This is a process booklet I created for a Racism unit studied in English.
This booklet breaks down each scene and forces students to think about the racial and stereotypical comments that are said throughout the movie, how each character feels as a result of the racism, and the events that occur due to racial discrimination. It also asks students to think about how each character in the movie is connected, showing that we are all a like, and all connected, and what happens to others can ultimately affect what happens to us.
At the end, students are asked to think about how each character has changed as a result of their experiences with racism and the lessons each character has learned through these experiences.
Each scene is numbered. Use this as a discussion guide or as a process booklet for students to do on their own. At the end of the movie, students are also given two journal entries to help process what they have learned as a result of watching the movie.
Crash is a rated R movie, so a permission slip would need to be sent home to parents to be signed. I have used this for grades 10 and up.
This movie is a great example of the racism that occurs in the United States towards many different groups of people.
