In 1950s America, young Hogarth Hughes is a lonely boy without a father . His life changes when he makes friends with a 100-foot-tall robot that eats metal.  The government sends Kent Mansley to find the monster from space and "destroy it before it destroys us."  With help from Dean at the junkyard, Hogarth hides his new friend and teaches him about life's important choices.  But can one small boy save the giant from certain destruction by the government?  Jennifer Aniston stars as the voice of Hogarth's mother, and Vin Diesel as the Giant, in this heartwarming and culturally-rich animation. Rated PG  (86 min.)   mike laib  2011

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.
