Movies as Literature teaches the ability to critique movies-- just like literature! This course helps students understand the elements of good story-telling, identify and respond to messages, and understand techniques used to emotionally engage people as we watch or read.
The movies included in this course were chosen based on two primary criteria: they had to be well written in terms of literary elements (with most based on novels or plays) and they had to be filmed effectively and use various film techniques. Seventeen movies are covered: Shane, Friendly Persuasion, The Quiet Man, Arsenic and Old Lace, The Music Man, ET The Extra-Terrestrial, The Maltese Falcon, Rear Window, Emma, The Philadelphia Story, The Journey of August King, To Kill a Mockingbird, A Raisin in the Sun, Raiders of the Lost Art, Henry V, A Man for all Seasons, and Chariots of Fire. The specific versions listed in the book are required.
Each lesson contains three questions for compositions; this book will help students learn the standard writing process of prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing. Discussion guide questions help students learn about the analysis of literary elements and any unfamiliar vocabulary. Students will learn to make inferences, draw conclusions, and identify and interpret figurative language and symbolism as they study character, plot, theme, and film/literary techniques.
Students read the first page of the lesson for background information and notes of what to look for. Then they watch the movie without interruption. Afterwards, they look over the discussion questions, watch the movie again to answer the questions, discuss answers with the teachers, and review portions with the teacher as needed, and go over portions of the movie to find supporting details for compositions. Activities for extended study are also included.
The teacher's guide section in this book includes answers to the discussion questions along with information meant to spur discussion or provided additional insight.
Approximately 10-12 days to complete each lesson. Final exam included.
335 pages, softcover, with glossary. Student book portions and glossary are reproducible for student use. Use as a one-year high school course or supplement to grades 7 to 12 English. First six movies can be used for grades 7-8; the others are more appropriate for grades 9-12. Scripture taken from the NIV.
