"I was, like, the prototypical white Hoosier kid." Connect The Fault In Our Stars to the classic "Hoosiers."
This guide can be used two ways. The first way is as a guide for watching the movie "Hoosiers" with no connection to the book The Fault In Our Stars.
This guide has 10 questions for students to complete as students watch the movie. They are in chronological order. It also has four additional questions that require longer answers and maybe some research (basketball terms).
To use this movie guide a second way, watch the movie to give your students a glimpse of Gus' life as a basketball player and Indiana. This guide contains five follow-up questions that ask students to find connections between these two famous pieces both set in Indiana. (The five questions are on a separate page and if you do not need them, they will not interfere with the other questions).
This guide works well in any class watching the movie, and will serve a substitute teacher well. An answer key is included, and has answers for all questions.
