Instructor (model) presentation on the movie “Bend it Like Beckham”, demonstrating how to use a popular movie for learning about British history: making a presentation starts with identifying questions you have. Some of my questions were:

  1. Who is Beckham in the title? What does the title mean?
  2. Why is an Indian family living in Britain? Where did they come from? How many other “British Indians” are there living in Britain? When did they start coming? Why?
  3. Why does the story take place in Hounslow? Where is Hounslow? Is it a new town or does it have a long history?
  4. What questions do you have about this movie?
  5. What questions do you have about the British history movie you watched?
