Movies As Literature eBook This complete, one-year high school English course uses classic movies on video/DVD to introduce and study the elements of literary analysis. The student portion of this book contains discussion and composition questions for each of the 17 lessons, several of which can also be used to supplement studies in grades 7 and 8. This portion may be photocopied by the purchaser for personal family use or the student workbook may be purchased separately for convenience. This volume also contains an extensive teacher’s guide/answer key with ideas to help in directing students' thinking and suggestions for evaluating the content in their compositions. Also included are plot summaries, a glossary of literary terms, a final exam, and guidelines for writing and evaluating an essay. This course will not only give students the tools to appreciate good books more fully, but will also equip them with the ability to discern underlying messages in movies rather than simply absorb them.
