Product Description

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 a “Beyond The True Cost” page that has them read for further background information and another page that asks them to consider economic implications and concepts.

This film asks students to consider the costs of international trade focusing on the “fast fashion” industry. People in developed nations have a taste for cheap clothes that developing nations are willing to fill. But those clothes aren’t as cheap as they seem—they come at a high human and environmental cost.

The True Cost is a 2015 documentary about trading practices of the fashion industry and its impact on the global community.

Film is not included. It can be viewed on Amazon Prime, Netflix, or ordered as a DVD.

You Get:

☑ Three pages of Color-Fill Film Guides to use with the film

☑ One page of information beyond the documentary

☑ One page of Color-Fill Notes to help students reflect on the documentary’s implications and concepts

❯ There are many ways you can use Color-Fill Film Guides in your classroom, but here are a few suggestions:

❶ Assign them as substitute teacher lesson plans. History 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 “Beyond” pages.

❷ 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 Beyond Pages after the film is over.

❸ Time is an issue for most teachers. Use these as an extension either for extra credit or homework to help your students to consider your topic with study further.

❹ Or if you want to enrich your student’s understanding of the events, show it at home, and use the guide for focus and as a springboard for discussion.
