The following eight-page study guide film packet is used to accompany the Chris Columbus-directed 1990 Christmas family comedy film, Home Alone. It can be used in an English or film studies classroom. The first page contains a list of cast and crew and a background and introduction on the film. The second page is a page that allows viewers to jot and take down their own notes. Pages three, four, five, six, and seven contain comprehension questions to guide the viewer on the work's camera movement, characterization, cinematography, editing, film history, foreshadowing, genre characteristics, plot, sound, story, and themes. The eighth page contains discussion questions on the work's dynamic characterization, plot events, setting significance, and themes. Some questions may need to be edited depending on your students' grade level and/or knowledge of film terminology.
