CommonSense active watching plan
Year of production: 2021
In the age of fidgety fingers, habitual multitasking and smartphone addiction, it can be hard to try and stay present when consuming audiovisual media. This strategic movie night plan, along with the handout from Common Sense Education, is a great way to train the youths to focus, analyse and be mindful media consumers. The prep time for you as a facilitator is no more than 30 minutes and the discussion-based format is pretty intuitive. This also poses an opportunity to choose a thought-provoking film and make sure your viewing group actually dives as deeply as the film maker intended. Win!
