The story is about an 11 year old African American girl who is incredibly smart but doubts her abilities. After being forced to participate in a school spelling bee, she realizes she has a talent for spelling and begins to compete for her ultimate goal: winning the National Spelling Bee. Akeelah learns to rely on her community around her to help her practice and the audience is left wondering if her dream will come true!
This movie is an excellent movie to show in school because it teaches:
- The importance of believeing in yourself
- That hard work can pay off
- The imporance of a support system in your family and community
Because of the morals and values this movie teaches, and because the questions are true, comprehension questions, you won't have to feel guilty during this movie day!
I plan to show this in my AVID classes which are usually comprised of students from lower economic backgrounds and who sometimes have self-doubt.
Use this movie guide for sub plans, end of year parties, after a unit on diversity/cultural differences, or as a brain break after STAAR or Final Exams!
Thank you for purchasing!
