Writing and discussion activities will help students explore the cultural points of view portrayed in each of the films. Students are also advised to keep a film journal that will allow them to observe how their reactions and observations develop through the course of the class.In addition to increasing students knowledge and understanding of cultural differences, Seeing the Big Picture will help students develop strong critical-thinking and analytic abilities as they learn to recognize and question messages inherent in the films portrayals of different populations.
