April 18-20, 2018 (Glory)

Georgia Studies: 

 

As a set up to next week’s Civil War Battle Project, students will be watching the Academy Award winning movie, Glory, starring Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman and Matthew Broderick. This story will give the students a wonderful view of the impact Frederick Douglass had in not only the creation of the first all-black regiment in American history, but also on the outcome of the American Civil War.

While viewing, students will be responsible to answer some guided viewing questions. This will be collected after the movie on Friday, and the assignment will count as a quiz grade: Glory Questions-1r3wusp 

Those students who have won a Movie Pass from previous competitions will be exempt from the viewing questions and will be allowed to eat a snack they bring during the movie. 

No HMWK this week!
