Looking for an engaging activity to teach bias, symbolism, and propaganda. I use this resource in my own classroom and my students love it. Using movies to teach bias, symbolism, and propaganda is a fun way for students to interact with this new knowledge. I especially love Monster's Inc because it is a kid-friendly movie with a deep message of how to make your own conclusions instead of being influenced.

This a no-prep lesson plan. Print the worksheets and go!

This resource includes:


Symbolism discussion

Symbolism cooperative group activity

Bias, symbolism and propaganda movie viewing guide ( monster's inc)

Essay writing prompts with rubric
