Color-Fill Film Guides are doodle notes for movies. They are perfect to leave with a sub., give for extension extra-credit, or just to use in class. Students color and answer prompts as they watch the film. The coloring aspect is just enough to help them concentrate. When the film is finished, they have an “Implications of A Class Divided” page that asks them to consider the sociological implications of Jane Elliot’s experiment in discrimination.
Following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., third grade teacher, Jane Elliot knew she needed to teach her all white class a lesson on the power of labels and discrimination. She divided her class into blue-eyed and brown-eyed students and proceeded to simulate what it was like to be discriminated against. This experiment demonstrates the implications of labels to students.
A Class Divided is a Frontline special and is available on the PBS Website and on YouTube. Preview first—racial expletives are used. Here is what PBS says about the film: “Because the film deals with racism and prejudice, it may raise deep emotions for both you and your students. Some students may be confronted with privilege for the first time while others may see an affirmation of a lifetime of discrimination.”
☑ Two pages of Color-Fill Film Guides to use with the film
☑ One page of the Implications of the study
☑ One page of Color-Fill Notes to help students reflect on the study’s implications
☑ Answer Key
❯ There are many ways you can use Color-Fill Film Guides in your classroom, but here are a few suggestions:
❶ Assign them as substitute teacher lesson plans. History teachers have a huge amount of content to cover. If you ever have to be out, these guides will ensure that your students’ time is not wasted. They will continue to learn about the time period in question while you are out. Instruct the sub to print the Film-Guide pages front to back. When you return, assign them the “Historicity of” pages.
❷ Use the Film-Guide in class as an assignment after you have taught the topic. Have students consider what you taught them along with the Historicity Of Pages after the film is over.
❸ Time is an issue for most history teachers. Use these as an extension either for extra credit or homework to help your students to consider your topic of study further.
❹ Or if you want to enrich your student’s understanding of historical events, show it at home, and use the guide for focus and as a springboard for discussion.
