Made With You in Mind
Students will experiment with skills that are crucial to essay writing and academic exploration. They'll learn to
- Articulate a position (think thesis statements!)
- Communicate their findings
- Use concrete examples and evidence in support
- Find deeper meanings and make connections to other perspectives
- Make persuasive choices in light of their intended audience
- Develop their writing processes and habits
Don’t tell your kids—while they explore and share and geek out with their new friends in class, they also gain transferable thinking skills and grow their writing proficiency! (I know! 🤯)
How it works
Each club lasts one month. We watch one movie per week.
Students dissect each movie with other fans in our online classroom.
Our coach leads specific discussions to
- explore character
- uncover themes
- analyze plot points
- examine cinematic technology and art
Students discover fun new movies and appreciate old favorites. You watch them compose, explore, research, and engage in critical thinking. What’s not to love?
