Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

To set the context of the lesson I will ask students if they have watched any films recently or read any books recently and ask them to tell me about them briefly. With what has happened due to the current pandemic people would have had more time to watch films or read books, I feel this will be a a fruitful conversation. We will discuss this together as a class.

Text Analysis (10-12 minutes) • To identify different sections of the review and identify the appropriacy of the language

I will share with students my own film review that I have produced. I will read through it with them and elicit from them what they think the aim of each paragraph is. We will then cover the level of appropriacy of that language which is used throughout the film review. We will complete this together as a class and have short group discussions.

Writing Their Own Review (15-17 minutes) • For students to produce a review of a book/film

I will give students an allotted time to produce their own review using the review they have already seen as a template. Students should try to follow the template of my review as best as they can.

Feedback (8-10 minutes) • To allow students to give each other feedback by using a checklist

I will provide students with a checklist of attributes that their review should contain. I will send students into breakout rooms where they will peer review each others work by using the checklist.
