When the Game Stands Tall tells the true story of the De La Salle high school football team in California and its 151 game winning streak. The story touches on the role of leadership on a team, the struggles of being a teenager, parent-child relationships, and living by principles. There are many lessons to learn from this truly inspirational story!
Each of our movie lessons and activities includes response/discussion questions that students can answer on paper or the teacher can use as starters for whole group discussion. In addition, there is a partner/group activity that takes the principles of the movie and asks students to take action and grow in their own lives. Finally, there is a RAFT (Role-Audience-Format-Topic) writing prompt to help students apply their new knowledge.
