Alien, the movie. Alien the punctuation?

This is a lesson plan I have been using for 2 years to teach punctuation to my students. It has worked well with levels B1-C1. The reason why I chose this particular movie, Alien,  and actually the first ALIEN movie made is that, even though older teenagers or young adults know the new version of it (the sequel was out about 2 years ago) , they are not familiar with the very first movie that ever came out. That makes it easier for me to make them work better and use their imagination. It should also be noted that I use this lesson plan when teaching essay writing and is part of the editing process which takes place in the end.

An evening with Jeffrey Eugenides

“But maybe they understood more about life than I did. From an early age they knew what little value the world placed in books, and so didn’t waste their time with them. Whereas I, even now, persist in believing that these black marks on white paper bear the greatest significance, that if I keep writing, I might be able to catch the rainbow of consciousness in a jar.”
― Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex
