Zeezok Publishing Review

We are huge movie watchers at our house. But we watch nearly all movies for shear entertainment value.  Rarely do we watch them for educational purposes.  As a homeschooling parent, that is something I would like to change this year in our home.  So I was excited when asked to review a movie guide for Zeezok Publishing.

Zeezok offers many different Z-Guides ranging from elementary levels to high school levels.  There are also many different movies available as well.  We were given the Luther guide to review, and so we found the movie and began our review.

We began with a pre-movie synopsis, that basically gets the child prepped for the show. Things for which they need to watch, what to expect, etc.  There are 10 different activities given to be accomplished over a week's worth of time.  There was activities regarding historical setting, research skills, writing skills, hands-on activity, a worldview study, critical thinking skills, and family discussion questions. There is also a section called The Filmaker’s Art activity that helps the student recognize the tools being used to influence the viewer.


*I was given a copy of this curriculum for the purpose of review only. All opinions are mine. For more reviews, please see The Homeschool Crew Blog.
