Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans,, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Schindler's List.
Schindler had married his wife, Emilie, in 1928. He was tall, handsome and had an eye for women. He was not faithful in his marriage. The film omits the role that Emilie Schindler played in Schindler's conversion to antifascism and in helping to care for the Schindlerjuden. Emilie fully supported what her husband did for his workers. She cooked and cared for the sick. She earned praise and a reputation of her own. She has written a book about her life with Schindler, entitled Where Light and Shadow Meet.
The Learning Guide to the film Schindler's List 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.
