Description

Selma, Lord, Selma Movie Guide | Worksheet | Questions | Google Classroom (TV - 1999) challenges students to connect with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s movement through the lens of 11 year old Sheyann. Analyze the struggle between using King's non-violent approach and reacting violently to the injustice they face. Explore the arguments some people in Selma, Alabama have for not wanting to join the movement. Discuss the ever present conflict of wanting to stand up for what is right and wanting to stay silent and safe. Finally, challenge students to research and react to primary source content of Bloody Sunday (03/07/1965) and President Johnson's Civil Rights speech (03/15/1965).

Note: This is movie guide is meant to accompany the Wonderful World of Disney's episode from 1999. Please see the movie description on IMDb here.

Check the preview file for high resolution sample questions to see if this movie guide is suitable for your students. This resource consists of 11 high-level, short answer reflection and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information.

Google Classroom Distance Learning Tips:

  1. Create an assignment using the Google Form
  2. Use the screen sharing tool on your conference calling software to play the movie
  3. Pause the movie at each question to give students time to write/discuss
  4. Make sure students input their name, so when you open your copy of the form, you can see each student's individual response they submitted
  5. Note: If you are using the movie guide for multiple classes and want to separate
  6. responses by class, create multiple copies of the google form with file names such as [Title]MovieGuideClassPeriod[2] and then create assignments for each copy of the Google Form movie guide

General Tips for Using this Movie Guide:

  1. Print one, double-sided movie guide for each student
  2. Preview the next question on the movie guide as you complete each one, this can help students pay attention to important upcoming events.
  3. Pause at the times designated on the movie guide, encourage students to debate, discuss and talk about their ideas before writing their answers.
  4. Discourage students from simply copying answers.
  5. Randomly choose a student to share their answer and defend it if necessary.
  6. If time allows, feel free to rewind and show important parts of the movie again for additional analysis.
  7. After completing the short answers, allow 5-10 minutes for each essay question at the end of the film.
  8. On average, this movie guide will require about 45-60 minutes in addition to the length of the movie.

Digital PDF Version Tips

  • It is intended for a paperless, 1:1 tablet/iPad classroom
  • Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don't already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
  • Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with students.
  • When complete, ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)
