These movies are heartwarming cinematic versions of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel of coming of age in the United States of the 1860s. TeachWithMovies.com recommends that children read the novel, Little Women, before they see either of these movies.
The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide to Little Women will help teachers and parents introduce children to the very mild effects of the Civil War on the Union home front, the coming of age of four sisters, the ravages of scarlet fever in the days before antibiotics, and the difficulties of a female writer in the nineteenth century. Little Women can also be used as a platform to discuss the American Transcendentalists.

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 Little Women.
Scarlet fever is a highly infectious disease caused by a strain of the streptococcus bacterium. It gains entrance to the body through the nose or mouth by exposure to droplets from the coughing or sneezing of infected individuals. It can also be spread through direct contact or from using infected utensils. Scarlet fever usually strikes children between the ages of two and ten.
The Learning Guide to the film Little Women 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.
