This is a complete set of questions (165) to provoke and test students' learning while studying the movie The Help directed by Tate Taylor.
I have divided the film into six parts. Each part is approx. 20 minutes long. All sections start with a chapter beginning on the DVD. I usually show a section of the movie and then follow up with the associated questions.
Some of the questions are basic fact-finding. Others require students to understand why characters act in a particular way, or say specific things. Many seek opinions from students on action or character, and encourage them to justify those opinions. In total there are 165 questions, with many having multiple parts.
To make the handout look interesting and to help students focus, I have included stills from the movie.
Depending on the student body (weak, strong, EAL etc...), I use the questions as work to be written in class or at home, or to kick off in-class discussion. The idea is to draw students' attention to details important in the plot, or items which shed light on themes or characters. Students who have completed this activity will have an excellent understanding of the film.
This is a Word document, so can be edited to suit your class. It's a 10 page handout for students. The answer key (11 pages) is also included.
