Thema: Film USA

You have to convince the rest of the world that the movie on the USA you have watched is the best movie on earth. Furthermore, you have the chance to ask detailed questions on a movie somebody else has watched. This is what’s going to happen:


  1. Choose a movie from the list that you want to focus on. If you want to pick a different film on the USA contact your teacher. Add your title to the list in the classroom.
  2. Optional: One opponent each will be drawn (extra sheet)
  3. Optional: Get detailed information on your opponent’s movie (plot, cinematic technique, general background info, etc.)
  4. Prepare yourself for the battle. Fill in the portfolio sheet (extra sheet). Think about questions you might be asked on your own film and answers you might want to give.

ROUND 2 (about 1- 2 months later; if possible, record the battles)

  1. Bring a copy of the cover of your movie as well as your portfolio to class.
  2. Get together in groups of 4 (TEAM A = combatants and TEAM B = jurors)
    1. TEAM A: You’ve got 4 minutes each to ask your opponent questions on his/her movie. Ask back, demand details/explanations, etc.
      TEAM B: Keep the time and evaluate the dialogues using the evaluation sheet (extra sheet); one juror is only responsible for one combatant.
    2. TEAM A: You’ve got 2 minutes each to convince the other person to watch the movie.
      TEAM B: Keep the time and evaluate the monologues using the evaluation sheet (extra sheet); one juror is only responsible for one combatant.
    3. Jurors give oral feedback using the professional phrases and hand over evaluation sheets. All the others add aspects, each combatant reacts to his/her feedback using the professional phrases)
    4. Change roles within the teams.


  1. You have to turn in your Portfolio
  2. You can choose between one (!) of the following creative tasks:
    1. Create a film poster advertising your movie. Include visual as well as verbal elements.
    2. Create a videoblog: Post an interior monologue of one of the characters (choose a scene and record your thoughts).
    3. Compose a song/ write a poem on your book and record it.
    4. Shoot a trailer for your book.
    5. Over to you…
  3. You will be observed in your battle
