I asked the class to recall the traditional tale of Sleeping Beauty. I shared the key words. Children worked in pairs to read the story. Three versions to match reading abilities. After reading and discussing the story, they identified the key words by highlighting.
a comprehensive unit of study via powerpoint for first and second year secondary school pupils.
Includes focus on: genre, conventions, plot, Walt Disney research, discussion tasks, analysis of film, youtube links to documentary, characterisation, themes, music, setting and symbolism.
My class LOVED doing this and wrote brilliant film evaluations afterwards.
