Color-Fill Film Guides are doodle notes for movies! They are perfect to leave with a sub., give for extension extra-credit, or just to use in class. Students color and answer prompts as they watch the film. The coloring aspect is just enough to help them concentrate. When the film is finished, they have an “Implications of Burning Bed” page that asks them to consider the social and psychological implications of domestic violence.
The Burning Bed chronicles the events surrounding the court case of Francine Hughes, an abused wife who sets her husband’s bed on fire one night after he raped her. He dies in the flames. This movie sheds a light on the horrors of domestic violence and the helplessness the victim often feels. It is an excellent example of the cycle of abuse and the dysfunction of the family unit.
The Burning Bed film is not included. It can be ordered on YouTube or Amazon. The film is not rated, as it was made for TV in 1984, but it does contain mature content and disturbing themes.
Two pages of Color-Fill Film Guides to use with the film
One page of the Implications of the study
One page of Color-Fill Notes to help students reflect on the study’s implications
There are many ways you can use Color-Fill Film Guides in your classroom, but here are three suggestions:
Assign them as substitute teacher lesson plans. Sociology teachers have a huge amount of content to cover. If you ever have to be out, these guides will ensure that your students’ time is not wasted. They will continue to learn about the time period in question while you are out. Instruct the sub to print the Film-Guide pages front to back. When you return, assign them the “Historicity of” pages.
Use the Film-Guide in class as an assignment after you have taught the topic. Have students consider what you taught them along with the Historicity Of Pages after the film is over.
Time is an issue for most history teachers. Use these as an extension either for extra credit or homework to help your students to consider your topic of study further.
Or if you want to enrich your student’s understanding of historical events, show it at home, and use the guide for focus and as a springboard for discussion.
