Video Flick Depicts Student Concerns

I’ve been looking for a video to reinforce my introduction to the Comparison-Contrast essay. Because students analyze two pieces of literature, I teach them to write a Dual Text Analysis.  I found GoAnimate “Writing the Comparison-Contrast Essay” at http://goanimate.com/videos/01MfpW6tSMYU. This particular video will help students overcome the fear of writing in a new style and offers insight into the importance of the essay thesis.

Students will respond to this video because of its anime format. Further, the characters react just as students react when unclear about an assignment. The video will reinforce materials in a somewhat comical way, yet with serious undertones.

This video will be shown after students receive introductory materials about this style of writing. I will then show the video. Students will then react to the video in a reflection which will then be discussed.
