This lesson plan is used after the students watch the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. The movie is very difficult for them to understand, and this lesson guides and supports them as they think about what the movie is about.
This lesson includes a page of directions for you, a graphic organizer, three articles (found online and included in this document) about 2001 and two short writing prompts. The assignment has the students work in groups, discuss as a class and work individually.
I have found that this lesson greatly helps students understand and have more appreciation of the movie 2001.
