this one-pager activity. This simple guided sketchnote activity will help students focus on the film as a text.

The instructions will guide your students in searching for key takeways from Frank Capra's film, like themes, important quotations, the growth of the protagonist, and more. The templates will help keep even art-haters from getting intimidated by how to fill the page.

Find out why thousands of teachers have already fallen in love with one-pagers for keeping students focused, creative, and engaged.
