Around the World With Mrs C


Are you looking for an engaging READY TO GO project based learning project to use in your high school ELA classroom? Draw your students into PBL learning by having them complete this highly engaging and rigorous sales pitch. Everything is ready for you to implement and your students will get the benefit of seeing how they can use the skills you have taught them in a real world scenario.

Students are asked to step into the role of how a Disney movie idea is generated and put into motion. Student groups are tasked with identifying a culture that has either never been represented or never been represented well by Disney to make a movie sales pitch to Disney executives. They then research the culture; create a movie idea that reflects the culture; researches marketing demographics; create a storyboard, movie trailer, and movie poster; and present their sales pitch.

⭐ In this project, students utilize narrative, research, speaking, and persuasive skills. This has always by a favorite of my high school students as it is both creative and shows them what it is like to use all the skills they have been learning in a real world scenario.

✅ Included with this product:

PDF Presentation that introduces the overall project to students

PDF handouts of:

  • student job rolls
  • tips for a successful sales pitch
  • movie proposal form
  • project manager update forms
  • personal reflection handouts for each student
