I created this unit for my senior Government class. This unit is more supplemental to the movie than a movie question guide. There is pre-movie work, a few movie questions, and post-movie work. There are also two optional activities.
Pre-Movie work: students read Federalist Paper No. 10 (James Madison) and analyze his concerns about factions and the republican system of government created to control the effects of factions. I did not create an analysis of the ENTIRE essay but the main points concerning factions. There are 8 reading excerpts the students will read and answer questions about.
Movie work: 7 questions (two pages) where the students analyze characteristics of the factions, why the faction system was implemented, issue of those who want control/power, etc. I do not like creating movie guides that are very specific to the movie because the students focus more on trying to answer the specific questions instead of drawing generalizations about a topic. I want them to THINK and EXPLAIN their answers rather than me dictating what I want them to answer.
Post-movie work: the students look a little deeper into the faction system, the faction-less, and history of political parties in our country. They will read an excerpt from President George Washington's Farewell Address that warns against factions (parties). To understand political parties, I have included a website the students will visit to answer questions.
The two optional activities: 1) researching a historical figure like "Jeanine" in the movie. I provide a list to choose from but you can add to this list (examples: Stalin, Lenin, etc.) 2) extra credit activity where the students find a food recipe that describes a faction (in the post movie work, the students will visit the website to take the faction quiz).
Any questions let me know.
