File 6: Movie Review


In the Movie Review task students watch a movie and do a written review of it

In this task you have to create a brochure about a preferred place Tijuana which you would like to recommend to others. It cannot be any place since the idea behind this task is to recommend places for slowing down and eating healty.

Think of public places, restaurants, hotels, spas, cafes and any other place where one can go and have a nice time in the company of family, friends or even alone.

Through out this activity you will have to collect information about a place and, most importantly prioritize so that only the most important things about the place make it to the final version of the brochure. When in doubt about what to include and exclude from a brochure, it is always a good idea to look at ones from other places so go out and pick up flyers, pamphlets and brochures from your favorite places and take note as to how they made them and what is actually on the paper.

In the table below you will find all of the information you need for completing this task successfully.

Due to the nature of writing, it is generally done outside of class having the final product in a digital file.

  2. The movie review file will be published in a designated social network group.
7. HOW WILL THIS TASK BE EVALUATED
