Movie Lapbook Lessons

This study includes some wonderful lessons, and many of these concepts will apply in your student’s literature studies as well. Here is a sample of the lessons in the Movie Lapbook.

Setting– Setting is the time and place in which the story takes place.

Mood– Mood is the feeling that a film arouses in a viewer. It could be happy, sad, peaceful, hopeful, etc. Various elements, such as setting, dialogue, or facial expressions help to create the mood. The mood can change throughout a work.

Tone–Tone is the attitude of the author towards his audience and characters. This attitude may be serious, light-hearted, humorous, satiric, ironic, optimistic, pessimistic, formal, or informal.

Point of View– Point of view is the vantage point from which a story is told. There are four basic points of view.

  1. First-person: the story is told by one of the characters as he sees it.
  2. Third-person Omniscient: someone outside of the story relates the thoughts and feelings of all the characters.
  3. Third-person Limited Omniscient: someone outside of the story relates the thoughts and feelings of only one character.
  4. Third-person Camera View: seeing and recording the action from a neutral or unemotional point of view, not knowing what any character thinks or feels.
