Film Reviews

Writing film reviews is a great skill for all students. Since our students love films and love giving their opinion, we have a relevant activity that engages students.

The overall composition of a review can be modeled after a good essay format – introduction, conclusion, and support.

I also encourage students to read other critics and to quote critics with whom they strongly agree or disagree.

We have used blogs to publish our critiques – you can see our first venture here:
