Reflection: Self-Talk Film Study of Johnny Tremain - Section 3: Application

 

As I mentioned in the narrative, the movie is an old one, 1957, but the kids are eager to see the familiar characters on film so it's not a big deal.  Earlier in the year they watched Island of the Blue Dolphins, a 1964 film without care.  It's all in the way it's presented.  If I'd have sounded apologetic, their attitude going in may have shown it.  Instead, they reflected mine- having a great time reviewing an old movie and comparing it to the book.  They knew from the beginning this was a lesson, not movie day.
