UNZIPPED: An Autopsy of American Inequality
The film will be available streaming on Vimeo on June 1st! If you would like to request a DVD of the film for educational use and/or community screenings, please email email@example.com.
For this powerful documentary film, we’ve created a Community Learning Guide. The Community Learning Guide is a new film-inspired resource featuring key sections to explore through the film. Each section can be used on its own or in collaboration with other key sections. The guide is flexible and appropriate for classroom use, community learning settings, homeschool learners, hybrid educational settings and independent exploration of the film. The guide includes robust background information and helpful facilitation guidelines to set the stage for a positive learning experience.
There are five key learning sections in the community learning guide. Each key section includes: a driving question, useful terms (when applicable), personal reflection, discussion questions, extension activities and additional resources. These sections can be used on their own or in conjunction with other sections in the guide.
The guide wraps with a #RaiseTheRoof Solutions Blueprint Builder and content-rich Appendices that include Case Studies, Further Context and a Glossary of Useful Terms.
