Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below the first two sections of the Learning Guide to Michael Collins.
Description: This film traces the public career of Michael Collins, the Irish patriot, from his imprisonment after the 1916 Easter Uprising, through his organization of a bloody resistance movement, continuing with his participation in the peace talks that led to home rule without full independence from Great Britain, and concluding with his assassination in the civil war that followed.
Benefits: Michael Collins shows a man's use of violence to obtain freedom for his country and his rejection of violence when a substantial portion of his goals, but not complete victory, can be obtained by negotiation. The film will help to explain how Ireland won freedom from British control after hundreds of years of oppression. But, the movie is useful as a learning tool only if its historical distortions are explained. See the complete Learning Guide for a full explanation. Michael Collins when compared to Gandhi can lead to fascinating discussions about the use and abuse of violence by oppressed peoples.
The Learning Guide to the film Michael Collins contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
