Wow!!! This is awesome!! I am soooo excited to reintroduce persuasive reviews to my class this week! Ironically, we went to see African Cats last week (Friday) and since our NYS testing began this week, I had to put the movie in the back of our minds. We discussed the movie, but did nothing else with it due to the time restraints involving our testing. I am so grateful that you reminded me how important it is to allow the students to use what they know in the world as well, not just in the classroom. Write a movie review about African Cats.....of course!! Thank you again for the great idea! My kids are going to rejoice when they hear they will get a chance to write reviews again this week.
