Picture a theme park where D.N.A. is used to reconstruct real dinosaurs.  The imagination of Steven Spielberg has invented such a place in a story where John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), a businessman and a dreamer, needs the support of two scientists before his lawyers will allow him to open his park.   He invites Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), his girlfriend, Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) to spend the weekend with him and his two grandchildren.  Hammond hopes the scientists will like what they see.  Too bad the tech guy shuts down the power  so he can steal the D.N.A.  Now it’s human against dinosaur in a movie that feels like a white-knuckle theme-park ride. Rated PG-13 (127 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.
