This movie guide is for the movie "Where the Wild Things Are"
Watch the movie then give the worksheet to the students. Ideally get the students to write notes about import events in the movie to help with the questions later. Includes 21 questions.
The final part of the worksheet is for the students to imagine they are a 'Wild Thing' then to describe and draw themselves as their 'Wild Thing'.
This could also be used as a continuation for classes who have been reading the book prior to watching the movie. A tool for comparisons.
How can movies help students learn English?
Learning from movies is motivating and enjoyable
- Sometimes students need a change in style, and movies are generally an integral
part of a student's life.
Movies provides authentic and varied language
- It's always a good idea to introduce students examples of English in real
situations. This includes accents different to your own.
Movies gives a visual context
- This gives the student the ability to interpret the language in full visual context.
To see such visual supports as facial expressions and gestures simultaneously.
Variety and flexibility
- Movies can also act as a springboard for follow-up tasks such as discussions,
debates on social issues, role plays, reconstructing a dialogue or summarising.
