All teachers know the value of a good movie day! Now there's a lesson to go with it.
Teach your students the skills they need to analyze a film and write a quality review. In this lesson, students will assess a published review, view a film, and write their own review to share. Designed to help students meet reading, writing and viewing standards at once!
--- 12 slide presentation with age-appropriate graphics for older students
-- 2 page lesson plan with standards and differentiation for ELL and Gifted students
-- 4 colorful student printables
-- Answer key and student-friendly rubrics
The options for this lesson are endless. Show a film that connects to a novel theme (ex: “The Giver” and “The Truman Show”). Give a movie day as a reward and the review as a follow up. Take a movie fieldtrip or show a film version of a novel you read in class.
Your students will beg you to repeat this lesson!
