The site MovieSheets.com was created in early 2008, but a similar site existed since 2005 on a different domain and web host. Movie Sheets contains one of the largest databases of classroom movie worksheets on the net. These worksheets are based on films that teachers have viewed then subsequently created film guides for. These film sheets have been tested within the classroom.
The collection of files on this site was generously contributed by teachers from all over the world. The files are submitted voluntarily and are catalogued and placed into a the movie sheets database. You do not need to be a member to download files. Please consider sharing pieces of work by clicking here.
The ultimate goal of the site was to setup a central location for all teachers to visit in order to find course and profession related video and movie guides. The idea behind the site was to provide teachers a “one stop shop” for their film related needs. The site contains thousands of movie guides for hundreds of different films. Links are also provided for teachers to purchase these films at a significant discount through an e-commerce site. It is my goal to continue to organize quality video related material for educators.
We at Moviesheets.com feel that showing videos and the occasional Hollywood film in the classroom is an innovative way to demonstrate concepts and expose common misconceptions while providing a thought provoking change of pace for students. However, we do not expect these film worksheets to supplement good interactive, thought provoking activities in the classroom. We rarely recommend showing a film in its entirety even with a worksheet taken from this site. We highly recommend to show the film, then stop the footage, do some teaching/review and start it up again.
