The CCSS “lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the 21st century.” Integrating film into your curriculum is an excellent way to satisfy many of the new Common Core State Standards.
You don’t need to show entire films, just short clips of these films, to develop competences deemed essential in the new CCSS guidelines.
INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:
➢ This unit allows for differentiated learning; some students may be more comfortable with the questions that focus on the lower levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy (remembering/ comprehension and simple applications/understanding), whereas other questions provide students the opportunity to focus on higher levels (analysis and evaluation).
➢ This unit is self-contained as all of the questions may be answered using the summary provided. However, watching the film is highly recommended.
➢ A summary of the film with images.
➢ Essay questions and/or discussion questions.
➢ 16 essay questions and 5 passages that ask for analysis of a small section of dialogue. These questions vary as to difficulty and are aligned with the following Common Core Standards:
I teach BLADE RUNNER as a TEXTURE TEXT or a CONTEXT TEXT usually alongside THUS SPAKE ZARATHUSTRA and FRANKENSTEIN. It is an excellent film to use when studying philosophical concepts including, but not limited to, the following: morality, ethics, sacrifice, duty, knowledge, and postmodernism.
