Color-Fill Film Guides are doodle notes for movies! They are perfect to leave with a sub., give for extension extra-credit, or just to use in class. Students color and answer prompts as they watch the film. The coloring aspect is just enough to help them concentrate. When the film is finished, they have an opportunity to reflect.

The farewell address is a precedent that dates back to George Washington. Harry Truman began the tradition of the televised farewell address. Students will watch President Obama’s, answer questions, fill in quotes, and color. When it is over, they will read highlights from other presidents’ farewell addresses and reflect on them and the message of President Obama’s.

You Get:

1. Two pages of Color-Fill Film Guides to use with the speech

2. One page of the history of past addresses

3. One page of Color-Fill Notes to help students reflect on the speech

4. Answer Key

❯ There are many ways you can use Color-Fill Film Guides in your classroom, but here are a few suggestions:

❶ Assign them as substitute teacher lesson plans. History teachers have a huge amount of content to cover. If you ever have to be out, these guides will ensure that your students’ time is not wasted. They will continue to learn about the time period in question while you are out. Instruct the sub to print the Film-Guide pages front to back. When you return, assign them the “Historicity of” pages.

❷ Use the Film-Guide in class as an assignment after you have taught the topic. Have students consider what you taught them along with the Historicity Of Pages after the film is over.

❸ Time is an issue for most history teachers. Use these as an extension either for extra credit or homework to help your students to consider your topic of study further.

❹ Or if you want to enrich your student’s understanding of historical events, show it at home, and use the guide for focus and as a springboard for discussion.
