Product Description
At the end of the year after the AP English exam, I lead students through a film study of the 2002 production, The Count of Monte Cristo. They love it! But we don't just watch the film- we analyze it as we go, track character details, discuss the themes, and write an essay about the various thematic tensions in the film. These materials are ready for your copy machine! Hit print!

Instructions: for maximum fun, I cut up the eight thematic discussion questions and place them in plastic Easter eggs or Ziploc bags. Then, I place one Easter egg (or baggie) on each table and have kids discuss them for 3-5 minutes. When I call time, they throw the Easter egg or pass the baggie to the next table and begin again. When all tables have discussed all prompts, we circle up and have a group discussion of key insights and overall takeaways. Then, we begin the film. Note: this could also be done at the end of the film.

Examples of questions:
1. When we lose our faith, how do we get it back?
2. Is seeking revenge justified or malicious?
