A  Kansas tornado sweeps Dorothy (Judy Garland) into the sky and carries her ‘over the rainbow’ to the magical land of Oz.  Now, all she wants is to go back home.  The Munchkins tell her to take the Yellow-Brick Road, and the Good Witch of the North gives her the ruby slippers to protect her from the Wicked Witch of the West.  Dorothy is soon joined by the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion.  Together, they’re ‘Off to See the Wizard’ in one of the most quoted and loved family stories of all time, and the first color movie in popular culture.   Academy Award, Best Original Song “Over the Rainbow”.   MGM Studios.    Rated G   (101 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.
