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!

Product Includes:

--- 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.

This is also a wonderful distance learning assignment! Children can watch their movies at home and work with partners and teachers online to complete the project.

Your students will beg you to repeat this lesson!
