Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to The Sound of Music.
On March 12, 1938, Nazi troops peacefully entered Austria to effect the union of Austria and Germany. This was called the "Anschluss." Germany and its friends in Austria claimed that there was a common Austro-German language and culture and that Austria should be a part of the Third Reich. As shown in the movie, the few Austrians who opposed the Anschluss were drowned out in a chorus of "Heil Hitlers."
The Learning Guide to the film The Sound of Music 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.
