PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"If you don't try to win, you might as well hold the Olympics in somebody's back yard." Jesse Owens ~ American Track and Field Olympic Gold Medalist (1913 - 1980)


Two films are included here.


One is a documentary using much actual footage from the Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936 and reveals the inspiring story of Jesse Owens. It is called 'Jesse Owens - American Experience'.


Please note that the DVD is not included with this product. It is available at www.PBS.org ~ click Jesse Owens * American Experience to read more.


The other is the bio-pic 'Race' with Stephan James from 2016.


You get:

1. An introductory overhead which can be used with either film to put the film in historical perspective.

2. A Feature*Film sheet with 20 follow-along questions in English that go with 'Jesse Owens ~ An American Experience'.

3. A Feature*Film sheet with 20 follow-along questions in English that go with 'Race'.

4. Answer keys to both Feature*Film sheets.

5. A follow-up overhead with some fact vs. fiction points about the film, Hitler's supposed snub of Owens at the games, those spiked running shoes and more.


In an era of few advantages for African Americans, Jesse Owens excelled on the track field ~ so much so that he was on the U.S. Olympic Team that went to Berlin for the 1936 summer Olympic Games.


But The Third Reich was proclaiming Aryan superiority. Would that affect Jesse's performance ?


Apparently not.


He won four Gold Medals ~ an Olympic record that stood for decades.


Need something unique in your German class for Black History Month ?

Teaching history and wanting a look back to the 1930s ?

Then this one dazzling story of a determined athlete in a depressed decade is perfect for your class.


Each Feature * Film sheet has twenty follow-along questions in English that go with the film. These can also be used as enrichment to a topic or as a substitute lesson plan (or emergency lesson plan).


Having students select from multiple choice answers allows more time for their eyes to stay on the film (and not spend it looking down writing out answers) and, thus, not miss important moments in the film.


Jesse Owens, a very polite and very determined athlete, stole the show at the Berlin Olympics and became a legend in his own time ... and ours. (16 pages)
