The film A Quiet Passion is an incredible resource for teaching students about the life and poetry of one of America's most influential poets. This download is an extensive worksheet to get and keep students deeply engaged in the film, and to help you structure and support your lesson.
If there ever was a resource to get students to closely watch and think about a historical or literary film, this is it.
MS Word Format so you can adapt however you want.

12 critical thinking questions mixed in with dialog questions in key scenes.
5 final critical analysis questions.
Transcripts (and fill in the blanks) for the approx 20 poems (depending on how you count) that appear in the film.
I award half a point for the fill-ins, 1 point for the in-line questions, and 5 each for the final questions, making this worth approximately 125 points total.
The film is available from Amazon and other sources and runs about 2 hours. It is an exceptionally good film and poses no content/ratings issues.
