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 All the President's Men
After the press broke the Watergate story, other institutions of the government joined in the investigation and were instrumental in bringing Nixon's lieutenants to justice and forcing Nixon from office. They included: the Watergate Special Prosecutors, Archibald Cox and Leon Jaworski; U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica, who required that the burglars, particularly James McCord, cooperate with the Special Prosecutor or face heavy prison sentences; and the U.S. Congress, whose televised impeachment hearings led to the vote of the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives to recommend that Nixon be impeached. Facing impeachment, Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974.
The Learning Guide to the film All the President's Men 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.
