My Left Foot Studying a key scene model notes

To accompany my resource - My Left Foot studying a key scene - this is a completed booklet with model examples of analysis for each bullet point. I get pupils to complete their own notes first, collate their ideas on the projector, then issue this booklet with examples of how they could develop their observations into written analysis. It's been a great resource for helping pupils to write essays about a key scene in the film.
