This download includes the assignment in PDF and MS WORD documents


The convenient one-page handout breaks down 21 film options for students to explore World War Two through film. Directions are provided for students to get parent permission, write a summary, find elements of fiction and find elements of historical accuracy. This could be used as extra credit or as a regular assignment.


The list of 21 film choices provides students with...


1) Film rankings (based on IMDB)

2) Film ratings (R, PG-13, etc.)

3) Whether it is complete historical fiction or based on a true story

4) The Theater of the war that is featured

5) a brief description of the subject or storyline

6) visuals of the film poster or DVD cover


I use it to give my students something to do over Christmas break. Enjoy!
