Film study: Minority Report (quiz and questions)
I use films as a way to introduce students to philosophy. I put a copy of the film in the library on reserve and my students are able to take the copy out for four hours at a time; they watch the film on their own time as a form of homework (one they usually enjoy).
This unit is part of a bundled unit on Dystopian films. You will find it here:
INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:
➢ A multiple-choice test with 15 questions and answers.
➢ Six pages of student-centered discussion questions - several may be used as essay questions. One question asks students to analyze a passage of the screenplay.
➢ The zip file contains the test and questions as separate PDF units.
➢ The first page of the screenplay.
I have found that discussing films is a successful way to engage my students; most students get involved, even the shy ones, because almost all teenagers find it easy to talk about films, so they usually have something to say.
Minority Report is an excellent film to use when studying philosophical concepts including, but not limited to, the following: free will, metaphysics, ethics, sacrifice, justice, and freedom. It also raises interesting questions about the difference between fact and opinion. Two of the discussion questions in this unit focus on this important topic.
You don’t need to show entire films, just short clips of these films, to develop competences deemed essential in the new CCSS guidelines.
Here is another of my film units:
