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 Stalin.
Tens of millions of Soviet citizens died as a result of Stalin's policies. For example, in the Ukraine, the "breadbasket" of the Soviet Union, he starved millions of peasants to death by taking virtually all of their grain and selling it to buy foreign machinery with which to launch his industrialization campaign. Stalin was responsible for the deaths of more of his countrymen than the number of people that Adolf Hitler killed in the concentration camps.
The Learning Guide to the film Stalin 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.
