Design A Study Movies As Literature Student Workbook

Movies often have resounding messages just as literature does; themes of right and wrong, ethics, moral dilemmas, coming of age, plot development and irony are just a few of their common traits. Each chapter begins with information on the film, its background and things to watch for before delving into detailed, multi-layered discussion questions. Students will use thinking skills as they sort out character's actions and intentions throughout the movies. Composition questions and activities for further studies allow you to expand your movie watching experience into as detailed an adventure as you wish! 191 pages, softcover with glossary. 17 movies covered.

We used this book when my son was in the ninth grade. The same son is now in a four year university majoring in film. He has found that many of the assignments in his Film Theory class are much like the assignments in this book. He learned a lot and enjoyed the book. I also have used this book with my 2 daughters and plan on using it again in the future for my other son.

This is a great tool for teaching those who do not like to read or those with learning disabilities who are not good readers. Teaches the concepts normally taught with literature. As the parent/teacher, I enjoyed analyzing films as much as they did.

We are into our 3rd movie selection and we really like this. It makes them think about what they watch, and they can go as light or deep as they are able (or not) with the critical thinking/analytical questions. They do all the questions on the first week and write a short essay on the second week. All in all I think this is very well done. It's a nice change.
