This is a handout for students to complete as they view Rossi's Ivory Tower
(2014). The documentary entertains: "As tuition spirals upward and student debt passes a trillion dollars, students and parents begin to wonder if college is worth the expense."
It includes pre-viewing discussion questions (4), viewing questions (8), and post-viewing questions (3). It's designed to keep students engaged and allow them to reflect on their own educational experience and expectations.
In addition to the handout, there is an answer key with typical answers for all questions.
An interesting extension could be the following article:
"In Historic Vote, Renowned Art School Cooper Union Commits to Return to Free Tuition For All"
