An in-depth worksheet and response to the 2000 Disney film, "The Emperor's New Groove." Includes an answer key and list of sources and additional resources.
Great for an end-of-the-year movie time or other day when the teacher needs a few minutes to grade or do paperwork while the movie plays; focuses on application and analysis through questions built on multiple tiers of Bloom's taxonomy. Meets standards and is a fun way to teach the following concepts.
This lesson is best for a language arts/literature/reading classroom as it focuses on analysis of the opening "theme song" at the beginning of the film (analyzes symbolism, foreshadowing, hyperbole, vocabulary, etc). There are also questions that connect with health/science and geography/history.
Recommended level: could be adapted to middle school students and lower level high school students; recommendations are included for accommodations with younger/ESL/ELL/special education students and for teachers with limited time.
NOTE: since this lesson was built using Bloom's taxonomy, many of the answers on the answer key say "will vary" and have suggestions and hints for the teacher. This lesson was built to stimulate critical thinking and therefore includes more than simple knowledge-level questions.
• As of the date of creation of this lesson plan, the movie is available to stream on Netflix.
• Time: will probably require 2-3 sessions, depending on your class schedule (block, period, etc).
• Order: I recommend reading over the questions with the students before watching the film and making sure they have their handouts out during the film. Make sure you plan time to review answers with the class aloud after they have answered questions, due to the discussion needed for certain questions.
