PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I use this chart to teach my students to think analytically while watching a movie. It's easy for students to become passive viewers, but this graphic organizer combats this tendency. You can use this for short film clips or the entire film. This handout forces students to think and write about what they see.

Directions:

⟶ In the far left column, tell students they should construct titles for clips that strike them.

⟶ In the middle (observation) column, they should jot down what jumps out at them during a scene (setting, character action, etc.).

⟶ In the far right column (interpretation), they should discuss WHY they were struck by the clip they identified. This is where they have to think and reflect.

⟶ Use the final question on the back to force students to elaborate even more, or replace it with another question. In the past, I have had students compare the film to the text here (if we watched a movie version of a book).
