Hitler: The Rise of Evil Movie Viewing Worksheets -- 70 Fill-In Problems -- Fully Editable

(0)
These Hitler: The Rise of Evil worksheets are designed to be used by students as they watch the film. Students will pay better attention to the movie and will focus in on important details as they solve the problems included in the activity. USING THESE HITLER THE RISE OF EVIL MOVIE WORKSHEETS The approach here is cloze, also known as fill-ins: Key statements from the film's script are included on a worksheet, with important words or phrases blocked out. Students are to fill in the missing words or phrases as they watch the film. I have used these worksheets with my classes and have found them to be highly successful at helping students follow the movie better and feel accountable for the class time spent on the movie. Students stay on task more when they feel accountable. As every teacher knows, some students treat an instructional movie as though it were free time. These worksheets will help discourage that notion. The worksheet is several pages long and has 70 cloze (fill-in-the-blank) problems to be solved while students watch the 3 hour-long film. The problems to be solved often guide students to historically significant items, helping them to gain a better understanding of the importance and context of terms such as: Communist, Versailles, Fuhrer, Munich, putsch, swastika, Reichstag, chancellor... and many more! Teacher convenience is a hallmark of my products! Accordingly, I have organized student materials and teacher materials in several ways so that you have a variety of options. Student Materials: Two worksheet versions are provided for your convenience: 1) Re-usable. Make one class set and use it with multiple groups over multiple years. Save on paper, ink, and the hassle of making printouts! 2) Consumable. If you prefer to let students write directly on the worksheets, use this version! Teacher Materials: Two answer keys are provided to you: 1) Answers provided in context for use in class discussions of the material. This answer key includes timestamps of when each key statement occurs during the movie. This answer key is probably the more convenient one if you have students use the consumable worksheets. 2) A more traditional linear answer key to make correcting student work simpler. This answer key is probably more convenient if you have students use the re-usable worksheets.

The Help: Worksheets, Tests, and Movie Guide

All good teachers know that many students respond better when they can fully immerse themselves in a topic -- but they also know that all too often, students regard a movie shown in class as "free time" or even "nap time." To keep students on their toes and hold them accountable when watching The Help, use this comprehensive movie guide. Students are guided through the action on screen by filling out worksheets as they go -- or can be tested afterwards using the same questions. Teachers have their choice of presenting students with multiple choice questions or with more challenging free-answer versions of the questions, and to make life even better, the free-answer questions are presented on both consumable worksheets and ones designed to be re-used over and over. Convenience Features of these The Help Movie Worksheets For ease of use, the movie is divided into four segments -- each one has a separate worksheet. This lets teachers hold kids accountable just for the sections of the movie they were present to see. The movie guide also contains a solid selection of discussion questions that can be used after the whole movie has been viewed. These are appropriate not just for class debates, but also for formal essays and other types of presentations. Historical Elements featured in The Help Movie Guide The Help is work of fiction, but the action is set in the Deep South during the Civil Rights Movement -- even touching upon the assassination of Medgar Evers. The movie makes history come alive immersing students in the world of race relations that prevailed in the South and asking important questions about both history and society. The Help can provide an excellent introduction to a unit on the Civil Rights Era, helping students to feel connected to -- and invested in -- the events of this key period in American history. Where to find the film that goes with these The Help Movie Worksheets The Help is available on DVD and also on various streaming services such as Netflix. This movie guide will transform it from "just a film" into a true learning experience. Thanks for reading this far -- I hope you download the preview and enjoy using the materials!

America the Story of US Episode 8 Quiz and Worksheet: Boom

(0)
60 Multiple Choice Questions on Episode 8 of America: The Story of US America: The Story of US is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the United States in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes. This teaching packet covers Episode 8: “Boom," which means it covers the advent of the petroleum and automobile era in American and events through to the 1920s including the Chicago Race Riot, Red Summer, the Great Migration, Prohibition, and Al Capone. Using any of the series’ episodes in class opens up several useful possibilities. They are so well presented that they are easily understood by students. This in turn means that episodes can actually be used as an introduction to a topic or a unit. On the other hand, they also make excellent reinforcers, so some teachers will want to show the episodes after the end of a chapter or unit for use as a review or recap. ABOUT THIS TEACHING PACKET I’ve kept this episode versatility in mind when making these materials. This teaching resource contains both a worksheet and a test on the episode it covers. These two components are based on different approaches to the video: • The student viewing worksheet has 50 multiple choice questions, all presented in video order. These questions are fairly detailed. Certainly, many students will have good enough recall to be able to complete the worksheet after the episode has been shown, but because of the detailed nature of the questions, some teachers may want to use the worksheet as a “during-viewing” activity that will help students track information and stay on task . • The 10-question test, on the other hand, is designed to help students synthesize the episode’s information and see larger patterns that span different sections of it. My intent when writing the test was to focus solely on the “big issues” that arise from the targeted timespan of American history. Students who have paid attention to the video should definitely have mastered these basic, fundamental issues from the targeted time period. All test questions are also multiple choice. • Two answer keys are provided for all questions. One is designed for fast grading. The other one provides the full context of question and answer to help teachers review material out loud or facilitate class discussions of the material. DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES Because the worksheet and test take these different approaches, teachers can also use them to differentiate instruction. keywords: Texas, oil drilling, prospecting, Spindletop, Henry Ford, mass production, assembly line, Great Migration, suburbs, Los Angeles aqueduct, Hollywood, Owens Valley, Chicago Race Riots, Red Summer, Prohibition, 18th Amendment, Al Capone

North & South Industrial Revolution Movie Worksheets and Guide

(0)
Looking for an *excellent* Industrial Revolution movie? Look no further than North & South, now playing on Netflix! With these North and South worksheets, you'll easily be able to assess your students' mastery of key plot points and real industrial revolutions problems/conditions. ABOUT THE TV MINISERIES NORTH & SOUTH (This is the BBC North & South, all about industrialization, *not* the American Civil War miniseries also called North and South) North & South is a 2004 BBC television production that brings to vivid life Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel of the same name. As such, it is an excellent portrayal of the Industrial Revolution, taking viewers inside not only a working cotton mill in approximately 1850, but also showcasing in detail the living and working conditions that textile workers experienced in northern England at this time. As the title indicates, the movie also delves into conditions in the still-agricultural South at this time, which makes the movie ideal for demonstrating the stark difference in English life that resulted from industrialization. It also makes an excellent tie-in to teaching the Romantics as a reaction against industrialization in favor of the beautiful, green landscapes characterizing the non-industrialized South at this time. Before I found North & South, I couldn’t come up with a good movie to illustrate this key period. As soon as I first saw it, I knew my long search was over. The movie has a romantic frame plot that is hugely engaging for high school students -- they enter into the plot emotionally and literally moan, groan, and cheer as the protagonists suffer through the trials of falling in love. And because the students are so engaged and interested, they really pay attention! That means they absorb a lot of wonderful historical detail, including:  The challenges inherent in forming an early union  The suffering and dynamics associated with strikes  The problems encountered by manufacturers, too  The values and morals of Victorian society  The difficulties ordinary people experience with market forces in action as capitalism takes full sway of the economy  Dreadful living conditions in crowded industrial cities  The reality of working in a cotton mill, including the use of child labor, what happens when a worker falls ill, and the likelihood of fires About the only drawback I have found to using North & South in class is that the full movie lasts four hours (it was a TV miniseries). Given the wealth of useful history it presents, however, I consider it four hours very well spent.

Selma: Movie Worksheets, Essay Questions, and Discussion Prompts

Few movies have captured Dr. Martin Luther King so thoroughly as the Academy Award-winning "Selma," which details the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of the landmark Civil Rights movement Selma-to-Montgomery march for voting rights. A great movie is one thing, but making it work in class can be another. That's where these Selma Movie Worksheets come in. Providing more than 60 fill-in-the-blank problems based on the movie characters' statements, it makes the movie a lot more accessible to students, helping them understand the people and events far more thoroughly than they otherwise would. Since students need to fill these out as they watch, the movie worksheets not only hold students accountable for paying attention, they also help them learn *more* as they take in the events of Selma in 1965! ---All problems focus in on key terms and phrases that really matter for understanding the Civil Rights era. ---All problems provide students with the name of the character delivering the dialog, so it's much easier to keep track of who is who and who did what! MORE THAN JUST WORKSHEETS The Selma Movie Worksheets set also contains a wealth of follow-up prompts that can be used as project assignments, discussion starters, essay topics, or research prompts. EVER WONDER ABOUT THE HISTORICAL ACCURACY OF A MOVIE SHOWN IN CLASS? With these Selma Movie Worksheets, the research into historical accuracy is already done for you. Teacher resource materials in the packet include a brief discussion of the main historical issues critics have identified with the movie, as well as helpful links to places online where teachers can learn more if they wish. In general, however, Selma was praised for its high degree of historical accuracy, which makes it an excellent movie to use in class. Perfect for Black History Month or Martin Luther King Day, "Selma" would also fit well into any unit on the Civil Rights Movement / 1960s or one that focuses on President Lyndon Baines Johnson.

MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA WORKSHEETS ARE DESIGNED FOR CLASSROOM CONVENIENCE This worksheet set contains 4 multiple-choice worksheets, each covering one 80-85 minute episode of the series. However, because a class period is frequently less than an hour, each of these worksheets is also divided into a first half and last half. This will let teachers easily show a segment and review answers all within a single class period. EASILY WORKS WITH BOTH WAYS THE SERIES IS SHOWN The Netflix version of The Men Who Built America uses these 80-85 minute-long episodes. However, sometimes when the series airs on the History Channel, it is presented as eight 40-45 minute shorter episodes instead of four "double episodes." Because I have split the double episodes in half when making the worksheets, however, this worksheet set will still work perfectly, even if your classroom showing uses the eight episode structure. WHAT YOU THESE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA WORKSHEETS INCLUDE ----More than 65 questions covering Episode 1 ----More than 60 questions covering Episode 2 ----More than 50 questions covering Episode 3 ----More than 70 questions covering Episode 4 plus: A final exam about the entire series: 80 questions drawn from the previous episode-based sets Hundreds of questions in all!

The African Americans Many Rivers to Cross Episode 4 Worksheet: 1896-1940

(0)
The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, is an award-winning six-part documentary series by noted historian Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Covering from about the year 1500 through to the new millennium, the series addresses in a detailed yet entertaining way the challenges faced by African Americans throughout these centuries as well as their many triumphs. Each episode lasts approximately one hour, making the series a convenient one to work into a typical high-school class period. About this African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross Worksheet This worksheet provides students with 45 fill-in-the-blank problems for them to solve as they watch Episode 4 of The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, which covers the period of 1896 to 1940 in African American history. Summary of Episode 4: Making a Way Out of No Way "Making a Way Out of No Way" portrays the Jim Crow era, when African Americans struggled to build their own worlds within the harsh, narrow confines of segregation. At the turn of the 20th century, a steady stream of African Americans left the South, fleeing the threat of racial violence, and searching for better opportunities in the North and the West. Leaders like Ida B. Wells, W.E.B. Du Bois, Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey organized, offering vastly different strategies to further black empowerment and equality. Yet successful black institutions and individuals were always at risk. At the same time, the ascendance of black arts and culture showed that a community with a strong identity and sense of pride was taking hold in spite of Jim Crow. “The Harlem Renaissance” would not only redefine how America saw African Americans, but how African Americans saw themselves. Teacher Convenience Features Included in this The African Americans Worksheets Packet: ---Time-stamps option for all problems ---A fast-grade answer key ---A full-context answer key

Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial Video Worksheets and Primary Source Study -- PDF Version

(0)
BRING THE AFTERMATH OF WWII TO LIFE USING THESE NUREMBERG WORKSHEETS AND THE COORDINATING HISTORY CHANNEL VIDEO: NUREMBERG, TYRANNY ON TRIAL The Nuremberg Trials were a key moment in world history, demonstrating for the first time that crimes against humanity could and would be prosecuted. Today's World Court is a direct descendant of the Nuremberg Tribunals. With Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial from the History Channel and these no-prep worksheets, you can help your students master the aftermath of WWII like never before! INFORMATION FOR THE TEACHER Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial is a short documentary produced by the History Channel. Because it lasts only 46 minutes, it fits perfectly into a typical class period in a middle school or high school. Teachers who have class periods that last about an hour should have time to both show the video and review answers, all during the same class session. Those who can afford to devote two periods to a more in-depth study of the Nuremberg Trials can show the video one day and discuss the answers in more detail the next day. WHERE TO FIND THE VIDEO Nuremberg: Tyranny on Trial is available online at a variety of streaming sites. The best way to find where it may currently be available is to do a simple Google search for the title. It also airs on the History Channel on an infrequent basis and is available for sale on DVD. Teachers who prefer hard media may find the best prices at sites like Amazon and eBay, where used DVDs for educational programs are often put up for sale. ABOUT THESE WORKSHEETS There are 48 multiple choice questions included in this set. These are continuously numbered and are presented in video order so that students can answer questions as they follow along watching the program. However, the questions are split up into 3 separate worksheets, each focusing on a particular phase of the Nuremberg Trials: background information; the Major War Criminals Trial itself; and Verdict, Sentence, and Legacy. This matches the structure of the video, which moves through those three main topics in order. To provide teachers with an easy differentiation option, all 48 questions are also provided in a free-response format, which is considerably more challenging than the multiple choice version. A primary source political cartoon worksheet is provided as a follow up to viewing, encouraging students to think critically about the details included by the cartoonist and the messages those details are sending.
