Product Description
This package includes pre-viewing activities and post-watching questions from Alternative Classroom for the movie, The Truman Show, starring Jim Carrey.

I have used this activity, or some version of it, in both English Language Arts, as well as Career Studies. It doesn't just focus on the content of the movie; it looks at "reality" TV, as well as ethical and moral ideas via character traits/virtues.

First, it examines what TV shows students find popular and entertaining, as well as what "reality" means in the context of television. I have used "Duck Dynasty" as an example of a "reality" show that may or may not depict real-life events.

Secondly, it views the movie through a lens of character traits, virtues, and moral/ethical issues. The questions are simple enough for most students to be able to answer completely, but broad enough to generate some heated debate.

Please let me know what you think of the product and your feedback/suggestions are welcome.
