Reflection: Analyzing Character -Lesson 3 of Cinder Book One - Section 2: Warm Up


It is not necessary to use Pixar characters.  I strongly suggest that you use whatever will appeal to and interest your students.  I selected Pixar as I wanted a subject that I felt all students would both enjoy and understand. It is imperative that the subject you choose be one with which students are already familiar and comfortable as opposed to something intimidating. This excites them and earns interest.

An alternative suggestion would be characters from a particular movie that all students where exposed to through a particular class or school activities in the past few years.  

Be aware that the mini-lesson that follows this warm-up is based around Pixar as well, but could easily be based on another subject -movie, TV show, etc. with which students are comfortable.  Please see the strategy video within the mini-lesson segment to learn how to embed and use Youtube videos to create your own version of this Powerpoint.
