Cry the Beloved Country. A Sound Filmstrip Program. Study Guide.
Peters, John; Peters, Frances
Based on the novel and motion picture "Cry, the Beloved Country," this filmstrip program is a re-creation of the story of a black minister and a white farmer in South Africa whose lives are bound together in mutual tragedy. The three filmstrips examine the people, problems, laws, and institutions of South Africa and expose the evils of its apartheid system. Information provided in the guide for each filmstrip includes a synopsis, activities to use with students before viewing the filmstrip, a list of vocabulary terms, and themes to explore. Unit activities provided include discussion topics, ideas for creative and expository writing, topics for further investigation, and ways of comparing the novel and the filmstrip program. The guide concludes with a brief bibliography of additional fiction and non-fiction dealing with South Africa. (RM)
