Description

Although this documentary is over a decade old, it is still a powerful, thought provoking film to show to your students. Follow Morgan Spurlock as he eats only food from McDonald's for 30 days. Challenge your students to analyze his experience and apply them to their lives.

Discuss with your students the 11 high-level, short answer and essay questions by pausing at the designated times on the movie guide. See the thumbnails for example questions and the preview file for higher resolution sample questions.

Note: Although this movie is rated PG there are a few instances of inappropriate language. You may want to preview the film and plan on skipping the following scenes. (Times are approximate)

26:40 - 26:45 - F word

41:05 - 41:10 - S word

1:15:45 - 1:16:15 Personal details about their sex life

An answer key is not included as many questions are open-ended and encourage students to analyze the film. Many answers will not fit into a 'box'. Students are encouraged to construct their own meaning from the characters' dialogue and behavior.

This product includes:

  • A student movie guide, PDF print version (4 pages)
  • A student movie guide, PDF digital fillable form version (4 pages)

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 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)
