Please note: the cost of the District 9 study guides is slightly higher than the other study guides due to the sheer size and detail of the guide. 

Some of the work includes:

  • the context of South Africa, including details on apartheid,
  • key facts and information on the making of the film,
  • systems for keeping notes during watching with templates using the Cornell notes system,
  • dozens of activities on narrative in film studies, 
  • information and activities on narrative theorists such as Vladimir Propp, Tzetvan Todorov and Claude Levi-Strauss,
  • work on narrative techniques such as Chekov's Gun, cause and effect and many more, 
  • in-depth details on key scenes,
  • dozens of screenshots from the film as well as images from other relevant areas that have influenced the film,
  • dozens of activities for students including hundreds of questions, 
  • guidance on how to analyse scenes from the film using hexagaonal learning,
  • summary sheets to help with revision
  • key scene analysis which includes links to the specific scenes or extracts, hosted permanently on YouTube, so you don’t even need a copy of the film to complete some of the tasks-again, perfect for students to complete!
  • Many of the tasks have also been designed to be peer or self-assessed and there is a wide variety of solo work, paired work or group work catered for, with each activity described in detail at the beginning of each task. 

On here you'll find three different versions, each with the same content. This version has no watermarks on any page and comes with the Microsoft Word and Mac OSX versions, as well as the unmarked PDFs so that you can edit and do as you like with it. As a result, it has a minimum cost of £5 but is also on a 'name your price' basis, so feel free to pay more! The slightly cheaper version at £2.50 has watermarks on each page and with my name on it and finally, the £3.50 version has no watermarks at all.

This guide has been written so that it can be used in a variety of ways; print and use as a ready-to-go scheme of work in a booklet. Maybe give to students as a detailed homework that can be completed alongside your own classroom work. It also works great for revision, either with individual task printed or again, as a whole booklet. Try printing individual pages as starters or plenaries, or even using the tasks as engaging resources for lessons built around key ideas of your own.

Whether you want to call it a textbook, a viewing guide, an ebook or just a PDF, it's designed to help in the delivery of GCSE Film Studies, focusing on Component 2 Global Film. This guide focuses on the key aspects of Representation and film language, as per the Eduqas Specification.
