Hoosiers tells the story of the Hickory Huskers basketball team in 1950's Indiana who become a Cinderella story as a tiny school competing in the single-class state basketball tournament. With the help of a new coach, the team and community discover the values of working hard, working together, and believing in themselves.
Each of our movie lessons and activities includes response/discussion questions that students can answer on paper or the teacher can use as starters for whole group discussion. In addition, there is a partner/group activity that takes the principles of the movie and asks students to take action and grow in their own lives. Finally, there is a RAFT (Role-Audience-Format-Topic) writing prompt to help students apply their new knowledge.
