Product Description
Non-fiction
Film study
The Holocaust

Included in this unit are the following:
➢ A multiple choice quiz with ten questions and answers

➢ A short summary of the film with images

➢ Essay questions and discussion questions

➢ 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).

➢ Questions aligned with ELA-Literacy CCSS 8-12 – in particular with the following standards:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.8.1 Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.8.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including analogies or allusions to other texts.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.2 Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.3 Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.11-12.2 Determine two or more themes or central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to produce a complex account; provide an objective summary of the text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RH.9-10.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary describing political, social, or economic aspects of history/social science.


DEFIANCE is based on a true story. I teach it in several of my classes; the film is suitable for high school, college, and university students. The clips I've included are violent and so it may not be suitable for grade 8 students - please use discretion. My students watch it at home before we discuss it in class - I have the library put it on a four hour reserve as well.

I teach DEFIANCE as a TEXTURE TEXT or a CONTEXT TEXT usually alongside THE REPUBLIC. It is an excellent film to use when studying philosophical concepts including, but not limited to, the following: morality, ethics, sacrifice, freedom, and the power of hope.
