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 an “Implications of The Truman Show” page that asks them to consider the sociological implications of the film.
The Truman Show is the story of a man who has unknowingly been the star of a reality television show his entire life. The film provides a valuable look at the sociological concepts of socialization, the agents of socialization, total institutions, social reality, and role-taking.
The Truman Show film is not included. It can be ordered on YouTube or Amazon. It is also available for free streaming to Amazon Prime customers. The film is rated PG.
1. Two pages of Color-Fill Film Guides to use with the film
2. One page of the Implications of the film for socialization
3. One page to consider the agents of socialization on Truman’s life
4. One page of Color-Fill Notes to help students reflect on the study’s implications
5. Answer Key
There are many ways you can use Color-Fill Film Guides in your classroom, but here are three suggestions:
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 “Historicity of” pages.
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 Historicity Of Pages after the film is over.
Time is an issue for most history teachers. Use these as an extension either for extra credit or homework to help your students to consider your topic of study further.
Or if you want to enrich your student’s understanding of historical events, show it at home, and use the guide for focus and as a springboard for discussion.
