Product Description
This viewing guide is to be used while viewing episode #306 (Life on an Indian Reservation) of Morgan Spurlock’s reality show, 30 Days. The purpose of 30 Days is to show Spurlock’s experiences immersing himself in a lifestyle with which he is unfamiliar. In this case, he spends 30 days living on the Navajo Indian reservation. This episode aired in July of 2008.

Revised and improved October 2017, the viewing guide is comprised of 18 film questions & 3 questions for class reflection and discussion. Students watch the film, answer the questions and prepare for class discussion. An answer key is now provided for this product!

We watched this film with our 8th graders as we began Sherman Alexie's novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian. It provided context for them to understand what the setting of the book might be like. The students LOVE watching this film; it opened their eyes to many things that they did not know about. (And we must admit that Spurlock does a REALLY GOOD job of capturing his reservation experience. It's a fantastically interesting film.)

The running time of the film is 43 minutes and you can access the episode here:
