Back to the Future Movie Guide | Worksheet | Questions | Google Slides (PG – 1985) challenges students to explore Marty and George’s behavioral changes throughout time. Ask students to identify differences in technology, fashion and nuance in word meaning between 1985 and 1955. Think like a director and describe how events are used to create suspense during the final action scene. Finally, discuss how self-confidence makes a huge difference in George McFly’s life and what we can learn from it.

Check the preview file for high resolution sample questions to see if this movie guide is suitable for your students. This resource consists of 13 high-level, short answer reflection and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information.

This product .zip file includes:

  • A student movie guide, PDF print version (4 pages)
  • An answer key (4 pages) is included, however, some answers will vary as students are encouraged to construct their own meaning throughout the film and many questions are open-ended.
  • A Google Slides Version of the Movie Guide (A PDF with a link to make a copy of the guide to your Google Drive)
  • A generic movie guide permission slip (1 page)
  • CCSS alignment indicating standards met, PDF (1 page – see also preview image)
    • CCSS Note: I’ve taken the liberty of aligning certain reading standards with the act of consuming content via the movie instead. Although students aren’t reading they are asked to perform the same cognitive functions on the content that they consumed from the movie.

    3. Pause the movie at each question to give students time to write/discuss
    4. For Google Forms Only:
      • 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
      • 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 Forms movie guide
