Students will be asked to watch a classic children's movie each week. There will be occasional viewing guides, worksheets, or coloring sheets to supplement the class.
Students will be asked to watch the movie-of-the-week at home before class. Each movie will be available on various streaming sites or found on DVD at a local library.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Each movie will be family-friendly in content (rated G or PG). But, there may be occasional tense moments or serious themes. Parents are encouraged to check out each movie through Common Sense Media or IMDB to be sure they agree that the movie is appropriate for their learner.
