Product Description
This file includes a viewing guide for students to complete as they watch DuVernay's 13th (2017). This file also includes an answer key.

According to Netflix, "In this thought-provoking documentary, scholars, activists, and politicians analyze the criminalization of Africa-Americans and the U.S. prison boom." The documentary is 100 minutes and can be streamed using Netflix. As a result, many students can watch the documentary and complete the viewing guide independently or in class.

Netflix also has 13th: A Conversation with Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay that would pair nicely for a film class, as DuVernay discusses her inspiration and methods for making 13th.

The viewing guide includes pre-viewing discussion questions (2), viewing questions (47), and post-viewing questions (5). The Word document is editable, so you can choose which questions are best for your students. The handout is designed to spark inquisitiveness, engage students while they analyze the documentary's argument, and consider their own position.

Once completed, I often have a graded discussion over the documentary where students use the viewing guide to inform and shape their opinions. The pre- and post-viewing questions often jump start and anchor these discussions.

*WARNING: There are instances of harsh language and violence.

This documentary pairs well with Bryan Stevenson's book, Just Mercy.
