Based on a True Story
Have you ever watched a movie that was "based on a true story" and wanted to know what was truth and what was fiction? We will be looking at historical events that have been portrayed in movies. We will look at the historical event, analyze primary resources, watch the films, and discuss the differences between the event and the movie version. This elective will be a great opportunity for students to discuss how and why things are changed when translating a history to film. This class is rated PG-13 and parent permission will be required.
