Of Mice and Men Oscar's Project
Lord Byng Secondary
April 29, 2007
The students in a grade 11 Byng Arts English class were asked to present an academy awards ceremony to the class. They had to give awards to characters from the novel. Each group had a host to introduce the ceremony, present the awards and conclude the ceremony. The other group members were characters from the novel receiving the awards and making acceptance speeches.
These are sample video clips of the oscar presentations. Each group member represented a character from the novel; they had to create a unique award for their character and compose and present an acceptance speech. The purpose of this project was to investigate the characters in the novel in a creative, but yet analytical way. ...
the students were great and very creative. learning should always be this much fun. why do time restraints in education diminish this aspect of teaching?
