Were you stumped by CCS 7.7? I know I was. Tall Tale is a way to show students how lighting and music impact a story line.
Students will also follow the theme of "Heroes" throughout the film, as they encounter the various Tall Tale characters and decide which of the characters have "hero" traits.
Worksheet focuses on plot, setting,conflict. There is a touch of hyperbole, mood and a compare/contrast between movie and text characters.
This is one of several movie guides created for reinforcing reading and language arts skills in the classroom.
Preview worksheet with students before viewing the movie for best results. You may have to periodically stop the film to allow them to record their responses.
