A genre study of movie reviews is a versatile and exciting unit. It works well on its own or as part of a larger unit on nonfiction or persuasive writing. Students appreciate studying "real world" writing and like to express their opinions.
This file describes the process of introducing the genre and helping students as they discover the characteristics of the genre. It also includes an assignment for writing an original movie review, peer editing, an online resource page, and more. To give a better sense of what is available in the movie review resources, the Table of Contents is provided in the preview file.
Best of luck, and feel free to contact me at any time with questions.
Authors and sources of movie reviews are credited on the pages where they appear.
