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 The Lion King.
For some, the message of the film may be overpowered by the infectious musical numbers in the "hakuna matata" scenes ("you won't get hurt if you don't care about anything therefore to avoid being hurt, don't care about anything") and the alluring personalities of Timon (the meerkat character) and Pumbaa (the warthog character). After the movie is over, adults should point out that by the end of the film, not only Simba but also Timon and Pumbaa, reject "hakuna matata" in favor of involvement. When Simba returns to face Scar and the hyenas, Timon and Pumbaa help him out.
The Learning Guide to the film The Lion King 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.
