Each film has unique opportunities to further their impact through educational content. Education content is the heart and soul of Blueshift. We have created Toolkits, Full Film Curriculum, Film-specific lessons and Parent Education Guides. Each resource will bolster engagement and impact objectives in classrooms or informal community based settings and will include extensive story-specific research. Other elements can include interviews with film subjects, suggested video clips, innovative engagement activities, discussion questions, additional resources, partnering opportunities and national educational standards when appropriate.
We created an Educator Toolkit for The Bad Kids that includes professional development tools for faculty and staff of alternative schools and complementary classroom lessons around the film's main themes: resilience, trauma, trusting relationships and social-emotional learning. The lessons are aligned with national standards and built around film clips that are unique to the lessons and designed to be taught in a 50-minute classroom period.
We created a full curriculum for Romeo is Bleeding that is aligned with national standards and includes different pathways for English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Drama.
The classroom lessons for Audrie & Daisy include tips for educators on how to prepare for a screening on the sensitive topic of sexual assault and social media, as well as classroom lessons that include recommendations for using the full film, or thematic clips around cultural norms, digital citizenship, consent, by-stander intervention, and healthy relationships.
