Color-Fill Film Guides are doodle notes for movies! They are perfect to leave with a sub., give for extension extra-credit, or just to use in class. Students color and answer prompts as they watch the film. The coloring aspect is just enough to help them concentrate. When the film is finished, they have an “Beyond Inequality for All” page that has them read for further background information and another page that asks them to consider economic implications and concepts.
This film asks students to consider fundamentals of economics concepts such as productivity, rational decision making (decisions at the margin, benefits, opportunity costs), economic systems, the key economic systems, and economic values.
Inequality for All is a documentary centered around a lecture series and interviews of Robert Reich, secretary of labor under Bill Clinton. Reich also worked in the Ford and Carter administrations. Reich posits reasons for stagnation of middle class income since the late 1970s despite a growing economy.
This documentary discusses real world economic issues in a highly entertaining format that lends itself to a class discussion on concepts of the fundamentals of economics. Reich is a Keynesian Economist, but in this politically divided era some of his ideas can be misunderstood by students. It is a good idea that this film follow a lesson on economic systems.
Inequality for All film is not included. It can be viewed on Amazon Prime or ordered as a DVD.
☑ Three pages of Color-Fill Film Guides to use with the film
☑ One page of information beyond the documentary
☑ One page of Color-Fill Notes to help students reflect on the documentary’s implications and concepts
☑ Answer Key
There are many ways you can use Color-Fill Film Guides in your classroom, but here are three suggestions:
Assign them as substitute teacher lesson plans. If you ever have to be out, these guides will ensure that your students’ time is not wasted. They will continue to learn about the issues under study while you are out. Instruct the sub to print the Film-Guide pages front to back. When you return, assign them the “Beyond” pages.
Use the Film-Guide in class as an assignment after you have taught the topic. Have students consider what you taught them along with the “Beyond” pages after the film is over.
Time is an issue for most teachers. Use these as an extension either for extra credit or homework to help your students to consider your topic of study further.
Or if you want to enrich your student’s understanding, show it at home, and use the guide for focus and as a springboard for discussion.
