This product is a Murder on a Sunday Morning Viewing Guide
The subject of the documentary is Brenton Butler,a fifteen-year-old boy who was wrongfully accused of murder.
I show this documentary after my class reads "Monster" by Walter Dean Myers.
Students are asked to compare and contrast different aspects of the book and the film and are then asked to fill out a short compare and contrast essay form.

***Warning: The documentary does contain violent images and descriptions, it contains the N word during the court proceeding, and around 1:16 the defense attorney makes a somewhat inappropriate comment.
This product includes the link to the activity on Google Drive as it is a DIGITAL product and completely paperless!
