This package is designed for two purposes. First, it is an excellent way to start a year, a new quarter, new semester, etc- to either set the stage for the environment of your classroom, or to refresh memories on what the goals are in your overall environment. This can be accomplished by having the students complete the attached guide and diagram, and then engaging in the class discussion at the end of the guide. Due to the powerful and surprising end to this movie, it opens a deep and meaningful dialogue.
The second use is to practice writing. Also in this shop is an excellent start to finish process guide to help students write essays, which pairs very nicely with the prompts suggested at the end of the guide. The prompts are valuable in that in the wake of this incredibly emotional movie, students often feel much more motivated to write an essay than they might with a less compelling question at hand.
DISCLAIMER: this product does NOT come with the movie itself, it is only a product designed to pair with it for maximum classroom impact.
