Picture this…you decide to show a movie/video that relates to what you have been teaching in the classroom. The topic is definitely relevant for what you have been teaching, but in walks an administrator to do an informal evaluation. What do you do?
In my classroom, I give students something to complete as they watch the movie. This does a few things: 1) It sets a purpose for watching the movie/video. 2) It requires them to be actively involved while viewing the video. 3) Administrators are impressed that students are actually working on something as they view the film.
This product will make things easy for you. Prior to showing a film in your classroom, select 1 of the 5 movie responses that you would like your students to as they watch the video.
Here's what is included:
*Movie Response #1: A 3-2-1 Chart (perfect for nonfiction but could be used for fiction as well)
*Movie Response #2: You're a Reporter (great for nonfiction or fiction)
*Movie Response #3: I Want to Know It All! (suitable for fiction)
*Movie Response #4: You're a Casting Director (perfect for fiction)
*Movie Response #5 A Storyboard (perfect for fiction or historical events)
This packet is perfect for language arts but the nonfiction forms will work great in a history, science, or health class.
