Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below the Benefits section of the Learning Guide to Persuasion.
Benefits: The movie is an excellent introduction to Jane Austen's novel Persuasion. A college level teacher has reported that her students are more interested in reading another Jane Austen novel, Sense and Sensibility, after they have seen a film version. When tested against a control group who only read the novel, students who had seen the film before reading the book had a better understanding of the characters and the plot. Viewing this movie before reading the novel Persuasion should have the same result.
(See "Emma Thompson's Sense and Sensibility as Gateway to Austen's Novel" by Cheryl L. Nixon, contained in Jane Austen in Hollywood, Edited by Linda Troost and Sayre Greenfield, 1998, University of Kentucky Press, pages 140 - 147.)
The Learning Guide to the film Persuasion 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.
