Despereaux, El Pequeño Gran Héroe Post #2
Following the Embedded Reading the class watched the “trailer” for the film:
The clip was shown, without sound, using a “Movie Talk” format to narrate and discuss the scenes. The Embedded Reading provided the group with a great base to begin to discuss the clips and to predict what might happen in the movie.
The students then chose one version of the Embedded Reading to re-read before watching longer clips of the film.
In groups the students examined the following list of qualities and determined the English equivilents. (this was primarily review and recognition of cognates)
Each student created a list of the top 5 qualities s/he believed were necessary for being a hero.
