PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

James Cameron's 2009 film Avatar uses science fiction and a fictional tribe of people, the Na'vi, to demonstrate reasons and methods "modern" societies attempt to and successfully colonize indigenous societies. It is 2154 and the people of Earth have depleted their natural resources, so to continue to thrive and advance themselves, and with the belief the Na'vi are in need of advancement. Avatar invites viewers to see the effects of colonization through the Na'vi's perspective, as well as, the perspective of the man sent to help take their resources and change them.

This viewer's guide offers pre-viewing, viewing, and post viewing written discussion questions. Teachers can facilitate discussion at anytime throughout the guide. After pre-viewing and post viewing is recommended. The guide also invites students to work in pairs/small groups prior to post viewing discussion.
