Product Description
This Disney coming of age story features a courageous young girl who saves her people. Discuss with your students the 11 high-level, short answer and essay questions by pausing at the designated times on the movie guide. See the thumbnails for example questions.

This product includes:
A student movie guide, PDF print version (4 pages)
A student movie guide, PDF digital fillable form version (4 pages)

Note: This includes a beta version of a digital movie guide.
It is intended for a paperless classroom if your students each have a tablet/iPad. Here is a method that worked for me:

1. Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don't already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
2. Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with the students.
3. Ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)

An answer key is not included as many questions are open-ended and encourage students to analyze the film. Many answers will not fit into a 'box'. Students are encouraged to construct their own meaning from the characters' dialogue and behavior. On average, completing this movie guide will require about 30-45 minutes in addition to the length of the movie.

This movie is based loosely on Polynesian mythology. It received some bad press for not being accurate enough in the way the islanders and their gods are portrayed. If you are sensitive to this, I suggest using it as a teaching tool and asking your students to compare the movie to the real history. Perhaps do a short unit on Polynesian history so the record is clear for your students. It may be worth it to have a classroom discussion about movies that are based on real life events and how they shouldn't be considered the historical authority for that event.

Note: If you like Hamilton and Lin-Manuel Miranda's genius then you'll enjoy the original songs he wrote for the movie. If your a super Hamilton fan, the style is unmistakable. I had flashbacks from Hamilton while watching this film : )
