Hey, how do I download it?
This is a warmer, and there is nothing to download. It's just an idea for your lesson, not a worksheet.
After watching a movie, take time the day after to introduce the concept of summarizing, which is actually a fairly complex skill. After the movie has been viewed, the teacher can ask, “How long is Erin Brockovich?” Students will answer about ninety minutes. “If your friend asked you to tell him about the movie, would you take ninety minutes to do it?” After getting a negative response, the teacher can go over the essentials of a summary: the main ideas, without the details, in correct order with transitions, told in the student’s own words. The class may begin the summary together on the board and finish it as homework. Also for homework, students should write a critical review of the movie, rating it in number of stars from one for poor to four for excellent. They need to provide a rationale for their rating, and the teacher can go over some of the basis for rating a movie: the acting, the script, the sets, etc. This is an enjoyable way to get students to both abstract and evaluate material.
