This .doc file has questions for students to answer as they watch the movie Thirteen Days, which is about the Cuban Missile Crisis. It also includes a character guide so they can keep track of who's who. This guide also helps students see the different types of advisers the President has (cabinet, military, EOP, etc.) The questions are very basic and not thought provoking. But they do help the students stay alert during the movie and highlight key plot details so that deeper discussion and understanding are possible. The answers are included (they are colored white).
