70 Questions based on the Spike Lee movie Malcolm X starring Denzel Washington.
Students pay much better attention when they know they will be tested on the movie afterwards -- though you can use these questions in a lot of ways, including making worksheets that students fill out as they watch.
All questions are multiple choice, though I have also provided them pre-converted into open-ended questions if you prefer a more challenging format. The questions are arranged chronologically so that you can easily use a "chunk" of them to match a specific portion of the film.
Teacher convenience is a hallmark of my products.
Therefore, full answer keys are provided to you -- no need to purchase another product in order to make this one usable!
You will get several different format and delivery options as well. The full download includes all questions in a multiple-choice format and has parallel files in which the same items are delivered as open-ended questions (i.e., What was Malcolm X's original last name? (no answer choices supplied; the student must generate the correct answer with no hints). This gives you an "easy" set of questions and a more challenging set so that you can adapt the material to the right level for your classes.
You will also receive all questions in several formats:
--- .pdf for easy use and printing
--- .rtf for use in word processing programs so that you can customize the movie viewing unit to match your own curriculum
--- .bnk for use with Examview or CPS. The .bnk lets you make a master test that combines these questions with your own files. For example, you could have combine a testbank file that came with your textbook with this file and you would be able to instantly create a test that assessed the chapter AND the movie all at once.
--- .tst for use with Examview or CPS so that you can deliver questions electronically using computers or "clickers." No need to type them all in again -- the work has already been done for you!
Malcolm X is an excellent movie for history classes. It covers the major topics of Civil Rights struggle, African American leaders, Black Nationalism, and the era of the 1960s.
The Preview file gives you the first 12 questions of the 70 in order to provide you with a sampling of the kinds of things asked. The Preview shows you both the multiple choice and open-ended formats described above.
These questions are perfect for assessing how well students paid attention to the movie, and they can also be used as a springboard to preview important points in the movie or to discuss it with the class afterwards. You can have students take notes during the movie and use them with these questions afterwards, or require them to do the questions from memory only -- or use the questions as a worksheet during viewing.
The possibilities aren't endless, but there are a lot of them -- all with little to no work needed on your part.
