Today in class (level 2) we watched this silent film.
Where is it filmed? Who are the characters? What happens : how does it start? what happens in the middle of the film? how does it end? Does the film have a message, meaning or lesson to teach us? Did you enjoy it or didn't you like it - why?
Exercise 1 : Ask yourself these questions as you watch the film again. Can you answer the questions?
Download the Silent Film Reading worksheet to see Dale's notes.
Exercise 2 : Here is a link to many other short, silent films on YouTube.
Use the worksheet to take notes on another silent film. Use Dale's notes as a model.
Bring your notes to class to share and show your teacher. We will write a review together.
