Take full advantage of the learning opportunities in this film by using this movie guide. Journey through the movie as a class, pausing at the designated times, and discuss and answer the thought provoking questions.

This resource consists of 14 high-level, short answer and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information. See the preview files for high resolution sample questions.

This product .zip file includes:

  • A student movie guide, PDF print version  (5 pages)
  • An answer key (5 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 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.

Distance Learning Tips:

  1. Distribute the google slides version to each student
  2. Use the screen sharing tool on your group call software to play the movie
  3. Pause the movie at each question to give students time to write/discuss
