This all-inclusive, year-round, infinitely reusable curriculum contains worksheets, informational handouts, vocabulary and corresponding definitions, and sing-along/fill-in-the-blank sheets for over a hundred classic films ranging from comedy to drama to musical to film noir.
Designed for utilization in any high school (year-round, court, community, comprehensive, public, private) or home schooled students grades 9 through 12, this entire course is completely adaptable and can be modified to fit any teacher in any environment.
For each of the films featured, there is a pre-viewing handout to be gone over as a class or individually before the film viewing. It contains the names of the major characters, a list of the vocabulary words in the film with corresponding definitions, and an essay prompt (either a summary or a specific essay on a theme or topic within the film). There is also a review sheet for students to fill out while/after viewing which prompts them to look for antagonists and protagonists, conflicts, and morals within the film.
Even though all films are appropriate for high school age viewing, the curriculum can be modified for younger audiences if you stick with the musicals and comedies.
