Movies As Literature
If your teen is looking for a complete, painless, one-year high school literary analysis course using 17 classic movies, as opposed to text, then Movies as Literature is it. As in standard literature courses, Movies as Literature covers topics of plot development, theme, foreshadowing, setting, mood, character development, point of view, motivation, and more. And then, because it is about film, Movies as Literature also addresses ideas such as staging and dramatic effects. Instead of watching a movie for entertainment value only, your teen will begin to discern the underlying worldview that the producer is promoting.
Highly adaptable, Honors level teens tackle extra activities while teens with special needs can respond to questions orally.
Containing both student and teacher material, Movies as Literature includes discussion and composition questions for each of the 17 movies, an extensive teacher’s guide/answer key, plot summaries, a glossary of literary terms, a final exam, guidelines for writing and evaluating an essay and much more. It does NOT contain the required classical movies. A DVD or streaming option will work best, as each alternative will allow your teen to rewind and search for particular scenes for supporting details to use in their essays. The thought-provoking Movies as Literature is highly recommended and reproducible for family use.
