Les Misérables is a classic of modern literature.
Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below the Benefits section from the Learning Guide to Les Misérables.
Benefits: The movie will acquaint children with this epic story and with its characters who have become archetypes: Jean Valjean, a man condemned by poverty and classification as a convicted felon but redeemed by the kindness of another and by his own will; Cosette, the child victim of poverty; Bishop Myriel, the social activist who believes in the essential goodness of man; and Javert, the petty, regulation bound, shortsighted bureaucrat who relentlessly and unreasonably pursues a good man for a violation that should have been forgotten long ago.
The Learning Guide to the film Les Misérables 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.
