This movie is used to reinforce the value of education and the power of caring teachers. I use it at the end of a unit in sociology pertaining to education. Your students will identify with at least one character in this movie and you might connect to Mr. Holland! This is a “Rocky” movie for teachers and can drive great classroom discussion about a variety of sociological topics. There are several pause points that will give you an opportunity to discuss and do some quick research.
This lesson includes an answer key and 46 questions that guide your students through the action. Questions are divided into two parts, multiple choice and sequencing. When shown in class, it takes three traditional (50 minute) classes. You will have to purchase the movie.
