During statewide testing, the end of the year, right before breaks or even as a supplement/reinforcement to your literature common core this is a great activity to do with your students.
Students use popular movies to discuss character traits, theme, plot, types of characters and thought provoking questions.
They create a booklet (which can be used as a study guide) and other interactives. These items can all be placed in interactive notebooks.
There are activities for elementary and middle school included.
