Product Description
This 5 page movie guide accompanies the movie "The Soloist" starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr. This movie is based on the true story of Nathaniel Ayers, a musician who developed schizophrenia and became homeless and his encounter with a journalist from the L.A Times who wants to write a story about him.

This has two parts to it.

PART 1 consists of 6 questions all on the subject of homelessness. The students get 20 minutes to complete this part, then discuss together as a class. The idea is that the students become familiar with everyone else's ideas and opinions on homeless people and mental illness. Includes answers

PART 2 consists of 27 comprehension questions to be answered after the movie. Students are required to make notes to help complete this part. Includes answers

● Additional to add: Ask the students what they believe the motives are of the creators of a movie about homelessness (especially a true story) get them to write a bullet point list. (can be done at the beginning or end of the movie)

How can movies help students learn English?

Learning from movies is motivating and enjoyable
- Sometimes students need a change in style, and movies are generally an integral
part of a student's life.

Movies provides authentic and varied language
- It's always a good idea to introduce students examples of English in real
situations. This includes accents different to your own.

Movies gives a visual context
- This gives the student the ability to interpret the language in full visual context.
To see such visual supports as facial expressions and gestures simultaneously.

Variety and flexibility
- Movies can also act as a springboard for follow-up tasks such as discussions,
debates on social issues, role plays, reconstructing a dialogue or summarising.

As always, an answer sheet is included
