The Matrix in Class – Part II

Today we started the film The Matrix and the kids are enthralled. What a great feeling to know they are learning the literary devices and analyzing while enjoying the process.

Also, I introduced the double-entry journal, the Christ-like character attributes, and the heroic cycle. Everyone dove right in to the the work.

While watching the film I paused the DVD a few times, so the kids could jot down lines of foreshadowing (“You’re my savior, man! My Jesus Christ.”) and allusions (like the white rabbit). We’re off to a great start!
