This product is a movie question guide for the Oscar winning movie Gandhi which is available on Amazon or YouTube (type in Gandhi 1982 and the full version should be there). I typically start the movie when Gandhi is on the train heading to South Africa. I skip the opening assassination scene because I find this keeps the students’ attention more. Plus I get to watch their shocked faces at the end of the movie when Gandhi gets shot. (Majority of my students, and most likely yours, have no clue Gandhi was assassinated.) Then I return to the opening assassination scene and funeral procession to end the film.
This film can be used for geography classes to expose students to India or World History/US History classes to explain imperialism and nationalism.
