The Odd Life of Timothy McGreen

Teaching grammar is a CHORE…I dislike it as much as my students. So…I used this movie to teach lots of grammar as a concept, in context. We basically watched the movie in scenes and then read what we watched. We read together, in class. We clarified any questions and did “pop-up” grammar reviews, if needed. This is an excellent movie to teach acceptance, tolerance, goals, dreams, and to always strive to love one another, to look at the glass half full or overflowing with blessings.

Attached are the links to what we used in class. Hope it is hopeful to someone.

Here is the short quiz that my students took after watching and reading the entire script on Timothy McGreen.

Here is a document on vocabulary on the movie
