Product Description
Resource for a minilesson / mini-unit on the episode "Nosedive" from the series Black Mirror.

This resource includes a note-catcher for use during viewing, a group activity where students compare data collected during the video, and a culminating ORQ where students are asked to choose between 2 arguments related to their note-catcher and data (see below).

This resource also includes an accommodation version of the handout/ORQ, AND a modified version of the ORQ: a sentence frame fill-in version for both arguments. (6 pages total)

The arguments that students will choose between are:

Opinion 1: In Lacie’s world, from the Black Mirror episode, “Nosedive,” the citizens are ultimately responsible for each other’s happiness.

Opinion 2: In Lacie’s world, from the Black Mirror episode, “Nosedive,” each citizen is ultimately responsible for their own happiness.

Because students are writing about 2 opposite opinions, they can use their ORQs as a jump-off point for a class debate/discussion afterward.

This mini-unit would fit perfectly with a larger unit that focuses on the essential question "To what extent are we, as people, responsible for the happiness and well-being of others?" (Texts could include "Of Mice and Men" or any other text that deals with this theme).

This mini-unit could also be used as a stand-alone unit on social responsibility or the dangers of social media.


****(This episode does have a lot of profanity, and the characters mention sex twice, so this is a lesson for highschoolers).
