Description

This educational Hidden Figures movie guide is a must have if you are showing this movie in class. The 5 page study guide can help students learn from this important historical event that shouldn’t be ‘hidden’ any longer.  Discuss with your students the 14 high-level short answer and essay questions by pausing at the designated times on the movie guide.

An answer key is not included as many questions are open-ended and encourage students to analyze the film by constructing their own meaning from the characters’ dialogue and behavior. Please see the product images for example questions.

Here are my tips for using this Hidden Figures movie guide in your classroom:

  1. Print one, double-sided movie guide for each student
  2. Preview each question on the movie guide as you come to it before resuming the movie
  3. Pause at the times designated on the movie guide and help students if necessary
    • Discussion here is great, encourage and allow students to share their ideas and thoughts for any question
    • Discourage students from simply copying answers
    • If needed, and if time allows, feel free to rewind and show important parts of the movie for additional analysis
  4. After completing the short answers on the movie guide, allow 5-10 minutes for each essay question at the end
  5. On average, completing this movie guide will require about 30-45 minutes in addition to the length of the movie
