This film shows the ill-fated attack on the Turk lines at Gallipoli by soldiers of ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) during the First World War.
In war the lives of soldiers are often lost due to mistaken tactics, stupidity, and bad luck. Gallipoli shows a cardinal example of this phenomenon. Other themes are the pressure of the rush to enlist, friendship among soldiers, and their courage in the face of sure and imminent death. The movie will introduce children to the roles that Australia and Turkey played in the First World War, trench warfare, and the failed Gallipoli campaign.
The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide provides background information and discussion questions to help teachers and parents explore the themes of this film. Gallipoli, along with the supplementation provided by the Learning Guide, will enhance lessons on the First World War.

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 Gallipoli.
Turkey was a German ally during the First World War. Winston Churchill, at that time First Lord of the British Admiralty, thought that if the British could send the Navy through the Dardanelles, they could point their guns at Istanbul and force Turkey out of the war. But Turkish shore batteries on the Gallipoli Peninsula and mine fields in the Dardanelles frustrated the British plan. Churchill then decided to land troops at Gallipoli to take out the shore batteries.
The Learning Guide to the film Gallipoli 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.
