Brave Writer Goes to the Movies
Movies: your ally in language arts education
Do you find yourself wondering how to make movie-viewing more relevant and valuable to your children? Would you like some help spotting the plot structure, identifying foreshadowing, making the most of character development and setting?
The Brave Writer movie guide helps you to comment meaningfully on plot, characterization, make-up and costumes, acting, setting and even film editing. This eleven page guide gives you the background and series of questions to help your kids discuss movies on a deeper level, rather than the usual “It was really good…” responses they usually offer. As your children learn to talk well about movies, these skills naturally help them to discuss literature.
Brave Writer offers a list of family friendly movies to choose from here on the website:
