A cowboy (Daniel Craig) with no memory wakes up in the desert and begins a journey to save the human race from an alien invasion in an adventure fantasy directed by Jon Favreau, produced by Steven Spielberg.  The cowboy finds himself in a small town where the sheriff (Keith Carradine) and cattle boss (Harrison Ford) recognize him as Jake Lonergan, a wanted outlaw.  The town is soon invaded by "Demons" from the sky.  Jake, his gang, the townspeople, and a group of Apache Indians must find a way to join forces, stop the aliens, and save their kidnapped loved ones in a story that honors many elements of the classic Western movie. Rated PG-13 (119 min.) mike laib 2012.


Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
