Attention ALL world language teachers!
This packet accompanies an awesome documentary located on Netflix called "On the Way to School." It follows four students and their journeys to school. It includes the stories of Jackson, from Kenya, Zahira, from Morocco, Carlos, from Argentina, and Samuel, from India. This opened up some great discussion for my students, and THEY LOVED IT! In their essays, they all wrote about how thankful they are for school, as other students don't have many of the advantages that they have.
As foreign language teachers, we get the awesome opportunity to teach our students not only another language, but another culture and part of the world. Though this video does not focus on the culture of one particular language, it does beautifully portray the lives of students around the world. What better way to open students' eyes to the world and the beautiful people in it?
This product includes:
- Discussion Questions for before the documentary (1 page)
- Fill-in Notes (2 pages)
- Discussion Questions for after the documentary (1 page)
- Brainstorming page for writing assignment: Compare & Contrast (1 page)
