Here are my tips for using Apollo 11 and Apollo 13 Movie Guide Bundle | SAVE 20% 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 minutes in addition to the length of the movie

Google Classroom Distance Learning Tips:

  1. Create an assignment using the Google Form/Slides
  2. Use the screen sharing tool on your conference calling software to play the movie
  3. Pause the movie at each question to give students time to write/discuss
  4. Make sure students input their name, so when you open your copy of the form, you can see each student’s individual response they submitted
  5. Note: If you are using the movie guide for multiple classes and want to separate responses by class, create multiple copies of the google form with file names such as [Title]MovieGuideClassPeriod[2] and then create assignments for each copy of the Google Form movie guide
