8 thoughts on “Chill on Movie Talk”

  1. I agree that embedded readings are an excellent addition to working with movies. Recently I showed a group of students a scene from Fried Greeen Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café and then read with them the same scene from the book. We compared, talked about all the changes that had been made and why. It was a very interesting discussion. I’m definitely going to do more book/movie comparisons in the future.

    1. Judy, I have shown “Jean de Florette” for the past twenty years at the end of French 4. I recently purchased both books “Jean de Florette” and “Manon des Sources” – even some dialog in the book is used in the movie. I moved JDF down to level 3, so I could do “Manon” with level 4. It has led to some interesting conversations concerning the virtues, flaws, and traits of the characters and how they demonstrated the virtue, etc. but I had not thought of talking about the changes to the story. Excellent!

  2. In my private tutoring I often use “The Arrival”, a graphic novel with no words, at the beginning when I’m not too sure what the level is. We talk about the pictures and I can adapt to where they’re at. I think this video with no words could be used the same way.

  3. I am sure that most have seen the “Simon’s cat” videos, right? (Just google “simon`s cat” There are many of them. Dennis Gallagher shared them with us during out coaching session a few weeks ago…. I have used them with pretty good success/interest…

    I appreciate the recommendations.
