Glory tells the story of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw and the Massachusetts 54th Volunteer Regiment, the first regular army regiment of black soldiers commissioned during the Civil War. The historical accuracy of the movie approaches that of a documentary.
The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide to Glory will fill in the historical background, disclose which scenes are accurate and which are not, and reveal two little known blockbuster facts about Colonel Shaw, facts which are not in the movie and that make his sacrifice all the more poignant. The Guide to Glory will help teachers make this information accessible.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below the first two sections of the Learning Guide to Glory.
Description: ... At the beginning of the war, most white Americans believed that blacks could not be disciplined to make good soldiers in a modern war. The belief was that they would run when fired upon or attacked. Colonel Shaw, a white abolitionist, and hundreds of black volunteers in his regiment, gave their lives to prove that black men could fight as well as whites.
Benefits: Glory shows men, black and white, choosing to die for a worthwhile cause. It introduces an important event in U.S. history. The movie, for the most part, is historically accurate. See Helpful Background Section in the full Learning Guide.
The Learning Guide to the film Glory 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.
