Movie Wednesday!


  • ELAGSE9-10SL2 Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source.

Learning Target:

Opening Session: Check in, make popcorn, collect last minute permission forms, and get your talking out of the way now…

Work Session: Today we are watching Alien! This movie was made in 1979 and is one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. As you watch, keep in mind the concepts of monsters we have discussed in class – specifically, what defines a monster and why monsters scare us. You’ll be using Alien  in class tomorrow and Friday to work on an argumentative essay about The Metamorphosis.

Enjoy the show!

Closing Session: TOTD – movie debrief

Assessment: Formative checks for understanding during movie

Differentiation: Modified writing assignment as needed.
