Welcome to the Fahreneheit 9/11 TEACHER'S GUIDE.
The lessons and activities in this GUIDE are designed to help students develop a critical analytical ability, historical perspective, and applied math skills that will open their minds beyond the current issues covered in Fahrenheit 9/11.
The individual units may easily be adapted to many levels and taught across the curriculum - Social Science, [History, Civics, Psychology, Sociology, Political Science, Economics] Language Arts, Humanities, Drama/Theatre, Film, ESL, Media/Journalism, Speech/Communications, Mathematics...
You can review the guide page by page on the website, download a PDF of each section or the whole guide.
So, go do that magic we call education! And, be sure to share, share, share! We would love to hear from you. Send your feedback or ideas to share with other educators to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If it's the former, be aware and don't let it happen.
It would be nice if the e-mail address at the bottom were overwhelmed by Freeper and other messengers!
It would be nicer if Michael Moron moved to Canada where he belongs.
"critical analytical ability"
Three words that are foreign to the wee mind of Michael Moore...
Disturbing. Any parent that allows this kind of indocternation should be ashamed.
"Herr Moore, I yield to your superior capabilities!"
I would rather that my kids not watch that propaganda filthy trash. We rented FarenHYPE 9/11 this past weekend and it was very good. Dispessl the LIES in MM propaganda "movie".
OOpS, tYpO iN mY lAsT pOsT....
ShOuLdA bEeN Dispells.....
I rewatched bowling for columbine after moore lost so bad..
C'mon moore, seriously. Canadians don't lock their doors and never commit crimes. GO!!!!
He worships them. Why won't he go there?!? It makes no sense.
Well, maybe he knows that his propaganda is nonsense.
I say we plant a mole in the Michael Moore website asking for teachers suggestions. I'm sure we at FreeRepublic would LOVE to know teachers who are interested and showing this movie.
Isnt this movie "Rated R" meaning nobody under the age of 18 is to view it without parental supervision? Wouldnt it be ILLEGAL to show this to school children?
Goebbels loved to say that the Nazis owned the youth of Germany. Michael obviously took good notes.
I say we all send Michael some gifts.Im personally going to send him a couple country hams and some pork sausage.
Here are some people that helped with the "teachers guides" and "lesson Plans". Any of these names familiar? Are they teachers or Michael Moore clones? I'd be interested to find which public schools are showing this movie. Here is the thanks from Michael Moore himself.
Thanks to Bill Bigelow, Sandra Childs, and Julie Treick O'Neill for this lesson.
This is an example of why we homeschooled our kids.
I took a English class my junior year in High school titled "Sports & Satire"....
"I wonder if there are really schools where teachers could get by showing this kind of propaganda..."
Yes. Before the election there was outrage by parents at a Jacksonville Florida school where one of the "teachers" showed Fahrenheit 911 to his class. Liberal teachers will stop at nothing to indoctrinate kids.
I actually watched it last week after the election was over (A friend put me up to it in a kind of "know-your-enemy" exercise). I was astonished that anyone could possibly take it seriously. Not only was it not truthful, but it looked like it was done by the producers of "Jackass". It was just a big juvenile publicity stunt for Michael Moore. His stunts where he drives the ice cream truck around the Capitol harranguing the congresspeople with the Patriot Act and when he got the mutinuous Marine corporal to go with him harassing congresspeople to try to enlist their children in the army were the actions of an ignored 4-year old who acts up and yells "Look at me!" to try to get attention.
I just tell people I have seen it. I feel like I know point by point Moore's idiotic accusations. There was no way in hell I was going to support him financially in anyway, but now that the election is over and Moore is irrelevant, I might borrow it from someone. I live in LA so it shouldn't be to hard to find one.
Oooohhhhh!!!! Good idea. V's wife.
This post is perfect timing for me personally. My 17 year old son came home and informed me that his Sociology class is watching 3 of Michael Moore's movies....yes, including F 9/11. I was enraged this afternoon and left a message for his teacher....I didn't realize that Michael Moore was writing educational guides too!
GLSEN writes curriculum for public schools. Planned Parenthood writes curriculum for public schools. A Muslim group writes curriculum for public schools.
Why shouldn't Michael Moore write curriculum for public schools?
Might be a good idea to go down to the local public school and ask some questions, review some curriculum and textbooks, eh?
To be a true study in Sociology, and IF they insist on showing Moore's film, demand that they also show FarenHYPE 9-11. I think you have more weight (oooh - that could be a pun!) since the president won the election.
Now, now. Let's not make a cannibal out of him. LOL
A couple of teachers here in "conservative" east Tenn. showed this film in class and were reprimanded for showing an "R" rated film to kids under 18.
Sadly, I can assure you there are.
well looking at his Fat bloated A$$ I dont think a little more pork will hurt him. I think a couple more fatback sandwiches might help to clear his arteries out a little. We all need to pitch in and take care of out little fat left wing communist buddy.You see how he really helped us turn out the vote this past election and it wont be long till the next.
They should all move to Massachusetts where a local district attorney informed a mother who was complaining about an off-color book her son had to read that museums, libraries, and public schools were immune to state pornography laws in Massachusetts.
Get outta here (pushing like Elaine on Seinfeld) LoL...... Micheal freakin Moore ...LoL..
I still think we should take an ad out in Variety thanking Michael Moore for solidifying the Republican base and reelecting George W. Bush! We can sign it THE VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY!!!!!
I think 1984 should be mandatory reading in high school. After reading this book, why would any one buy the socialist garabage? It may be a work of fiction, but it is also an exact model of the society mooron and the left crave. Insanity, why, yes!
Berkeley or Oakland CA come to mind.
I used to live near Johnson City...where did this occur? Now I live in New England, where this film is shown in classrooms with nary a peep.
Step 1: Tear page along perforation.
Step 2: Use to cleanse body orifices.
Step 3: Drop in toilet (completely biodegradable, except those pages with Moore's picture, which should be considered toxic waste)
Step 4: Flush.
Oh! Thank you kindly for the link! I had an interesting conversation with some college lunch-buddies after the election (can you just GUESS who they voted for?). As they brought up "the draft", I pulled out info from a post on FR and gave them directions on how to look up the "reinstate the draft" bills and just WHO (Democrats) was sponsoring them. You could hear a pin drop at that table afterwords! It was wonderful. I need to print this out and bring it to the lunch table this week (if I'm allowed to sit with them, now)
The students were telling me that a social studies teacher at our school was thinking of showing Fahrenheit 9/11, but the students didn't think it should be shown unless equal time was given to the other side. :-)
PARENTS - YOU BETTER BE PAYING ATTENTION TO THIS.
I'm assuming most liberal teachers would not inform students ahead of time they were planning on showing this movie. Choosing instead to brainwash our children.
Since Michael Moore is not a credentialed teacher or educator .. it's beyond me why anyone would ever select his garbage to show to students.
Oh there are teachers that will use it alright! This crap fits right in with their liberal public school indoctrination agenda.
I picked up a little flyer at the UMASS Communist convention called "Radical Teacher." This is a REAL magazine (http://www.radicalteacher.org/).
From the brochure: "Founded in 1975, is a socialist, feminist and anti-racist journal dedicated to the theory and practice of teaching. It serves the community of educators who are working for the democratic process, peace, and justice. The magazine examines the root causes of inequality and promotes progressive social change."
Just another reason to get your kids to private school......
Is it just me, or does that image of him peeking over the page that he uses on the linked webpage remind you of the old "Whack-a-mole" game.
I guess it would have to be renamed "Whack a moron"
Believe it or not, that's EXACTLY what I thought of, that and also the NERD with it's nose over the fence that was a constant presence when I was in Jr. High School (late 60's).
Whack a Moron I HADN'T thought of!
