    Thankul for this interesting alternative to a traditional literature curriculum

    My sophomore son loves acting, theatre, and film, so this curriculum immediately caught my eye. Thus far, it has been a wonderful opportunity for him to improve his observational and critical analysis skills while enjoying classic films we might not otherwise have thought to seek out. The whole family has enjoyed watching these films with him and adding to the discussion.

    Using this text with my 9th and 12 grade students. Good change of pace for us. Really causes them to use analytical thinking skills. I like the wide variety of movie selections and then I added a few more just for fun. Great family and learning time if your student does not have time or has difficulty with reading.

    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.
