Close reading strategies applied to a short film. Teaching with short films is a great way to engage struggling readers and English language learners, giving them a scaffold that enables them to actively participate in discussions with peers about literary terms. Each film/ lesson comes with: plot maps, essential questions, writing, and discussion prompts. They can be used with a single question as a quick warm-up activity, or as an in-depth study of literary devices using the writing prompts. This lesson using "La Luna" focuses on characterization, dynamic/static characters, problem/solution, conflict, and theme. These four (ish) minute films and lessons work well as a hook that gives students something to connect to during a more in-depth lesson on a literary device within a complex text. The videos are not included, but most can be found on the internet.
