Publisher Description:

Movie makers have discovered that a popular children’s book can be excellent source material for a blockbuster motion picture. (Thank you, J.K. Rowling!) Take advantage of this trend by using recently released movies as a “hook” to spark students’ interest in content connections. Discovering the civics, personal finance, and economics concepts in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is beneficial in creating thought-provoking lessons; noting the relevant social commentary in The Hunger Games is enlightening and applicable to present day events; many struggling readers readily identifying with Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson character who is dyslexic; and many others.

From the Big Screen to the Classroom 6th+ contains nine popular book/movie titles and features interactive lessons and activities that will challenge and engage students in content area investigation, skill application, and creative problem solving.

Category Description for From the Big Screen to Classroom!:

Moviemakers have known for years that basing a movie on a popular piece of literature is a good idea. The book’s title has name recognition and there is a built-in fan base. In recent years children’s literature has become a major focus in the motion picture industry. Educators understand that a popular movie will renew interest in a book. While we appreciate the movie industry for their creativity and sometimes applaud their choice of material, it is to be noted that the lessons in this book do not reference the movies. Movies are the catalyst; yet, the books themselves are the center of attention.

Each book contains popular book/movie titles and features interactive lessons and activities that will challenge and engage students in content area investigation, skill application, and creative problem solving. Each of the lessons are stand-alone and demand little introduction or follow-up. These were written with the resource teacher in mind.

The lessons in these books will be especially useful to:

  • English as a Second Language Teachers
  • Gifted Resource Specialists
  • Library Media Specialists
  • Reading Teachers
  • Science and Social Studies Teachers
  • Substitute Teacher & After-school Program Providers

“Never judge a book by its movie.” J.W. Eagan ~Amber
