“I Learned It in a Movie…”

November 27, 2013 ·

Has this ever happened to you, where you actually gain a lot of knowledge and start spitting out random facts that turn out to be useful from none other than a movie? Here at The Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation we support visual learning. For this reason CKSF is happy to announce that starting in the month of December there will be movie quizzes!

The office staff at CKSF has been debating whether there should be awarded movie quizzes for a long time. Daryl Hulce, the supervisor has been repeatedly succumbed with different movies to test kids on in a wide range of genres. Eventually Daryl waved up the white flag and agreed. These movie quizzes have great potential. Contrary to some belief, movies help in information retention. There are many people who simply cannot sit down and gain information from reading a book but can quote a whole entire movie. These people deserve the chance to win something just as much as a skilled book reader. This quiz will hopefully open up the doors for these students to feel accomplished and get rewarded for their skills and common knowledge.

Choosing a movie, however, was a great difficulty for the entire staff. E-mails were sent out to choose one movie and no one agreed or proposed the same one. The only solution to this problem was to agree on having a whole series of movies that quizzes will be generated for. The first movie will be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This is a commonly known movie and also a book; therefore it seemed like a good first fit. Many differing genres will follow for people of all interests and knowledge.

The winning participants will get awarded with movie tickets to continue on their movie education. Movies are entertaining and educational all in one and should be appreciated as such. Keep a look out for quiz dates and movies that range from Disney to the Blind Side, to even Star Wars. The possibilities are endless! Don’t hesitate and log on to www.cksf.org to register for an account and keep a record of the movies that are to follow and start preparing!
