Teaching With Movies is a unique resource for any classroom teacher who wants to explore relevant themes through movies, using a multiple intelligences approach. The activities provide an insight and context to each movie and are designed to integrate skills across all areas of the curriculum. Many of the activities lend themselves to group work. The two movies explored in this book were chosen for their relevance and popularity among students. Each unit contains pre- and post-viewing tasks, extension ideas, research activities and opportunities to develop creative processes. Many of the activities, particularly those in the general section, can be used as homework activities or for independent study.
