Little Women Movie Guide

$4.89

This Little Women Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (PG – 2019) challenges students to connect with the complex characters in this gripping classic. Explore women’s rights issues pertaining to marriage as Amy, Jo and Meg grapple with what marriage means to them during the 1860s. Ask students to connect their own experiences to the sibling rivalries and family dynamics in the March household. Discuss and interpret select literary quotes from the film and how they might apply to students’ lives.

Note: This movie guide accompanies the newest movie version from 2019 (*not the 1994 version) of Louisa May Alcott’s two part novel from the 1860s.

This movie is available for rent on Amazon Prime.

This resource consists of 12 high-level, short answer and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information. See the thumbnail images for sample questions.

Digital Version Tips

  • It is intended for a paperless, 1:1 tablet/iPad classroom impotenciastop.com
  • Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don’t already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
  • Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with students.
  • When complete, ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)
