  • CCSS Alignment Sheet – The movie guides are aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy. This ensures that the questions in the guide are rigorous and encourage critical thinking and reflection. So, even without a background in teaching, you can be confident that the guides will support your child’s learning effectively.

Note About .zip Files:

The movie guides are stored in .zip files, a type of compressed file format that saves storage space and allows for faster downloads. To access the contents of these .zip files, you’ll need software that can ‘unzip’ or ‘extract’ the compressed files.

If you don’t already have such a software, there are several free options available, including a popular choice like WinRAR. After downloading and installing WinRAR or a similar program, you can right-click on the .zip file and select ‘Extract Here’ or ‘Extract Files.’ The software will then unpack the contents, making them accessible for use.

Helpful Suggestions for Using the Printed or Google Slides Version of this Movie Guide:

  1. Print a double-sided copy of the movie guide for each child or use the Google Slides version for a paperless experience.
  2. Before answering each question, preview the next one on the guide. This will help your child anticipate and focus on key events in the film.
  3. Pause the movie at the times suggested in the guide to stimulate discussion and debate. Encourage your child to articulate their ideas before jotting down their answers.
  4. Inspire your child to think independently
  5. Prompt your child to explain their answer. If necessary, have them defend their viewpoint. This can help boost their critical thinking and reasoning skills.
  6. If there’s time, you might want to replay significant movie scenes for deeper understanding and analysis.
  7. Once the short answer questions are done, allocate ~10 minutes for each essay question at the end of the movie.
  8. Please note that, on average, completing this movie guide will take ~60 minutes, in addition to the movie’s duration. This time investment will greatly enrich your child’s movie-watching experience and learning.
