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 La Traviata.
Violetta was a member of the "demimonde," women who gave their favors to wealthy "protectors" under arrangements that were often contractual. Women of the demimonde were often independent and sometimes lived lavishly. While the courtesans of the demimonde had a social standing well below that held by women of unquestioned "virtue" and respectability, they were not considered prostitutes. The demimonde was an institution in France for many decades.
The Learning Guide to the film La Traviata 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.
