MATERIALS •Computer/Projector •Access to individual computer devices and the internet •"Film Industry Mini-Research Assignment" worksheet Arts ACTIVATE: QUICK WRITE Inform the class that we are going to start the lesson with a Quick Write. A Quick Write is an activ- ity where students quickly write whatever comes to mind about a topic you give them. Typically, students are allotted 3-5 minutes for this activity. Pose the question "What would your dream job be like?". Allow students 3-5 minutes to write either in point form or paragraph form whatever comes to mind. Some students will likely have specific jobs in mind that they will be describing, while others may be creating a dream job description. Once the time limit is up, solicit volunteers to share their answers with the class. Ask students to raise their hands if any of their Quick Writes included something about "fun". Inform the class that today we are going to be learning about Hanwakan Blakie Whitecloud's journey finding a career that he considers fun!
