Dead Poets Society Worksheets

The 21st March is World Poetry Day and it is an excellent opportunity to show students a film I am particularly fond of (in fact most teachers are): Dead Poets Society.

Dead Poets Society is a 1989 American drama film directed by Peter Weir, written by Tom Schulman, and starring Robin Williams. Set in 1959 at the fictional elite conservative boarding school Welton Academy, it tells the story of an English teacher who inspires his students through his teaching of poetry.

There are tons of worksheets out there for both native and EFL students focusing on different aspects of the film. The film itself is very rich in literature material and can provoke discussions on many issues like poetry, conformity, education, the list goes on. 

As always, the worksheets are written with my students in mind (ideally 15-18 year olds at B1+ level) and are adapted to what can be easily done in my classroom.


If you decide to use my handout, leave me a comment and let me know how it went.
