3. Filming a page of The Hobbit. Students opened up their books to page 17. After I read aloud the page, they worked with their partners to decide how they would want to film that scene in order to get the correct tone across. They storyboarded 4-6 shots of their scene.

4. We watched this scene in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. As students watched, they mentioned all the film techniques they saw. Click here to watch the scene. 

5. Film comparisons. Students viewed two different versions of an adaptation of Charles Dickens’s novel Great Expectations. Here are the two scenes:

4B

1. Freewrite.

2. Brief share-out about Hobbit film reviews.

3. Practice finding evidence for your assertion. Students worked in pairs to solve a puzzle that required them to match assertions with evidence from The Hobbit.

4. ACE-IT practice. Students received feedback on their last ACE-IT paragraphs and then tried another paragraph. But first we looked at a successful paragraph from last class:

Bilbo Baggins begins to enjoy violence after his initial success killing a spider. When Bilbo fights the spiders, he is scaring them off with his Sting. Tolkien writes that “Bilbo was dancing about and waving his Sting” (163). By saying Bilbo is “dancing” it gives off the impression of having fun as he scares them because dancing is used with happy, upbeat feelings the majority of the time. It is important to understand how Bilbo has changed because he used to be very uptight with his decisions and now he has become very brave and enjoys the feats he has accomplished.

Next, students were asked to write a paragraph using the support and evidence from the puzzle piece of their choice. This took about 10-15 minutes. Students turned in their paragraphs for a grade.

5. ACE-IT notes. Students received this handout that gives an overview of the structures of paragraph writing: ACEIT

6. Filming a page of The Hobbit. Students opened up their books to page 17. After I read aloud the page, they worked with their partners to decide how they would want to film that scene in order to get the correct tone across. They storyboarded 4-6 shots of their scene.
