Product Description

If you need a quick filler activity or sub plan for your middle school students for December, this no prep movie guide would be perfect. Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory is touching and thought-provoking and will be sure to capture your students' attention and hearts. All you will need to do is press play!

Student Experience: During and after the movie, students will be practicing skills such as theme, conflict, characterization, mood, and setting. The human plot chart puzzle, symbolism worksheet, and constructed response prompts are excellent options to follow up the movie. Plus there are several suggestions for service projects that are inspired by the film.


- teacher's guide with answers

- interactive plot review with answers

- theme and symbols activity

- service project ideas inspired by the film

- short multiple choice quiz or alternative assessment for differentiation

- writing prompts for each mode

- super simple sub sheet

Good with the 1997 movie version. (Movie not included, but several free links to stream online are included.)
