Product Description
The Men Who Built America - Movie Guide Bundle (TV - 2012) is a great resource if you are going to show this documentary series in class. These 4 movie guides each consists of 11 high-level, short answer and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information. Please see the preview file for sample questions from this resource.

This movie guide is intended for:
Episodes 1 - 8 (watch them on Amazon here)
These movie guides can also be used for the TV version of the documentary that combined two episodes into one, for a total of four episodes. If you are using this version of the documentary, use the second time stamp for the second half of each movie guide.

This product includes four individual movie guides that each consist of:
A student movie guide, PDF print version (4 pages)
A student movie guide, PDF digital fillable form version (4 pages)
An answer key (4 pages) IS included with this movie guide, however many answers will vary as students are encouraged to construct their own meaning from the characters' dialogue and behavior.

The digital version is intended for a paperless classroom if your students each have a tablet/iPad. Here is a method that worked for me:
1. Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don't already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
2. Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with the students.
3. Ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)

Here are my tips for using this educational movie guide:
1. Print one, double-sided movie guide for each student
2. Preview the next question on the movie guide as you complete each one, this can help students pay attention to important upcoming events.
3. Pause at the times designated on the movie guide, encourage students to debate, discuss and talk about their ideas before writing their answers.
4. Discourage students from simply copying answers.
5. Randomly choose a student to share their answer and defend it if necessary.
6. If time allows, feel free to rewind and show important parts of the movie again for additional analysis.
7. After completing the short answers, allow 5-10 minutes for each essay question at the end of the film.
8. On average, this movie guide will require about 45-60 minutes in addition to the length of the movie.
