70 Questions based on the Spike Lee movie Malcolm X starring Denzel Washington.
ABOUT THE MOVIE
Malcolm X is an excellent movie for U.S. history classes. It covers the major topics of Civil Rights struggle, African American leaders, Black Nationalism, and the era of the 1960s.
TWO QUESTION FORMATS MAKE DIFFERENTIATION EASY!
These Malcolm X movie worksheets include two different format options to help make instruction and assessment that much easier for busy teachers. All questions are provided both as multiple choice problems and also as open-ended questions.
This dual format approach will give you an "easy" or "basic" set of questions as well as a more challenging set so that you can instantly adapt the material to the right level for your classes.
TEACHER CONVENIENCE FEATURES
All questions are arranged chronologically -- in "movie order," -- so that you can easily use a "chunk" of them to match a specific portion of the film.
In addition to full answer keys, you will also get several different format and delivery options.
--- .rtf for use in word processing programs so that you can customize the movie viewing unit to match your own curriculum
--- .tst for use with Examview, CPS, Insight 360, and online learning management systems such as Edmodo, Schoology, and Haiku. These .tst files allow you to deliver questions electronically using computers or "clickers." No need to type them all in again -- the work has already been done for you!
--- .bnk for use with Examview. The .bnk lets you make a master test that combines these questions with your own files. For example, you could combine a testbank file that came with your textbook with this file and you would be able to instantly create a test that assessed the textbook presentation AND the movie all at once.
WHY USE MALCOLM X MOVIE WORKSHEETS?
These questions are perfect for assessing how well students paid attention to the movie, and they can also be used as a springboard to preview important points in the movie or to discuss it with the class afterwards.
You can have students take notes during the movie and use them with these questions afterwards, or require them to do the questions from memory only -- or use the questions as a worksheet during viewing.
The possibilities aren't endless, but there are a lot of them -- all with little to no work needed on your part.
