UNIT FIVE--extra credit films
Lincoln and THe Conspirator are 6 points (very long) and Glory is 5. You must print out the guide and answer in PEN. You may NOT type answers
- Lincoln (Director: Steven Spielberg, 2012) use THIS GUIDE for Lincoln
- Glory (Director: Edward Zwick, 1989) use THIS GUIDE for Glory
- The Conspirator : ( Director: Robert Redford, 2010) use THIS GUIDE for The Conspirator
- Gone with the Wind (Director: Victor Fleming, 1939)-- this is a long, epic film and its Southern bias is strong. However, as a portrait of the southern homefront, it's pretty decent and several kids requested it as an option. Here is the Viewing Guide. I stole it from another teacher, and as it is a pdf, made no changes. However, for our purposes, it is the same number of points as the others. You pick any 10 questions and answer them.
