The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
is a movie based on Rebecca Skloot's best-selling novel. This film, available on HBO, shows Skloot's research into the fascinating life of Henrietta Lacks and her family. Learn about medical ethics and the history of the HeLa cells that changed the world with this fantastic drama.
This movie guide contains three pages of open-ended questions that are designed to keep students engaged and hold them accountable while watching the film. The worksheets ask questions that are easy to answer while watching the movie but not so complicated that they require a great deal of writing. They are also very specific to the movie, and therefore difficult to Google!
There is a detailed answer key for all movie questions.
Additionally, there are three writing prompts that will spark deeper thinking into the themes of the movie.
