Organise a class survey of films, looking at the older characters in the films. Working in groups, make notes about films that you have seen.
Are there older
characters in the film? Are the older characters the heroes, the
villains, or minor characters? Are the older characters independent or
needing help? Are the older characters like real life?
Create a table (using the computer, if possible) similar to the one below and write down the information on the films your group has seen. Using the computer if possible, make a chart for the classroom wall.
you find with your class.
|Name of film||Older characters in film|
|Name||Hero, villain, or minor character?||Independent or needing help?||Like real life?|
|Driving Miss Daisy||Miss Daisy||Hero||Needing some help||Yes|
