How to work with the teaching material
The movie ”Brothers Across Borders” can be watched and discussed on its own.
This ‘teachers guide’ can be used as an optional supplement to dive deeper into the movie and related topics. It is constructed in a way that allows the teacher to pick specific exercises, work across different school subjects or use it to create entire courses or theme weeks. Every theme and exercise can be worked on separately, but the student will gain more perspectives by working with more than just one topic.
The first part of the lessons consists of cases closely related to the movie. Here the students use specific scenes, characters or situations to work through the exercises. The second part introduces a broader group of exercises focusing on the different themes displayed in the narrative. A time estimate for each lesson is provided may vary depending on the individual class.
