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 Mulan.
The Great Wall of China stretches 4500 miles across what was once the northern border of China. The individual sections were connected by the Qin dynasty more than 2200 years ago (221-206 B.C.). The wall was built mostly by the forced labor of peasants and captives. Armies were garrisoned to stand guard over the workers as well as to defend against invasion. Each successive Chinese dynasty improved the wall.
The Learning Guide to the film Mulan 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.
