THE ENL VERSION OF "The Wizard of Oz... A Parable on Populism?"!
Bring to life the concept of populism by having your students analyze The Wizard of Oz! This resource is all you need to guide your students through the movie and help them to formulate their own theories on whether or not the story is, or is not, a parable on populism. This resource includes three assignments - reading an article and responding to Discussion questions, writing a brief summary of the movie as they view it, and a summative short-response writing activity in which they use evidence from the assignments and the movie to present their opinion on whether or not they believe the movie is a parable for populism, and compare characters from the movie to the curriculum.
