Product Description
"Great geniuses have the shortest biographies." Ralph Waldo Emerson (American essayist ~ 1803 - 1882)

Film-Fragen for ten German or German-related popular movies or documentaries on prominent people who have impacted our world.

Queen Victoria ~ She gave her name to an era.

No, she's not German. But she's half German.

Did you know that Queen Victoria's mother was German ?

That Victoria spoke only German until she was three years old ?

That she and her husband, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, spoke and wrote to each other in German ?

That they raised their children to speak German ?

The film 'The Young Victoria' starts with her early life and goes up to her becoming queen and marrying Prince Albert. Victoria is revealed as a feisty young woman who did, indeed, find true love rather than make a marriage of convenience.

Like Schubert ?

Then you'll truly enjoy this film and the beautiful music in it.

Ever heard of Princess Diana ? Then you'll enjoy 'Sissi Forever My Love' - a film about the Empress Elisabeth of Austria - the Princess Diana of her day. Unfortunately, like Diana, her fairy-tale life was far from happy.

The films included in this Pac are:

1. Neiman Marcus: The Last of the Merchant Kings (A+E Biography)
2. Houdini: Unlocking The Mystery (History Channel)
3. Sissi Forever My Love (Romy Schneider)
4. Beethoven: The Sound And The Fury (A+E Biography)
5. Ringling Brothers (A+E Biography)

6. Woman In Gold (Helen Mirren)
7. Wolfgang Puck: Recipe For Success (A+E Biography)
8. The Young Victoria (Emily Blunt)
9. Bach's Fight For Freedom (Ted Dykstra)
10. Patton (George C. Scott)

* Bonus Films *

A) Biography: Bobby Fischer (A+E Biography available at Wal-Mart)

B) Jesse Owens (PBS American Experience Biography available at PBS.org)
~ He won 4 Gold Medals in track and field at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games and sealed his place in Olympic history at a time when African Americans did not have many advantages.

Looking for something special for German American Day or German American Week ?

Need something unique for Black History Month ?

Want to energize your class when things seem to be dragging ?

Is your administration stressing 'Teaching Across The Curriculum' ?

Here's an easy way to do it. Each Film-Fragen sheet has twenty follow-along questions in English that go with the film. These can be used as enrichment to a topic or as a substitute lesson plan (or emergency lesson plan).

Having students select from multiple choice answers allows more time for their eyes to stay on the film (and not spend it looking down writing out answers) and, thus, not miss important moments in the film.

These films are entertaining and informative, and offer exposure to the contributions German speakers or those of German or Austrian heritage have made throughout history.

Supplementary overheads are included to give background information on some films to be shown before viewing so that students know the facts behind the film.

Answer keys are provided for all films. (68 pages)

* Of Special Note *
Biographies are particularly poignant when they are memoirs, life stories recounted by those who lived through an era many of us only know from history books or movies. Here are some memorable ones.

'Boy With A White Flag' by Karl Heinz Strick

'Once My Name Was Sara' by Betty Grebenschikoff

'The Hitler Years Through The Eyes Of A Child' by Charlotte Self

'Why Can't Somebody Just Die Around Here?' by Gerhard Maroscher
