This is a film project inspired by Thornton Wilder’s Our Town and should be assigned at the completion of the unit. The students will take Wilder’s message about appreciating the beauty of the world around us and make a short film that chronicles what they think is beautiful in the world. The students will also use part of a sermon written by my pastor in the town where I attended college as further inspiration. Then, using this excerpt from his sermon, the students will write their own paragraph about beauty that they will read in their video. This is a great way to blend creativity, technology, critical thinking, and classic literature all into one assignment! I am also selling other Our Town related assignments, including discussion questions/study guide questions, other fun activities with creative writing, and two prompts and instructions for a major grade literary analysis paper.
