Hidden Figures centers on the struggles of three African-American women that worked for NASA during a pivotal time in American History. As you watch, you might find it interesting that as America struggles in the race to space, they also have many problems on earth with the topic of race. Hidden Figures is a great movie that touches upon many topics: American History Civil Rights Movement Race Gender Equity Cold War Race to Space Math Science Careers I use it in a U.S. History and Geography class but could substantiate using it in Psychology, Sociology, Math, or Science classes. This lesson includes a movie review (three days), an answer key, and 33 questions that guide your students through the action. You will have to purchase the movie. Teacher Note: Students can identify with the young characters in this movie. The entertainment qualities of the movie also spark student interest. Leverage both to scaffold students into more complicated concepts in your course. The movie also serves as great background information that you can use as conversation starters in class. These conversations are the seeds of relationship building and help you make it more than a movie, you will make it memorable.
