One of my favorite classes I ever taught was film appreciation to Middle Schoolers. This is my introduction lesson that I created to help them see the different parts of the movie, rather than just watching movies and wasting time (which they thought they were going to do!). I mention clips in the lesson that I got off of You Tube. The students participate in the lecture and fill in the blanks on the student copy. I have included the teacher copy with the activities and clips to show in italics, and the student copy with the blanks to fill in.
