75th Annual Academy Awards
What year was the first awards banquet held? Exactly
how many statuettes have been presented since then?
How tall is Oscar and what is he made out of anyway?

Answer these questions and find out more in
ClassBrain's article, "A Brief History of the Oscar." Take
our Oscar Quiz to see how well you know your history,
or read about the 75th Annual Academy Awards. Follow

Oscar fun!

Movies in the Classroom
ClassBrain's Movies in the Classroom is a
collection of lesson plans for today's current films
complete with outlines, worksheets, projects, suggested
book lists, and Internet resources. If you have a
particular movie in mind, search by subject and studio
or pick one at random!

We've just posted our Gangs of New York
Lesson Plan for High School students with plenty of
options so you can taylor it to meet the needs of your
students. The Gangs of New York "Linguistics
Lesson Plan" centers on street slang from 1859 with the
help of a book called The Secret Language of
Crime: The Rogue's Lexicon
. The "Gang Warfare
Then & Now Lesson Plan" requires students to write a
compare and contrast essay dealing with historical and
present day gangs.

A recent addition to our English section, the "Plot
Structure Lesson Plan" delves deeper into the movies
Adaptation and The Hours focusing on
multiple time periods and story lines. The "How
Literature Effects Our Lives Lesson Plan" has two options
and examines three women's lives in The Hours.
For the younger folk we've posted an "Endangered
Species Lesson Plan" with a bunch of worksheets and
projects based on The Wild Thornberry's movie,
and for fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding we
have a Sociology lesson plan. Don't forget to look for
our Spider Man and The Lord of the Rings:
Two Towers
lesson plans as well!

Start the fun...
