Everybody's a critic—even your pupils! Using the included resources as a guide, screen films related to social justice and ask film enthusiasts to critique them. Publish the reviews for your school community or develop a film festival using the guidance in the resource. Materials include various rubrics and checklists to keep scholars on track and accountable to the goals of the project.
