Movie vs Real Life
For this task I have broken down the assignment into different parts. Hand each section up separately into Seqta assessments.
Part One : Plot and Timelines
Part Two : Character - Biography
Part Three : Comparative Discussion
Once you have decided on a movie enter your name and the name of the movie on the Padlet below. To do this you just need to click on the image and enter the details (or click the + sign in the bottom right hand corner ) . Once I approve the post you will be able to see what other people in the class are watching.
Part One : Timeline
Once you have watched the video created a time line of the key events in the movie. If dates aren't mentioned you can construct the timeline with terms such as 'the next day'. 'approx a week later' etc depending on the film. You may also choose to use a site such as IMDb to get a plot summary which will help you construct the timeline
Below is a copy of the rubric in Seqta to show you what needs to be included in the timeline.
Below is an example of a timeline for the movie Schindlers List
