Description

The Men Who Built America – Ep 1 & 2 Movie Guide | Worksheet (TV – 2012) is a great resource if you are going to show this video in class.

This product .zip file includes:

  • A student movie guide, PDF digital fillable form version (4 pages)
  • 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.

The digital version is for a paperless classroom if your students each have a tablet/iPad. Here is a method that worked for me:

1. 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.
2. Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with the students.
3. After students have completed the movie guide, ask them to save it in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)

Please see the product images for example questions from this movie guide and download a free, complete movie guide for Kung Fu Panda 3 or Percy Jackson – Lightning Thief to see the general quality of my questions and movie guides.
