Soul Surfer tells the heroic story of Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm during a shark attack. Already a talented surfer, Bethany refuses to let the loss of her arm keep her from pursuing her dream. However, the greatest lesson that Bethany will learn is that fulfillment not only comes from pursuing your own dreams, but inspiring others to chase their dreams as well.
Each of our movie lessons and activities includes response/discussion questions that students can answer on paper or the teacher can use as starters for whole group discussion. In addition, there is a partner/group activity that takes the principles of the movie and asks students to take action and grow in their own lives. Finally, there is a RAFT (Role-Audience-Format-Topic) writing prompt to help students apply their new knowledge.
