Film Festival Comments

We are learning how to write a quality blog comment for the Manaiakalani Film Festival

Learning how to leave quality blog comments is an important part of being Cybersmart. It teaches us how to interact with others online and enables us to continue creating a positive digital footprint.    

Using elements of film to help us write quality comments in response to the Manaiakalani Film Festival movies.

Identify a small selection of movies  that will appeal to your learners, from previous  film festivals.  Select movies that include strong examples of some of the elements above. Look for opportunities to model writing a comment and sharing quality comments via the class display to compare and contrast with our quality blog commenting criteria

Encourage use of POWER words and emphasise vocabulary specific to the elements of a film.
