I plan to use this for my 8th grade class. I made a few changes, however. I created a character chart for them to fill in as they watch the movie to make sure that they are paying attention. I also scraped the plot diagram to make sure that the lesson could fit into a 90 minute block. Overall, I think it is a great lesson with a few minor changes. I really appreciate the critique tips!
