You won't be cranky if you read Crank.

Spoiler alert.Ellen Hopkins did a nice job in writing Crank. She writes the entire book in free verse and creates a picturesque interpretation with the lines on every page. Yes it looks like a lengthy book, but really it’s very quick to plow through. The themes are controversial with drug use, teen pregnancy, and rape among others. Though, Hopkins doesn’t promote any of them; her book is more of a cautious warning for teens since her own daughter had a similar life story herself.A quick…See More

Amy Pine commented on Maggie Lundholm's blog post “Never tell a crazy person he’s crazy.” -Tina Fey
"I so loved this book. I could hear Tina Fey's voice in my head as I read. I think she is hilarious and brilliant, and I love how candid she is about her awkward teen and young adult years. She's fantastic. Can you tell I'm a fan?"

"Watching the movie after you just read the book would be a great way to understand the plot more and bring the characters to life. In 8th grade, we read Romeo and Juliet, and after each act, we would watch the movie. It really helped me…"

"Movies are definitely a good way to further your understanding of a book and add that extra visual layer to your previous understanding. However, I often find myself having the book ruined because of a movie. First of all, I never watch the movie…"

"I love watching movies in class, too! Besides it being fun, it's really helpful for a majority of the books we read. Half the time, we're all confused about Shakespeare and other books written in a different dialect then we're used…"

"I love watching movies in class, too, because we do get a nice two to three day break. Reading a book than watching a movie does give another interpretation of the novel and helps you understand some things that you might not have gotten when…"

Perianne Johnson commented on Maggie Lundholm's blog post Movies in English Class?!? I think so!
"I agree that watching the movie version of a novel can be helpful for illuminating a tricky plot or bringing life to the characters, but I think it can sometimes go a little too far. When my class was reading Pride and Prejudice, we would watch a…"

"YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.  I LOVE WATCHING MOVIES IN CLASS.  Of course it is because they help me understand the book better...  Anyway I really do believe that movies help make people understand books.  It's one…"

"I love watching movies in English class because it not only brings life to the characters, it also helps me see how someone else (the director, actors, etc.) see certain characters or scenes. Plus, like you said, it helps me stay awake and…"

Andrew Lundholm commented on Maggie Lundholm's blog post “Never tell a crazy person he’s crazy.” -Tina Fey
"How recent did Tina Fey get popular?  When writers also act in the same movie or show they write in they get to use there personality in the character's which is usually skewed when actors read from another person's writing.  In…"

Lauren Marek commented on Maggie Lundholm's blog post Movies in English Class?!? I think so!
"I love when we watch movies in class based on a book we read. It's a really interesting perspective to see the action instead of reading it. Plus, you gotta admit, it's hilarious when the movie's really old and any of the following…"

Andrew Lundholm commented on Maggie Lundholm's blog post Movies in English Class?!? I think so!
"Hey Mag!  Usually in our class, if we read a chapter, we'd watch the scene in the movie that accompanies it.  This helped me to imagine the setting and to see the character's expressions and emotions outside of what the author…"

"I have watched both Hamlet and Pride and Prejudice in Pine's class and it was interesting to see the directors different takes on the stories.  For example, the director of the movie Hamlet made Hamlet and his mother have some sort of…"

Movies in English Class?!? I think so!

Hey Guys! So I was thinking about all the fun things my class did this year. Yeah we went to WW18, contest play, group interpretations, and other auditorium adventures, but we also explored something else: movies. Accompanying some of the books we read, we also watched its interpretation on screen. Why should this go unnoticed? It is a form of literature because we see the point of view twisted through the director’s eyes and can appreciate the plot in a different way. Here’s a list of the…See More

Maggie Lundholm commented on Ji Young Seo's blog post AP Student or High School Robot?
"Yeah! I agree, but I think we get the full blown AP crunch at Fremd rather than other students in different districts or states. It really depends on the competition your school has and unfortunately, ours is covered in it. But in reality, if…"

"Hey Isaballler!! I haven't read this read book before, but I do own it from my sister...and actually almost grabbed it for english class (independent reading books), but thought not to at the last second. Guess who will open that book soon??…"

“Never tell a crazy person he’s crazy.” -Tina Fey

Tina Fey’s Bossypants is quite comical. She includes an autobiography, advice, backstage perspective, and many jokes. The entire book is interesting, so don’t think it’s a boring nonfiction book. There is such a thing as very cool people.…
