This Movie Review Template was created for my students to use with any movie that we watched during the school year. It enabled them to focus their attention on South Carolina 7th Grade teaching standards for ELA. I used it as a graphic organizer to prepare their thoughts and ideas in order to write their multi-paragraph essay.
