Extracts of the movie “8 femmes”
How did you pick this theme or topic?
They love movies! This one was very popular in France and in the US, so I wanted to make them discover it.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
General discussion before and after watching different extracts.
How did students react?
Very well! They loved the movies and wanted to see it, so this is the one that I’m going to show on Wednesday November 28th.
Did they engage with each other and you?
The plot is really puzzling, the movie is original, and visually there is a lot to say, so they were really interested in knowing what was going on. I only got positive reactions
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes, definitely. It is cultural, a good exercise for audio comprehension, the director of the movie is the most famous in France now… a lot of reason to keep showing this movie to students.
