General Lesson Plan for Documentary Lens

Use this general lesson guide to inform your instruction surrounding a documentary. The lesson is made up of five activities. The activities are intentionally general because they are designed to adapted for specific films. While the lesson was originally designed to go with the films on the same site as the plan, they could be used with virtually any film. Additionally, the resource includes a series of questions grouped by theme that could be asked about any film.
