Movie Discussion Guides

Movies have proven to be a valuable resource for getting students' attention and creating opportunities for more effective programming. Our Movie Discussion Guides create effective discussions by using a feature movie to get the students' attention and then focus that attention toward key social and personal development issues through well-facilitated discussions.

Residence Life professionals write movie discussion guides that feature programming ideas and a variety of open-ended questions to help your staff facilitate effective, issues-based discussions. The Guides are provided to you without additional cost. They are sent to you automatically whenever you order a movie for which a Guide has been written and they are also available through this website.
