    Very good resource. Liked the selection and the discussion questions. All the information was helpful. The only thing that would have made it better is if it had questions students had to answer as they watched the movie to make sure they were paying attention similar to reading comprehension questions as read each chapter in a novel.

    Very good and enjoyable literature curriculum! My 14 year old daughter loves to read, but last summer discovered movies for entertainment. This combines both fun and learning. It is not an easy curriculum, definitely use for high school or advanced junior high students. Our only complaint: for the last movie the questions seemed a bit repetitive. My daughter complained occasionally about the movie selection, but she always was glad to have seen and studied it by the time we finished with it. By the way, the author did an excellent job with the selection: historical, classic, and some modern. The author suggests using two weeks per movie for discussion and essay questions. We rarely needed that much time. Extended studies get you into the actual written works. This is where the two weeks might become necessary.This is a challenging and unique way to study literature. I highly recommend it.
