Movies as Literature - Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist was a great story for next student led session. There are several moral dilemmas in Oliver Twist that our student was able to highlight. He did a great job leading us! The students discussed issues like "Why would someone stay in an abusive situation?" "How did one person's actions affect another's life" and the messages that Dicken's was telling us through Oliver Twist. 
Here are the questions, including the link to the movie on You-tube.

Movies as Literature - To Kill a Mockingbird

We had a great session of discussion after watching To Kill a Mockingbird. This is such an amazing book and movie and there was much to discuss. This is such an engaging story, I don't think that our students really noticed it was not in colour

I suggested that the students might also want to watch Harper Lee's biography called Hey Boo. It was available through Hoopla and our local library, so it might be available through yours too ;)

I led this session and here are the questions for To Kill a Mockingbird.

Movies as Literature - Pendragon

Here are the questions by one of our students for leading the movie Pendragon: Sword of His Father. Our student did lots of research about this movie - his questions are very well done!
