PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

(From Wikipedia) League of Denial initially broadcast as a documentary film, about traumatic brain injury in the National Football League (NFL), particularly concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). The documentary, entitled League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis, was produced by Frontline and broadcast on PBS. The film devotes significant attention to the story of Mike Webster and his football-related brain injuries, and the pathologist who examined Webster's brain, Bennet Omalu. The film also looks closely at the efforts of researchers led by Ann McKee at Boston University's Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, where the brains of a number of former NFL athletes have been examined.

The packet contains 40 viewing questions, designed as fill in the blanks to guide the student into understand the main points from the documentary. An answer key is provided. Also included in the resource is a link to the film, the transcript of the film, and several NPR or Democracy Now stories on concussions and football. This lesson is perfect for Language Arts, AP English Language, Physical Education, Sociology, and Forensics classes.
