School of Babel is a documentary film about a program for immigrant students in a French public school. A class screening of the film may complement a social studies or immigration curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, the film will challenge students to think critically about the experiences of foreign students in their own communities. Discussion questions and supplemental materials facilitate further research into related topics such as peer-to-peer interactions, the school system, and cultural exchange.
