Built around a moving short film about second chances and tough choices, this lesson mixes grammar, prediction, and narrative writing. Pupils practice with adjectives and prefixes before moving on to the film. The resource directs you to pause the film at specific points to ask the provided questions. Small groups choose a character and write the narrative from that person's point of view.
- While students will be working in groups and able to help one another, you may want to provide additional scaffolding for the writing assignment
- A great plan for sharpening prediction and collaboration skills
- The film is really nicely done, despite being a bit sad
