Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a set of discussion questions from the Learning Guide to Bizet's Dream.
Michelle, the young girl character in this film, allowed her imagination to run away with the idea that her father would be like Don Jose, come under the influence of a mysterious woman, and never return home. Is this realistic? Has your imagination ever gone wild making you afraid of something that did not come to pass? How did you deal with that situation?
The Learning Guide to the film Bizet's Dream contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading.
