Product Description
"As far as I am concerned, whom is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler." Calvin Trillin (American humorist ~ 1935)


~ Definition ~
BUTLER noun
"the chief male servant of a household who has charge of other employees, receives guests, directs the serving of meals, and performs various personal services"


There have been butlers in The White House going all the way back to Abraham Lincoln.


The Butler in this movie serves a series of presidents from both parties in his long years of service.


Included here are:

1. A 5-page introductory overhead in English with some background information to set the scene

2. A Feature * Film sheet with 20 questions in English
3. An answer key for the question sheet

4. A 10-page follow-up overhead giving 'fact vs. fiction' - what is true in the story and what Hollywood has added for dramatic effect

5. A word search activity follow-up
6. An answer key for the word search.



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.


This film can be used as enrichment to a topic or as a substitute lesson plan (or emergency lesson plan) with meaningful content.


This story shows us The Butler, a dignified man in the background, a witness to history as it unfolded in The White House. (22 pages)


* PLEASE NOTE *
Here is an interview with the REAL White House butler, Eugene Allen, who served eight presidents with pride and professionalism and on whom this story is loosely based ~
