Supersize Me: A Discussion Guide for Educators (1998) [

This discussion guide has been developed in response to educators requesting a tool to help with the use of the movie Super Size Me in the classroom. We are not encouraging the use of, or endorsing, this movie and we recommend that Super Size Me only be shown in classrooms with guided discussion around the sensitive and controversial subjects presented. Be aware of stereotypes and discriminatory attitudes presented, and be sure to address these in your classroom discussion. We do not feel Super Size Me is appropriate for students below the grade 6 level.
