Green Book (2018) shares the true story of Dr. Shirley, an African American concert pianist, who hires Tony 'Lip' Vallelonga, a bouncer to be his driver during a tour in the American South in 1962.

This movie is many things-- an important conversation-starter about racism. It is also a powerful and well-acted movie that is both provocative and humorous.

Now, you can add a rich new way to appreciate it to your collection-- a comprehensive movie guide that is linked to standards. Discuss the themes, examine the connections to history, and racism, write a movie review, or tease apart the plot and the director's choices.

This collection of nine activities is designed for use before, and after viewing Green Book(2018). Plus, an extensive list of extension activities linked to primary source documents, articles, videos and audio. You can pick and choose which activities to use, and in what order. Activities are designed to appeal to a variety of learning styles and formats, and are differentiated to allow for maximum flexibility.

Green Book Movie Guide includes:

1. Two preview activities for before students see the movie, one which sets the historical context and examines why the Green Book was necessary.

2. A New Ending/ A New Scene-- A writing and sketching activity for students to consider the plot and pacing of the movie.

3. Writing Prompts-- Responding to themes and events in the movie.

4. Movie Review- Students review the movie. Keep it short or have them write an extended review. Rubric included.

5. Quiz- 2 pages of multiple-choice questions, 1 page of short answer questions. Answer keys included.

6. Extension Activities- historical figures and topics mentioned in the movie with links so your students can learn more about them. Included are links for lessons about race, racism, and police violence.

7. 2 different Discussion Activities- prompts for a rich discussion about the movie's plot and themes. Each activity has a different format and a different set of prompts.

8. Respond to a review of the movie. Links to reviews are provided, and two printables to guide students to identify and respond to the main points.
