Why not teach common core standards for English Language Arts using Pixar short films, Ted Talks, popular film clips for students and other inspirational video clips for students? For example, have students practice CCSS.RL.1: Instuct students to watch the Inside Out Video Clip. Ask students to “Describe how the author used indirect and direct characterization to share each character’s personality.” For an entire year of highly engaging, no prep lesson plans and student activities, download my Grade 3 – 5, Grade 6 – 8, or Grade 9 – 12 reading with short films bundle. In addition to using pixar films to teach inferencing, summary, theme, characterization, conflict, allusion, figurative language and more, these bundles also come with educational videos to completely replace traditional mini-lessons and lectures. Sit back, relax and enjoy as you effortlessly engage students in academically rigorous, culturally relevant ELA activities.
