Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Marie Curie: More Than Meets the Eye.
When WW I broke out, Marie Curie looked for a way to help her adopted country, France. She soon realized that new X-ray technology, just then being introduced, would be beneficial in locating shrapnel and bullets otherwise hidden in the bodies of wounded soldiers. At the time, the French Army had only one portable radiological unit. Marie Curie obtained an appointment as director of the Red Cross radiological service and, largely with donated funds, outfitted a van with X-ray equipment. When she tried to take her X-ray to the front, the French Army did not believe that it had much to learn from a woman about treating war wounds, even if that woman had won a Nobel Prize. The army relented only after the doctors at the front line hospitals saw how many lives the new technology could save.
The Learning Guide to the film Marie Curie: More Than Meets the Eye 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.
