Predictive writing - the great reveal

You’ll be amazed by the excitement that predictive writing will cause amongst students. They will talk about the ending at lunchtime and will badger their teacher to reveal the ending all through the day.

So, here it is.

Were there any surprises? Did you guess what happened? Were there any clues in the first part of the film? Did you like the ending in the film or do you prefer your version?

In class, after pupils have seen the final installment of the film, it’s important to talk about the differences that existed between pupils’ predictions and the ending.

Please share any interesting class reactions and stories with us in the comments box below.
