Introduction to Sequences

Students have studied number patterns before Algebra 2 and in this unit they learn to use algebraic representations for these patterns.  This first lesson is specifically designed to connect our study of sequences and series to what they already know about functions and number patterns.  

There is a one-time investment in the creation of 6-10 sets of Sequence Strips (depending on your class size).  The strips are used in this and the next two lessons in this unit to increase engagement and foster flexible thinking.  Each of the sequence strips has the first 6 terms of a number sequence followed by 3 blanks for students to fill in.  I like to print these strips on brightly colored paper (one color per set) and then laminate them.  The color coding helps we keep sets together and the laminating makes it possible to reuse as students write their answers with wet-erase markers.

It's important to give students the opportunity to explore so I create random student groups of 3 by "counting off" and provide each group with a set of sequence cards to work with.  

I tell students that their task is to (1) extend the patterns and (2) sort the cards into 3 piles [MP1]. When students have completed the task, we come together as a group to discuss how they have sorted [MP.3].

Based on Philip van Doren Stern’s story “The Greatest Gift” (1943), Frank Capra’s 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life celebrates the life of George Bailey, a good-hearted man who once dreamed of getting a college degree, travelling the world, and building big things (bridges, skyscrapers, airfields!) in the big world, but whose compassion and commitments to family, friends, and neighbors keep him in the small town of Bedford Falls. On the night when George feels most desperate and worthless, his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody intervenes and shows George an “alternate timeline” in which he never existed—leading George to a new appreciation of his town, his people, and himself. The story has been retold since in multiple radio plays, a gender-reversed TV-movie remake It Happened One Christmas (in which Clara Odbody helps one Mary Bailey, who wed George Hatch), and finally, in Sheldon Harnick and Joe Raposo’s popular stage musical It’s a Wonderful Life (1991).

1) ENGLISH/ LITERATURE Activities:

1.1) Hold a Winter or Christmas-themed Spelling Bee for your students/children (with an elementary list & a secondary list, for a mixed age group) — in honor of Pete Bailey, who famously asks how to spell “frankincense” and “hallelujah.” Other suggestions: tintinnabulation; euphony; carillon; belfry; crystalline; nativity; myrrh; magi; (arch)angel; cherubim; seraphim; guardian; dominions; adoration; annunciation; mediatrix; melodious; multitude; merriment; jubilation; radiance; hallowed; majesty; divinity; sovereign; savior; swaddling; shepherd; virgin; immaculate; prophecy; vacancy; pregnant, cradle; manger; prayer; yuletide; glory; choir; hymn; sublime; census; crèche; figurine; Bethlehem; Emmanuel; Christmas; caroling; reindeer; sleigh; velocity; trajectory; (chimney) flue; fruitcake; cocoa; eggnog; wassail; recipe; mistletoe; wreath; tinsel; ornaments; icicle; snowflake; blizzard; avalanche; constellation; sphere; celestial; eternity; illumination; animatronic; automaton; commercialization; coniferous; migration; hibernation; equinox; hypothermia; cryogenic; thermometer/ thermostat.

1.2) George offers to lasso the moon for Mary. This sounds like a “Tall Tale,” so reread the tales of your favorite larger-than-life characters, such as Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, or John Henry. (Perhaps reread “The Devil and Daniel Webster,” since it’s a story about saving a man’s soul—albeit by a skilled New England lawyer rather than a somewhat-inept minor angel.)

1.3) “No man is a failure who has friends.” Recalling Clarence’s famous remark in the film, review (or try to learn) other Famous Sayings or Proverbs.   Consider such sources as:

  • the morals of Aesop’s Fables (or their French retellings by La Fontaine)
  • the Biblical Book of Proverbs
  • Benjamin Franklin and/or Poor Richard’s Almanac
  • other “witty” individuals, like writers William Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde
  • marketing slogans: “Cleanliness is next to godliness.”
  • the Core Knowledge Series of seven books by E.D. Hirsch Jr., What Your Kindergartner Needs To Know through What Your Sixth-Grader Needs To Know (for each book includes proverbs/popular sayings which experts agree should be part of the common knowledge of all American children)

“Tempus Fugit” says Matthew to Clarence in the musical. What does this mean?   How many other famous Latin Phrases can you list and translate?  Begin with the Marine Corps motto “Semper Fi,” and the USA’s “E Pluribus Unum.” Frank Capra’s film begins “in media res;” does the rousing ending illustrate “carpe diem”?

1.4) “Aw, you look like the kinda angel I’d get.”
Consider the character of Clarence Odbody, and discuss why he might be selected as the guardian angel for George Bailey. What makes these two a match? Are they alike in some fundamental ways? Or do they have differences, which will cause George to react in ways beneficial to the story or the mission? (Is it significant that Clarence was a clockmaker? That he carries around a copy of Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; why/ how is that relevant? How would you describe Clarence’s personality—sweet, naïve, bumbling, sort of a failure, or clever & creative in his way, a late bloomer?)

1.5) Trace the Allusions in the script:

  • How does the “David and Goliath” reference suit the late Peter Bailey’s Building & Loan project in Bedford Falls?
  • Why does George refer to Mary Howitt’s poem “The Spider and the Fly” in the scene in Potter’s office, where he considers/ almost agrees to work for Potter?
  • Why is Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer carried by Clarence and passed on to George Bailey? How is it relevant to the story or characters?
  • In the musical, George is described as Atlas carrying Bailey Park on his shoulders. What does this mean?

1.6) Read Philip van Doren Stern’s original story “The Greatest Gift,” and discuss which elements were kept and which changed as it was adapted for film and stage? What is gained or lost by the changes or additions made? Overall, would you say the film and musical turned out better, worse, or as good as the original story?

1.7) Ryhyme

Every time a bell rings
An angel gets his wings.

Since these famous words form a rhymed couplet (two lines whose ending words rhyme), use them as a springboard to introduce or review the Elements of Poetry—especially Rhyme Scheme (using letters of the alphabet to mark the pattern of rhyming end words in a poem). Help your students/children mark the Rhyme Scheme of specific poems using this system: The end word of the first line is labeled ‘A.’ If the end word of the second line rhymes with the first, it is also labeled ‘A;’ if not, it becomes ‘B.’ If the end word of the third line rhymes with the first end word, it’s labeled ‘A;’ if it rhymes with the second end word, it’s another ‘B;’ and if neither, it becomes ‘C’ … and so on.

Ex. Roses are red, –A
Violets are blue, –B
Sugar is sweet, –C
and so are you. –B Rhyme Scheme: ABCB

Ex. “She walks in beauty like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes …”
Rhyme Scheme: ABAB (see Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” for more)

Certain kinds of poems have a predictable rhyme scheme. Limericks are generally humorous 5-line poems (2-long, 2-short, & 1-long line) with the rhyme scheme AABBA. (ex. A Lolligag of Limericks, ed. Myra Cohn Livingston; N.M. Bodecker, A Person From Britain Whose Head of the Shape of the Mitten and other LimericksSonnets are 14-line meditations on a generally serious/mature topic or idea, in one of two forms: The Italian or Petrarchan Sonnet uses a group of 8 lines (octet), then a group of 6 lines (sestet), to convey its meaning; the rhyme scheme is often ABABCDCD EFGEFG, though it can vary. The English or Shakespearean Sonnet uses three 4-line stanzas, then ends with a rhymed couplet, so a typical rhyme scheme would be ABAB CDCD EFEF GG.  Of course, poems made entirely of Rhymed Couplets will be very easy for children to mark. (Ex. Robert Louis Stevenson “Whole Duty of Children;” Joyce Kilmer “Trees;” Richard Armour “Rain;” Theodore Rothke “The Bat;” Doris Frankel “Song of the Truck;” T.S. Eliot “Macavity, the Mystery Cat”)
Sometimes two end words do not rhyme exactly, but are very close—like ‘pain’ and ‘again’ (a-gen, a-gain)—and it’s clear the poet meant them to be a match. This is called slant rhyme, and both words get labeled with the same alphabet letter in the poem’s rhyme scheme.
Free Verse does not rhyme at all; it doesn’t even keep the same length of lines, or same number of beats per line. (Ex. Walt Whitman “I Hear America Singing,” Carl Sandburg “Fog,” and Elias Lieberman “I am an American.”)

Some other elements of Poetry to review (Laura Bercquist’s anthology The Harp and the Laurel Wreath includes valuable explanations of these & other elements):

  • Alliteration (repetition of the same beginning sound in two or more words)
  • Consonance (repetition of a consonant sound in the beginning, middle, or end of words)
  • Assonance (repetition of a vowel sound in the beginning, middle, and end of words)
  • Onomatopoeia (a word that is an expression of a sound—basically the sound itself spelled into a word; ex. hiss, buzz, pop, aargh)
  • Simile (a comparison between two things which uses the words ‘like’ or ‘as’; ex. ‘My luv is like a red, red rose…’)
  • Metaphor (a comparison between two things which does not include the words ‘like’ or ‘as;’ ex. ‘I am the vine; you are the branches.’)
  • Personification (a figure of speech attributing human characteristics or feeling to non-human things)
  • Symbolism (a figure of speech in which one object represents, and calls to mind, another object/person; for example, a hammer might represent a workman, or a poem might speak of ‘the lamb’ instead of naming Jesus Christ specifically.)
  • Imagery (language that conveys what the five senses perceive, ideally to produce a fuller picture in the reader’s mind)
  • Poets often have a favorite source, or field of knowledge, from which they frequently draw imagery, symbols, comparisons, such as nature, or technology/machinery, or religion, or fishing/sailing, or childhood, or sports.
  • Rhythm (basically the regular repetition of stressed and unstressed beats in each line of poem. Four different patterns are iambic, trochaic, anapestic, and dactylic.  Older students could also determine the Meter, named by the number of feet  in the line, such as -4-tetrameter or -5- pentameter; a ‘foot’ would be a group of two or three syllables including one stressed syllable– in basically one of the four rhythmic patterns listed above.)

1.8) Use your poetic knowledge from 1.7 above, to study poems offering various viewpoints on these topics, drawn from It’s a Wonderful Life:

  • Bells (Edgar Allen Poe “The Bells;” Alfred Tennyson ‘Christmas and New Year Bells’/”Ring Out, Wild Bells;” Eleanor Farjeon “School-Bell;” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow “Christmas Bells;” e.e. cummings “anyone lived in a pretty how town”)
  • Angels (Katharine Tynan “Michael the Archangel;” John Henry Newman “Guardian Angel;”  Hilaire Belloc “The Birds;” Edgar Allen Poe “Annabel Lee;” William Blake “The Chimney-Sweeper;” Michael Williams “Michael the Archangel;” W.H. Auden “Chorus of Angels;” plus angel & nativity in Madeleine L’Engle “O Simplicitas,” Three Songs of Mary)
  • Winter (Robert Frost “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “A Patch of Old Snow,” “A Winter Eden,” & “Dust of Snow;” Frank Asch “Sunflakes;” Francis Thompson “To A Snowflake;” Ralph Waldo Emerson “The Snowstorm;” Robert Louis Stevenson “Winter-Time;” Elizabeth Coatsworth “Cat on a Night of Snow;” Jeanne McGahey “Oregon Winter;” from “Snowbound” by John Greenleaf Whittier, in Winter Poems, ed. Barbara Rogasky)
  • Christmas (Clement Clark Moore “A Visit from St. Nicholas;” Walter de la Mare “Santa Claus;” Richard Eberhart “Santa Claus in Oaxaca;” Howard Nemerov “Santa Claus;” Philip Booth “Uncle Christmas;” Phillips Brooks “Christmas Everywhere;” Christina Rossetti “A Christmas Carol;” Eugene Field “Jest ‘Fore Christmas;” GK Chesterton “A Christmas Carol;” Sir John Betjeman “Christmas;” R.S. Thomas “Hill Christmas;” Langston Hughes “Christmas Eve;” T.S. Eliot “The Cultivation of Christmas Trees;” e.e. cummings “little tree;” Peter Cornelius “The Christmas Tree;” Eleanor Farjeon “In the Week when Christmas Comes” & “Holly and Mistletoe;” Countee Cullen “Under the Mistletoe;” Leslie Norris “The Stable Cat;” Norma Farber “Spider;” Edwin Morgan “The Computer’s First Christmas Card;” Gerald William Barrax “Christmas 1959 Et Cetera;” Frank Horne “Kid Stuff;” Carl Sandburg “Star Silver;” Vachel Lindsay “Star of My Heart;” William Carlos Williams “The Gift;” anthologies: American Christmas (1967), eds. Webster Schott & Robert J. Myers; Poems of Christmas (1980) & Christmas Poems (1984), ed. Myra Cohn Livingston)
  • Flowers (William Wordsworth “Daffodils;” Hilda Conkling “Dandelion;” Helen Gray Cone “The Dandelions;” Jane Taylor “The Violet;” Sydney Dobell “The Procession of the Flowers;” Edmund Waller “Go, Lovely Rose;” Ralph Waldo Emerson “The Rhodora”)
  • House(s) (Padraic Colum “An Old Woman of the Roads;” James S. Tippet “Old Log House;” Edgar A. Guest “Home;” Robert Frost “The Census-Taker;” Robert Penn Warren, “The Little White House;” Aileen Fisher “Best Little House”– picture book)
  • WWII, or Military Service (Joyce Kilmer “Prayer of a Soldier in France;” Cecil Roberts “Prayer for a Pilot;” John Gillespie Magee Jr.“High Flight;” T.S. Eliot “Defense of the Islands” & “A Note on War Poetry”)
  • Irish Immigration/Heritage (James B. Dollard “Song of the Little Villages”; legacy of past greatness: Eleanor Rogers Cox “Dreaming of Cities Dead,” “Death of Cuchulain,” & “Gods and Heroes of the Gael;” Edmund Leamy Sr. “Ireland;” Shane Leslie “Ireland, Mother of Priests”)
  • Italian Immigration/Heritage (Thomas Augustine Daly “Leetla Giorgio Washeenton;” Emma Lazarus “The New Colossus”)
  • Suicide (Edwin Arlington Robinson “Richard Cory;” GK Chesterton “Ballade of Suicide;” Hamlet’s “To Be, or Not To Be” soliloquy)
  • Dead/ Non-existent People talking to the Living (everyone in Edgar Lee Masters Spoon River Anthology; John McCrae “In Flanders’ Fields;” Christina Rossetti “After Death” & “Sleeping at Last”)

1.9) During the time George has never been born, he finds his familiar hometown transformed into the nightmare world of Pottersville– a kind of dystopian vision.  The restored Bedford Falls appears as a kind of Utopia, or perfect/ desirable place– a loving Bailey family at its core, surrounded by a network of friendly neighbors quick to offer help and support, and financial security restored, and a renewed sense of purpose/ value in George’s work.

Read & discuss other examples of Utopias & Dystopias in literature (What makes them desirable or undesirable places to live?): Plato’s Republic; Thomas More’s Utopia; Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels; Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The May-Pole of Merry Mount” & “Rappacini’s Daughter;” William Morris’ News From Nowhere; Edward Bellamy’s Looking Backward; Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World; George Orwell’s 1984; Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451; Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time; Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale; Lois Lowry’s The Giver, Gathering Blue, & Messenger; Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Among the Hidden series, as well as Running Out of Time (compare to M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Village); Jeanne du Prau’s City of Ember; Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, & Mockingjay;  stories of King Arthur’s Camelot; and some interpret Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford as female utopias.

A Utopia could also be a travel account of an unspoiled native or natural place (perhaps Thoreau’s Walden, or Life in the Woods), or a recollection of a childhood place (like a secret garden… a perfect summer… perhaps like Garnet’s Thimble Summer, or the fictional Green Knowe by L.M. Boston).  It could be a Commune or Experimental Community, whether political, social or religious– America’s early Puritan colonies; Brook Farm (in which Nathaniel Hawthorne spent some unhappy time); a monastery or convent of a religious order (“The Rule of St. Benedict;” As Great A Right to be Merry; DVD Into Great Silence, etc.); or 1960s/1970s hippie communes.  It could be a Planned City or an Ideal/Planned Community, such as the plans for Washington, D.C.; one time “worker’s paradise” Vandergrift, PA (see Anne Mosher’s Capital’s Utopia); New Deal homestead community Norvelt, PA, providing a fresh start to displaced mineworkers (locally chronicled by Sondra Wolk Shimizzi); or the Seaside community that provided the setting for The Truman Show movie.  Dystopias could also include prison literature, failed experiments (see Marx’s “Communist Manifest” and the culture it spawned in Soltzenitsyn’s One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich & The Gulag Archipelago); or deliberate “Anti-” literature, writing fictional places/situations to criticize an idea or group (such as anti-technology films like The Net, or anti-genetic experimentation/discrimination films likeGattaca or V for Vendetta; or deliberately anti-Catholic literature like The Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk or Lewis’ The Monk).

2) ENGLISH/ WRITING Activities:

2.1) George Bailey never realized the impact his life had on the lives around him. Write a description of (or tribute to) a person who has made a positive difference in your life.
Or, recalling the disasters and eventual triumph of George’s Christmas Eve, describe a turning point in your life, a day full of unexpected developments, or an event that could have had a very different outcome—and reflect on how that has changed you.

2.2) George Bailey’s work helps many citizens to realize their dream of home ownership. Research and write report on someone who made a significant difference by helping with a social problem (such as a saint, inventor, social activist, writer, politician).
Or, conduct an interview with someone you feel is bettering our community today.

2.3) Like Pete Bailey, try your hand at writing a Christmas Play for your class/family to perform. It could be a Nativity story, or the story of a Miracle that takes place on Christmas Eve (like It’s a Wonderful Life, Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Rumer Godden’s Holly and Ivy, Susan Wojciechowski’s The Christmas Miracle of Jonathon Toomey, Ethel Pochoki’s A Penny for a Hundred [an American child’s gift to a German POW]; or even Miracle on 34th Street).

2.4) The Bedford Falls Sentinel proudly announces that local boy, Harry Bailey, is returning home with a Congressional Medal of Honor—and it’s in that newspaper issue that Uncle Billy misplaces $8,000!
Learn more about the events and/or heroes important to your community during WWII. Visit your local library or historical society to view newspapers dated between 1941 and 1946. Do you find many articles about local homecomings? national/international events? Or purely local happenings?
Generate a family or classroom newspaper, focused on your own events and interests, and try to include News, Features, Arts/ Reviews, Food, Sports, and possibly Ads and Announcements (Births, Engagements/Weddings, Obituaries).

2.5) For older students:  View another film or stage-play involving EITHER  Angels, or Time-Distortion/ Time Travel/ Alternate Timelines, then write an essay to compare/contrast, and reflect upon  how & why, Angels or Time are handled in It’s A Wonderful Life and the other film/play.

For Angels, consider The Nativity Story (2006/7, Keisha Castle-Hughes); Wim Wender’s Wings of Desire (1988) and Faraway, So Close! (1993); Heaven Only Knows (1947 angel-western); Angels in the Outfield (1951, when they help the Pittsburgh Pirates) or the Disney remake (1994, no Pirates); or action flicks Constantine (Keanu Reeves) or Legion (Paul Bettany).  Though it lacks angels, the original Heaven Can Wait (1943) focuses on a man reviewing the merits of his earthly life from the afterlife.

For Timeplay, consider Washington Irving’s story “Rip van Winkle” or Ray Bradbury’s story “The Fox and The Forest;” H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine (book, multiple films); Thornton Wilder’s Our Town (play or film); Sutton Vane’s Outward Bound (play or film, re: suicide); The Portrait of Jenny (Joseph Cotten; Jennifer Jones); Groundhog Day (Bill Murray); Frequency (Dennis Quaid, Jim Caviezel); The Lake House (Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bulllock); Sliding Doors (Gwenyth Paltrow); possibly Back to the Future or The Terminator movies; Stargate: Continuum or other sci fi (like Original Star Trek’s “Mirror, Mirror” & “The City on the Edge of Forever” episodes); and possible musicals A Christmas Carol or Scrooge; Carousel; or Brigadoon.

3) MATH Activities:

3.1) If Zuzu holds a flower with 12 petals on it, while George Bailey hides 3 petals in his pocket, how many petals did Zuzu’s flower have to begin with?
Express as a fraction the amount of petals Zuzu’s flower has lost.
What percentage of petals has Zuzu’s flower lost?

If Zuzu’s flower began with 24 petals, and still lost 3, how many petals would it have now?
What fraction of petals still remains?
What percentage of petals still remains?

3.2) If the year is 1946, and Clarence is 293 years old, in what year was Clarence born?
If George Bailey was 12 years old in 1919, how old is George when he meets Clarence in 1946?

3.3) George Bailey desperately needs $8,000. If Mary collects $2,350 around Bedford Falls, and Sam Wainright advances George $25,000 more, by how much does the generosity of George’s friends and neighbors exceed his debt?

3.4) According to Mr. Potter, George Bailey earns $45 per week, and saves perhaps $10 per week. How much money, then, does George earn in a year? What are the Baileys’ expenses for one year? And how much does George save in a year? What percentage of his income does George save each week?
Mr. Potter offers to pay George $20,000 per year to be his employee. How much more would George earn in one year if he worked for Potter? Assuming the same expenses as before, how much money would George save in a year of working for Potter?
Assuming pay & expenses stay the same, how long (years, weeks?) would it take George to save that same amount of money—total money saved in one year under Potter—at his current job?

3.5) If Zuzu dreams of a flower garden with 15 rows of 15 pink flowers, 10 rows of 12 yellow flowers, and 13 rows of 13 purple flowers, how many flowers total appear in Zuzu’s dream?

3.6) If the high school swimming pool is 60 feet long and 40 feet wide, what area of flooring is needed to cover it during a dance? If one third of the pool is 5 feet deep, one third is 10 feet deep, and on third of the pool is 15 feet deep, what volume of water does the pool hold?

3.7) Ernie’s home in Bailey Park is worth $5,000. If the home increases in value by 8% in one year, what will the home be worth then? If it increases in value by 8% every year, what will the home be worth in another 5 years?

3.8) Besides Clarence, another 50 angels are hoping to get their wings. Bedford Falls has one church bell tower; it rings once at one o’clock, twice at two o’clock, thrice at three o’clock, and so on. How many bells will ring out in a twelve-hour period—and will that be enough for Clarence and his friends to get their wings?

3.9) One summer day, Mr. Gower buys frozen ice cream treats on a stick at 3 for $.25, and young George sells them all at 2 for $.25. If Gower’s made a profit of $1.00 that day, how many ice cream treats were sold.

3.10) Play with Time: A fast clock gains one minute per hour, and a slow clock loses two minutes per hour. Initially, both clocks are set to the correct time. Less than 24 hours later, the fast clock registers 9 o’clock at the same moment the slow clock registers 8 o’clock. What is the correct time at that moment?

4) SOCIAL STUDIES/GEOGRAPHY Activities:

4.1) Make a map of New York State (in which Van Doren’s Bedford Falls is located), including the cities of Rochester, Buffalo, and New York City (all mentioned in the film).  Add the Hudson and Mohawk rivers, and Lakes Ontario, Erie, and Champlain. Add the state capital, and (any) four other cities to your map. Finally, indicate the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains. (Which of these mountain ranges is older? How could you tell?)

4.2) Using an atlas or globe, locate the following places George Bailey hoped to visit: New York, NY; Tahiti, the Fiji Islands (Mary picks island music for their homemade honeymoon); Italy, Greece; and the Yukon. What could George have seen/experienced in each place?

The musical features the hope of travel to Europe.  Map present-day Europe in its entirety.  Make a point of locating & marking the three cities George & Mary picked for their honeymoon: Paris, Budapest, and Rome.  In terms of area, which are Europe’s five largest countries? Which are its five smallest? (Did you remember to map Liechtenstein, Monaco, Andorra, San Marino, and the Holy See/ Vatican state?)   See also Social Studies/Economics 6.3, and answer the questions for five European countries.

4.3) Create a map of Europe as it was in 1650; create another of the “New World” /Western Hemisphere—countries, colonies, territories, or settlements- in 1650. (Presumably Clarence was born into 1650s Europe or America; which would you guess?) If you wish, map the other continents as they were in 1650 for a complete world view.

4.4) Create 3 maps of Europe, showing the continent before, during, and after World War II (for example, in 1938, 1943, and 1947).
(Any quality European History textbook should include this info, but for those who love to learn through maps, Ronald Storey’s Concise Historical Atlas of World War Two [Oxford UP, 2006] provides an overview of the entire conflict through a series of 50 maps, each with a companion page of historical discussion.)

4.5) Make a map of present-day Afghanistan, and make a special effort to identify places where American marines and soldiers are serving today. Visit anysoldier.com for locations and requested items so you can prepare letters and/or a care package; or send a care package through the USO—still going strong since ‘Mary Bailey’ volunteered with it in the 1940s.

5) SOCIAL STUDIES/ HISTORY Activities:

5.1) Research the history of the U.S. Marine Corps, especially their service during World War II.

5.2) Research World War II, as referenced by this film/musical:

On the Homefront: Mary helped with the USO; Ma Bailey and Mrs. Hatch with the Red Cross; Mr. Gower sold war bonds; George dealt with tire drives; shortages/rationing; and served as an air raid warden;  Mr. Potter ran the draft board. (An interesting fact:  About 2/3 of  U.S. WWII veterans were drafted, versus only 1/4 of Vietnam vets.)  Other residents planted Victory Gardens, attended church & prayed.

WWII  Overseas: According to the film, Bedford Falls residents fought in the campaigns in North Africa;
parachuted into France; and helped take the Remagen Bridge.  Where & when would these be?
Harry Bailey became a decorated (Navy) flier, saving men on a  transport– would you guess this to have happened in the Pacific?  What were some of the major events of the War in the Pacific?

Historical Cookbooks: Joanne Lamb Hayes’ Grandma’s Wartime Kitchen (with Jean Anderson) & Grandma’s Wartime Baking Book; Jill Norman’s Eating for Victory; Marguerite Patten’s Victory Cookbook (UK)

5.3) Mr. Potter calls George Bailey a “nursemaid to a bunch of garlic-eaters.”  Research Irish Immigration to America as background for the Baileys.
Then research Italian Immigration– the probable story of the Martinis.  Besides “garlic-eaters,” what other derogatory terms were applied to Italian-Americans?
Consider a visit to the Immigrant Museum in Johnstown, PA; also the Johnstown Flood Museum & Incline.

5.4) We see George dressed in a football jersey, and know that Harry played.  Research the history of Football –especially the local Latrobe, PA connection.

5.5) Building Big:  Modern Cities.  Pick a major metropolis (such as New York, Paris, Budapest, or Rome), and research what it was like in four different decades, or if possible, four different centuries.

6) SOCIAL STUDIES/ ECONOMICS Activities:

6.1) Explore the American Dream of home-ownership– long a symbol of American financial & familial success and stability. Research & compare statistics on this in 1946 (post-war) and the present-day; also explore changing floorplans & home prices over the past century.
Finally, consider the pros & cons of owning vs. renting today. (Financial guru Suzie Orman, for example, may be questioning the value of home-ownership for the current generation of Americans.)

6.2) Learn about types of depository institutions: what’s the difference between a bank, a credit union, and a savings & loan (or building & loan)?  What types of accounts, or savings options, are available?  In general, what are the types of loans people take on– what are the usual reasons for borrowing? Which loans tend to carry the highest interest rates (and what do fixed & variable rates mean) ? (Could there be other costs, besides interest, associated with borrowing?)

6.3) Potter to George Bailey: “Why, you’re worth more dead than alive.”  Research the Avg. Net Worth/ Buying Power of a citizen in 10 different countries countries, including the USA– info often included in an atlas.  Note also the Gross Domestic Product (GDP)s of these countries.  Note also their population density.  Do you notice any relationship or pattern between these figures; why or why not?

6.4) George has a $15,000 life insurance policy, with $500 equity.  Learn some Life insurance basics: what are the differences between term life policies, and whole life?  How do people determine how much coverage they need? What would be your best guess regarding what George’s policy was meant to do (for example, pay off George & Mary’s home mortgage; provide Mary & the kids with living expenses for X amount of time; cover funeral expenses; etc.)?

6.5) Inflation.  (If $5000 gets Ernie a decent house in the 1940s, why not today?  Explain how prices can be so different today!)

6.6) The Baileys find it disturbing that Henry Potter owns many (all?) rental properties in Bedford Falls– and also takes control of the bank from which people would need to borrow money in order to purchase a home. Find the definition of a “monopoly.”  Does this fit Potter’s operation? Are there other terms that would better describe Potter’s business practices?

6.7) Research Bank disasters/failures, esp. in 1929 (beginning the Great Depression)– as featured in the musical– and on contemporary Wall Street.

7) SCIENCE Activities:

Possible Research topics:

7.1) Safety on Ice. Safety during Winter play (frostbite, hypothermia).
7.2) Experiment to determine the best melting agents for ice.
7.3) Bells. Sound.

7.4) Young George loses hearing in one ear.  Learn more about the structure & function of the ear. What causes Hearing Loss or Deafness? What treatments are available– or how do people adapt to living without hearing? (Learn how to sign a few words, from American Sign Language.)

7.5) George’s father suffers a stroke.  Research Strokes– what is a stroke; what are the risk factors/ suggestions for prevention?
7.6)  Research Diphtheria– cause, symptoms/risks, treatment.  What sort of treatment was Mr. Gower likely preparing when he made his mistake with the baby’s prescription?

7.7) Review ways to keep people and/or the environment safe from Poisoning— ex. Pest Control; Household Cleaning Products; Makeup, Food, OTC & Rx Medicines; Paint; Waste or Chemical Disposal; Forensic science/ Criminal use of poisons.
7.8) Learn more about the Development of Medicines– and the development of Poisons, since the two are often related (or have been mistaken for each other, in history).  Toxic! Killer Cures and Other Poisonings by Susie Hodge makes this point; Hodge also recommends John Elmsley’s The Elements of Murder: A History of Poison, Peter Macinnis’ Poisons, R.M. Youngson’s Scientific Blunders, and Bee Wilson’s Swindled: The Dark History of Food Fraud, from Poisoned Candy to Counterfeit Coffee.  For a stronger medical focus, consider Fran Balkwill and Mic Rolph’s Microbes, Bugs, and Wonder-Drugs: Potions to Penicillin, Aspirin to Addiction.  Perhaps pick a specific pharmacy school or  pharmaceutical company to research.

7.9) Since Clarence was once a clockmaker, research Clocks/ History of Timekeeping.

Here are some topic ideas (courtesy of Ken Sobol’s The Clock Museum, 1967):  Ancient times– obelisks, sun dials, water clocks,  King Alfred’s candle clock, Chinese fire clocks, Tibetan sun-sticks, stone calendars (ex. Stonehenge); Medieval times– waterwheel clocks with escapement, mechanical clocks with spindle, tower clocks (some with moving figures), sandglasses; 1500s– pocket sundials, jewelled pocket-watches, Peter Heinlein, “Nuremburg eggs,” birdcage or lantern clocks, first clockmakers’ guild; “Great Age of Clock-Making: 1500-1800”– spring clocks, pendulum clocks, automata, James Cox (b. England, c.1715), Prince Potemkin of Russia’s “Peacock clock;” Sailors’ timepieces, 1700s– chronometers, gimbals; American clocks, 1700s– grandfather clocks, mass production, “pillar-and-scroll” clocks, also “banjo,” “acorn,” “minstrel,” “wag-on-the-wall;”  World War I– wristwatches; Scientific clocks– quartz-crystal, atomic clocks.

Is there a future for clock-making– alarm clocks, wristwatches, anything– in the age of cell phones, i-pods, etc.?

7.10) Snow/Snowflakes:  The snow stops falling when George ceases to exist, and returns when he gets his life back– so learn more about them. Young readers will enjoy Jacqueline Briggs Martin’s informational picture book Snowflake Bentley, about a pioneer in the study of snowflakes; older students might enjoy Wilson A. Bentley’s Snow Crystals itself.  Where and why might people study snow today?  Consider meteorology/ weather prediction.  What else can be studied in snowbound or arctic climates?  Research explorers of/ expeditions to the North and South Poles. (At least one IMAX film exists on Shackleton’s amazing survival story.)  What projects are undertaken in Antarctica today?  What goes on in the Arctic circle (ex. William F. Althoff, Drift Stations: Arctic Outposts of Superpower Science)?

7.11) Since George offers to lasso the moon, research the Moon– its size & features, its exploration.

7.12) Since George recommends coconut to Mary, research the Coconut.  Is it a fruit, vegetable, or nut?  Was it really used in/as an IV  by WWII medics in the Pacific?

7.13) Glass– what it is, how it’s made (from the past to the present). Consider field-tripping to one of Pittsburgh’s glass-related sites.
7.14) Research Plastics, since they provide Sam Wainwright with a fortune (while George misses out on the opportunity).

7.15) Mr. Potter is compared to one, so research Spiders.  How do arachnids differ from insects? All spiders have spinnerets, but not all of them are orb-spinners who wait on their webs for prey (like Potter).  How do the other spiders behave?  How do these spiders differ physically from orb-spinners?  Finally, Read a spider-related tale from Folklore:  Arachne from Greek Mythology; the Spider-Woman from Native-American lore; or Anansi from Ashanti tales, Ghana.

7.16) In honor or Zuzu’s flower, learn about the Anatomy of a Flower.  (Consider a bulb dissection kit for a hands-on approach.)  Experiment to see if Fragrance or Color is more attractive to bees and/or butterflies.

7.17) Study the Anatomy of a Tree.  In the film, a distraught George damages a neighbor’s tree with his car– but later ends up happily beside his own family Christmas tree.

7.18) George dreams of Building Big:  Research Bridges and Skyscrapers.
7.19) Airplanes/ Forces of Flight.

7.20) Physics of “the Impossible”: Time Travel, & Alternate Realities/ Timelines.  Surprisingly, physicist Michio Kaku, author of Physics of the Impossible, tells us that there are few  ‘impossibilities’ which truly violate the laws of physics– so most are considered impossible  because we don’t yet have the technology figured out.

7.21) Learn about the effects of Alcohol Consumption on the human body (such as Uncle Billy!).  What constitutes drunkenness, and alcoholism?

8) ART/ ARCHITECTURE Activities:

George Bailey rescuing his brother from the ice, in this coloring page depicting a scene from It's a Wonderful Life.

8.1) Little ones will enjoy coloring this picture of George Bailey rescuing his brother from the ice.

8.2) Cut out paper snowflakes.  Some editions of Jacqueline Briggs Martin’s informational picture book Snowflake Bentley (recounting Wilson A. Bentley’s lifelong effort to photograph and study snowflakes) come with a booklet of snowflake patterns; but other such pattern books exist (ex. Peggy Edwards Make Your Own Snowflakes, or Dover Coloring Books Snowflakes). (Creativity for Kids also produces a kit for assembling snowflakes out of pearl-like beads.)

Learn more about other paper-cut art, perhaps from the Amish/Pennsylvania Deutch, or Polish falk art traditions, or the amazing book illustrations of David Wisniewski (Elfwyn’s Saga; Golem; and many others).

8.3) Make a snowglobe.  Again, a pre-packaged kit is available with plastic globe base & top, clay for making a figure(s) for inside, water and glitter.  We’ve made our own using a carefully-cleaned large-sized glass baby food jar (though mustard, olive, cherry, any jar would do) with baked clay figures (like a snowman) or plastic trinkets (from gumball machines, dollar stores, Michaels) superglued inside the lid –and, yes, filled with silver glitter and water.

8.4) In honor of Zuzu’s beloved posy, practice drawing flowers– individually, or grouped as a Still Life. Visit the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg for ideas and suggestions, or use one of the many How-to-Draw books (ex. Draw 100 Flowers) at your local bookstore.

8.5) Because Bedford Falls is so important to this story, create your own Street Scene/ Town Storefronts (paper).  For young children, take a legal-sized sheet of paper and fold it accordian-style to create five rectangular sections. Lay the paper flat and help the children use the folds as guidelines for the sides of their buildings. Let the children draw five storefronts– or, four buildings, making one of the buildings two folds wide (this works well for adding a church or school to the scene).

Another Project Idea:  Make a Collage of a Town.  Cut the shapes of different town buildings– houses, stores, church with steeple– with different heights & roof lines– out of different colored construction paper. (Parents/ teachers can help by cutting out template buildings on cardstock, in advance, if necessary.)  Then help the child try out different arrangements of  the cutout building silhouettes on legal or oversized paper.  When satisfied, glue the buildings down.

8.6) For a more advanced project, make 3-D/ Mixed Media House-front or Storefront.

Budding architects who (like George Bailey) want to build great things will enjoy crafting a 3D paint-by-numbers castle. Amazon sells this kit for about $8.

You may have encountered wooden 3-D paint by numbers kits, which come with two or three pre-cut scenery pieces to fit into a shallow (1-1/2” deep) box– allowing for foreground and background(s). (Try Amazon or Rainbow Resource Co.)

If you are in southwestern Pennsylvania, check out the Westmoreland Museum in Greensburg, which currently has two Box Constructions on display, in “The Tides of Provincetown” [Dec. 2011]– Elspeth Halvorsen’s “The World is Watching, 2001” (inspired by the Twin Towers on 9/11), and Varujan Boghosian’s “Untitled, 1973” (a WWII Navy vet-turned-artist, whose reuse of discarded material indicates the persistence of past experiences).

You can create a ‘house’ or ‘store’ in a box frame yourself– by arranging and gluing wood blocks/rectangles/cylinders/dowels, or wooden craft figures (from a store like Michaels), inside a shallow wooden box (such as an unstained wood box from Michaels; a drawer from a jewelry/trinket box; or one of those wooden display boxes meant to hang on a wall and display glass figure, thimbles, etc– but with the shelves or  compartments removed); then paint details onto your house or store.

Or, try cardboard as an inexpensive alternative: Cut a rectangle out of one side of a cereal box to make a box frame; tape or glue toilet paper rolls, and small boxes from soap, toothpaste, candy, etc., inside in the shape of a building.  Cover the boxes with construction paper and poster paint to finish your house or store.

In an online biography, mixed media artist George R. Wazenegger writes "I create wood collage of charming and quaint architectural structures. I do this because of the nostalgia and love of these places which are slow(ly) disappearing" http://www.yessy.com/waz/bio.html

It’s also possible to build up a house-front or storefront without the wooden box frame.  The Southern Alleghenies Museum in Ligonier, PA  just displayed multiple examples by artist George R. Wazenegger.  Using a thin board (such as balsa) as a base (most were 10-15 inches long, 8-12 inches high– many irregular), glue small roughly rectangular or square pieces/scraps/ sticks of wood onto the wood-base, and onto each other, to build up the shape of a cottage or storefront.  Other small wood scraps, or strips of cork or hard sponge, can be glued to form a bit of ground beneath the cottage.  Cork cut in the shape of foliage (sort of a flattened cloud shape) can be glued beside cottage or store to form a bush or a treetop (with a twig for the trunk); the trunk could also be painted on, & the cork foliage painted to represent leaves in any season.  After gluing the basic shapes, paint the housefront or storefront, as well as its background, to add in any details you wish.

8.7) Learn more about Norman Rockwell, the illustrator who became famous for his iconic scenes of American life (first with Boy’s Life magazine, then the Saturday Evening Post).  See especially his Christmas scenes, and those related to WWII:  his depictions of the Four Freedoms from FDR’s speech—Freedom of Speech; of Religion; from Want; from Fear/Tyranny– and to see how he “Welcome[d] the Hero”, ‘”The Homecoming” (May 1945) and “Homecoming Marine” (Oct. 1945).

In Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artists: Norman Rockwell, Mike Venezia emphasizes how Rockwell knew how to tell a story without words.  Draw/color a memorable scene from your own family or community life.  Or, recreate one of Rockwell’s famous scenes using contemporary characters, fashions, objects.  How might you depict the Four Freedoms for today’s (also war-time) generation?

8.8) In affectionate remembrance of the Old Granville place (which Mary lovingly restores), research Victorian home architecture.  Consider how  it differs from at least one other home/building style– neo-Classical, Colonial, Prairie-style or Craftsman, Southwestern, or Contemporary designs.  What are some hallmarks that help you identify a Victorian home, inside or out?

8.9) Research an artist who works/ed with glass, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany or Dale Chihuly.  Perhaps also research Pittsburgh’s glass history– glass as factory product, and as art; or learn more about glass artists in your local community (ex. monks at St. Vincent Archabbey, Latrobe, PA).

8.10) Research the way Angels have been depicted in famous paintings/works of art over the centuries: Did you find Mighty Warriors or Cherubs?  Add your own interpretation: draw, paint, or sculpt an Angel.

9) MUSIC Activities:

9.1) Research, listen to and learn more about one of the songs in the movie: “Buffalo Gals,” “My Wild Irish Rose,” “O Sole Mio,” “I Love You Truly,” “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” “Auld Lang Syne,” or music associated with the Charleston (such as “Runnin Wild” and “Yes, Sir, That’s My Baby”)– and just where DID this Charleston dance originate (?!).

9.2) Research, listen to and learn more about one of the categories of music below:
Irish folk music and/or ballads (in honor of the Baileys)
Italian folk music and/or ballads (in honor of the Martinis); besides “O Sole Mio,” which have become familiar to the general public, or associated with Italian-Americans? (“Volare,” “Santa Lucia,” “Non Dimenticar,” “That’s Amore” ?)
Island music, from Hawaii or Polynesia (in honor of George and Mary’s manufactured honeymoon)
Christmas carols (especially with angels?)
World War II-era music, including big bands and/or songbirds Vera Lynne, Dinah Shore, the Andrews Sisters (We love the CD-collection Songs That Won the War.)  You can also read analyses of the music, like John Bush Jones’ Songs That Fought the War: Popular Music and the Home Front, 1939-1945.
Bell music (in honor of angels getting their wings!). Many colleges and churches have a handbell choir; also, check out the handbell group at the Ligonier Highland Games (in September), and “Cast In Bronze” plays the Carillon (a massive Medieval bell instrument) at the Pittsburgh Renaissance Faire and on CD & DVD.

9.3) RELATED MUSICALS:

  • Christmas-related:A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge (1970); Irving Berlin’s White Christmas; Babes in Toyland (two versions exist: Laurel & Hardy’s 1934, & Disney’s 1961); Madeline’s Christmas; Narnia (musical of The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe); Meet Me in St. Louis
  • WWII-related:South Pacific; The Sound of Music; Cabaret; Irving Berlin’s This is the Army and White Christmas; Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks ; On The Town; also mentioned in Yankee Doodle Dandy (starring James Cagney); and Narnia (musical of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe).  Stage Door Canteen is a war-time romance featuring cameo appearances & songs by many stars of the era (demonstrating their patriotism & support for the troops).
  • James “Jimmy” Stewart-related:Rose Marie (1936, starring Nelson Eddy and Jeannette MacDonald, in which Stewart plays MacDonald’s [non-singing] brother); High Society (1956, with Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Louis Armstrong) is a musical remake of The Philadelphia Story (with Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant)
  • Beulah Bondi (Ma Bailey)-related: Disney’s So Dear to My Heart
  • Time-distortion musicals:A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge (1970); Carousel; Brigadoon
  • Small-town life: Meredith Wilson’s The Music Man; maybe Disney’s Pete’s Dragon; or village life in Brigadoon, and Fiddler on the Roof (also the work of Sheldon Harnick, lyricist for It’s A Wonderful Life)
  • Mary Poppins includes another “run-on-the-bank” scene.
  • Going My Way (1944, starring Bing Crosby) is playing in Bedford Falls when George gets his life back again; try viewing this classic, as well as its sequel The Bells of St. Mary’s (1945, with Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman).

9.4) Prepare and record your own radio play of It’s a Wonderful Life (script, sound, effects, background music …) !

9.5) Learn more about the award-winning duo behind the stage musical, Joe Raposo and Sheldon Harnick.

10) CATHOLIC CONNECTION Activities:

Possible topics for Research/ Discussion:

10.1) Donate to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program (since they are StageRight’s nonprofit partners for this production).
10.2) Research the impact of WWII on Catholics individually or collectively.  (Consider picking a specific country to examine, in terms of civilians & clergy, or Catholics in the military & military chaplains.)  Learn more about Just War Theory and pacifism.
10.3) St. Joseph. St. Matthew. (Why might they be chosen as Clarence’s “supervisors” in the film & musical, respectively.)
10.4) Gifts of the Magi– What are frankincense & myrrh anyway?  (Kevin Orlin Johnson’s Why Do Catholics Do That? gives a wonderful explanation of this– and many other topics.)
10.5) Prayer—its 4 types; its efficacy, according to the Bible, in the lives of specific saints or Church leaders/ teachers, in studies by scientists or sociologists. (Note that Frank Capra’s film opens with a chorus of voices raised in prayer for George, prompting Heaven’s intervention.)
10.6) Angels– what they are, what they do. Biblical appearances/ references. (Clarify that angels are created angels; and how people become saints, but not angels– that this differs from how Clarence is depicted.)
10.7) Respect for the innate value of every Human Life.  Discussion could center on George’s contemplation of suicide, or on the effects of one child never having been born.
10.8)  English activities 1.7 and 1.8 promote a deeper understanding of poetry, and many of the poems mentioned have a Catholic connection (ex. angels, Christmas, Irish stuff).  Track some of these poems back to their source anthologies, and read more:  Is there anything different, or definitively Catholic, about a Catholic poet’s approach to these subjects?  [Anthologies:  Flowers of Heaven: One Thousand Years of Christian Verse, ed. Joseph Pearce; Joyce Kilmer’s Anthology of Catholic Poets (updated 1937, 1939, 1955), eds. Joyce Kilmer & James Edward Tobin; The Harp and the Laurel Wreath, ed. Laura Bercquist]

Based on Philip van Doren Stern’s story “The Greatest Gift” (1943), Frank Capra’s 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life celebrates the life of George Bailey, a good-hearted man who once dreamed of getting a college degree, travelling the world, and building big things (bridges, skyscrapers, airfields!) in the big world, but whose compassion and commitments to family, friends, and neighbors keep him in the small town of Bedford Falls. On the night when George feels most desperate and worthless, his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody intervenes and shows George an “alternate timeline” in which he never existed—leading George to a new appreciation of his town, his people, and himself. The story has been retold since in multiple radio plays, a gender-reversed TV-movie remake It Happened One Christmas (in which Clara Odbody helps one Mary Bailey, who wed George Hatch), and finally, in Sheldon Harnick and Joe Raposo’s popular stage musical It’s a Wonderful Life (1991).

1) ENGLISH/ LITERATURE Activities:

1.1) Hold a Winter or Christmas-themed Spelling Bee for your students/children (with an elementary list & a secondary list, for a mixed age group) — in honor of Pete Bailey, who famously asks how to spell “frankincense” and “hallelujah.” Other suggestions: tintinnabulation; euphony; carillon; belfry; crystalline; nativity; myrrh; magi; (arch)angel; cherubim; seraphim; guardian; dominions; adoration; annunciation; mediatrix; melodious; multitude; merriment; jubilation; radiance; hallowed; majesty; divinity; sovereign; savior; swaddling; shepherd; virgin; immaculate; prophecy; vacancy; pregnant, cradle; manger; prayer; yuletide; glory; choir; hymn; sublime; census; crèche; figurine; Bethlehem; Emmanuel; Christmas; caroling; reindeer; sleigh; velocity; trajectory; (chimney) flue; fruitcake; cocoa; eggnog; wassail; recipe; mistletoe; wreath; tinsel; ornaments; icicle; snowflake; blizzard; avalanche; constellation; sphere; celestial; eternity; illumination; animatronic; automaton; commercialization; coniferous; migration; hibernation; equinox; hypothermia; cryogenic; thermometer/ thermostat.

1.2) George offers to lasso the moon for Mary. This sounds like a “Tall Tale,” so reread the tales of your favorite larger-than-life characters, such as Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, or John Henry. (Perhaps reread “The Devil and Daniel Webster,” since it’s a story about saving a man’s soul—albeit by a skilled New England lawyer rather than a somewhat-inept minor angel.)

1.3) “No man is a failure who has friends.” Recalling Clarence’s famous remark in the film, review (or try to learn) other Famous Sayings or Proverbs.   Consider such sources as:

  • the morals of Aesop’s Fables (or their French retellings by La Fontaine)
  • the Biblical Book of Proverbs
  • Benjamin Franklin and/or Poor Richard’s Almanac
  • other “witty” individuals, like writers William Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde
  • marketing slogans: “Cleanliness is next to godliness.”
  • the Core Knowledge Series of seven books by E.D. Hirsch Jr., What Your Kindergartner Needs To Know through What Your Sixth-Grader Needs To Know (for each book includes proverbs/popular sayings which experts agree should be part of the common knowledge of all American children)

“Tempus Fugit” says Matthew to Clarence in the musical. What does this mean?   How many other famous Latin Phrases can you list and translate?  Begin with the Marine Corps motto “Semper Fi,” and the USA’s “E Pluribus Unum.” Frank Capra’s film begins “in media res;” does the rousing ending illustrate “carpe diem”?

1.4) “Aw, you look like the kinda angel I’d get.”
Consider the character of Clarence Odbody, and discuss why he might be selected as the guardian angel for George Bailey. What makes these two a match? Are they alike in some fundamental ways? Or do they have differences, which will cause George to react in ways beneficial to the story or the mission? (Is it significant that Clarence was a clockmaker? That he carries around a copy of Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; why/ how is that relevant? How would you describe Clarence’s personality—sweet, naïve, bumbling, sort of a failure, or clever & creative in his way, a late bloomer?)

1.5) Trace the Allusions in the script:

  • How does the “David and Goliath” reference suit the late Peter Bailey’s Building & Loan project in Bedford Falls?
  • Why does George refer to Mary Howitt’s poem “The Spider and the Fly” in the scene in Potter’s office, where he considers/ almost agrees to work for Potter?
  • Why is Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer carried by Clarence and passed on to George Bailey? How is it relevant to the story or characters?
  • In the musical, George is described as Atlas carrying Bailey Park on his shoulders. What does this mean?

1.6) Read Philip van Doren Stern’s original story “The Greatest Gift,” and discuss which elements were kept and which changed as it was adapted for film and stage? What is gained or lost by the changes or additions made? Overall, would you say the film and musical turned out better, worse, or as good as the original story?

1.7) Ryhyme

Every time a bell rings
An angel gets his wings.

Since these famous words form a rhymed couplet (two lines whose ending words rhyme), use them as a springboard to introduce or review the Elements of Poetry—especially Rhyme Scheme (using letters of the alphabet to mark the pattern of rhyming end words in a poem). Help your students/children mark the Rhyme Scheme of specific poems using this system: The end word of the first line is labeled ‘A.’ If the end word of the second line rhymes with the first, it is also labeled ‘A;’ if not, it becomes ‘B.’ If the end word of the third line rhymes with the first end word, it’s labeled ‘A;’ if it rhymes with the second end word, it’s another ‘B;’ and if neither, it becomes ‘C’ … and so on.

Ex. Roses are red, –A
Violets are blue, –B
Sugar is sweet, –C
and so are you. –B Rhyme Scheme: ABCB

Ex. “She walks in beauty like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes …”
Rhyme Scheme: ABAB (see Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” for more)

Certain kinds of poems have a predictable rhyme scheme. Limericks are generally humorous 5-line poems (2-long, 2-short, & 1-long line) with the rhyme scheme AABBA. (ex. A Lolligag of Limericks, ed. Myra Cohn Livingston; N.M. Bodecker, A Person From Britain Whose Head of the Shape of the Mitten and other LimericksSonnets are 14-line meditations on a generally serious/mature topic or idea, in one of two forms: The Italian or Petrarchan Sonnet uses a group of 8 lines (octet), then a group of 6 lines (sestet), to convey its meaning; the rhyme scheme is often ABABCDCD EFGEFG, though it can vary. The English or Shakespearean Sonnet uses three 4-line stanzas, then ends with a rhymed couplet, so a typical rhyme scheme would be ABAB CDCD EFEF GG.  Of course, poems made entirely of Rhymed Couplets will be very easy for children to mark. (Ex. Robert Louis Stevenson “Whole Duty of Children;” Joyce Kilmer “Trees;” Richard Armour “Rain;” Theodore Rothke “The Bat;” Doris Frankel “Song of the Truck;” T.S. Eliot “Macavity, the Mystery Cat”)
Sometimes two end words do not rhyme exactly, but are very close—like ‘pain’ and ‘again’ (a-gen, a-gain)—and it’s clear the poet meant them to be a match. This is called slant rhyme, and both words get labeled with the same alphabet letter in the poem’s rhyme scheme.
Free Verse does not rhyme at all; it doesn’t even keep the same length of lines, or same number of beats per line. (Ex. Walt Whitman “I Hear America Singing,” Carl Sandburg “Fog,” and Elias Lieberman “I am an American.”)

Some other elements of Poetry to review (Laura Bercquist’s anthology The Harp and the Laurel Wreath includes valuable explanations of these & other elements):

  • Alliteration (repetition of the same beginning sound in two or more words)
  • Consonance (repetition of a consonant sound in the beginning, middle, or end of words)
  • Assonance (repetition of a vowel sound in the beginning, middle, and end of words)
  • Onomatopoeia (a word that is an expression of a sound—basically the sound itself spelled into a word; ex. hiss, buzz, pop, aargh)
  • Simile (a comparison between two things which uses the words ‘like’ or ‘as’; ex. ‘My luv is like a red, red rose…’)
  • Metaphor (a comparison between two things which does not include the words ‘like’ or ‘as;’ ex. ‘I am the vine; you are the branches.’)
  • Personification (a figure of speech attributing human characteristics or feeling to non-human things)
  • Symbolism (a figure of speech in which one object represents, and calls to mind, another object/person; for example, a hammer might represent a workman, or a poem might speak of ‘the lamb’ instead of naming Jesus Christ specifically.)
  • Imagery (language that conveys what the five senses perceive, ideally to produce a fuller picture in the reader’s mind)
  • Poets often have a favorite source, or field of knowledge, from which they frequently draw imagery, symbols, comparisons, such as nature, or technology/machinery, or religion, or fishing/sailing, or childhood, or sports.
  • Rhythm (basically the regular repetition of stressed and unstressed beats in each line of poem. Four different patterns are iambic, trochaic, anapestic, and dactylic.  Older students could also determine the Meter, named by the number of feet  in the line, such as -4-tetrameter or -5- pentameter; a ‘foot’ would be a group of two or three syllables including one stressed syllable– in basically one of the four rhythmic patterns listed above.)

1.8) Use your poetic knowledge from 1.7 above, to study poems offering various viewpoints on these topics, drawn from It’s a Wonderful Life:

  • Bells (Edgar Allen Poe “The Bells;” Alfred Tennyson ‘Christmas and New Year Bells’/”Ring Out, Wild Bells;” Eleanor Farjeon “School-Bell;” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow “Christmas Bells;” e.e. cummings “anyone lived in a pretty how town”)
  • Angels (Katharine Tynan “Michael the Archangel;” John Henry Newman “Guardian Angel;”  Hilaire Belloc “The Birds;” Edgar Allen Poe “Annabel Lee;” William Blake “The Chimney-Sweeper;” Michael Williams “Michael the Archangel;” W.H. Auden “Chorus of Angels;” plus angel & nativity in Madeleine L’Engle “O Simplicitas,” Three Songs of Mary)
  • Winter (Robert Frost “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “A Patch of Old Snow,” “A Winter Eden,” & “Dust of Snow;” Frank Asch “Sunflakes;” Francis Thompson “To A Snowflake;” Ralph Waldo Emerson “The Snowstorm;” Robert Louis Stevenson “Winter-Time;” Elizabeth Coatsworth “Cat on a Night of Snow;” Jeanne McGahey “Oregon Winter;” from “Snowbound” by John Greenleaf Whittier, in Winter Poems, ed. Barbara Rogasky)
  • Christmas (Clement Clark Moore “A Visit from St. Nicholas;” Walter de la Mare “Santa Claus;” Richard Eberhart “Santa Claus in Oaxaca;” Howard Nemerov “Santa Claus;” Philip Booth “Uncle Christmas;” Phillips Brooks “Christmas Everywhere;” Christina Rossetti “A Christmas Carol;” Eugene Field “Jest ‘Fore Christmas;” GK Chesterton “A Christmas Carol;” Sir John Betjeman “Christmas;” R.S. Thomas “Hill Christmas;” Langston Hughes “Christmas Eve;” T.S. Eliot “The Cultivation of Christmas Trees;” e.e. cummings “little tree;” Peter Cornelius “The Christmas Tree;” Eleanor Farjeon “In the Week when Christmas Comes” & “Holly and Mistletoe;” Countee Cullen “Under the Mistletoe;” Leslie Norris “The Stable Cat;” Norma Farber “Spider;” Edwin Morgan “The Computer’s First Christmas Card;” Gerald William Barrax “Christmas 1959 Et Cetera;” Frank Horne “Kid Stuff;” Carl Sandburg “Star Silver;” Vachel Lindsay “Star of My Heart;” William Carlos Williams “The Gift;” anthologies: American Christmas (1967), eds. Webster Schott & Robert J. Myers; Poems of Christmas (1980) & Christmas Poems (1984), ed. Myra Cohn Livingston)
  • Flowers (William Wordsworth “Daffodils;” Hilda Conkling “Dandelion;” Helen Gray Cone “The Dandelions;” Jane Taylor “The Violet;” Sydney Dobell “The Procession of the Flowers;” Edmund Waller “Go, Lovely Rose;” Ralph Waldo Emerson “The Rhodora”)
  • House(s) (Padraic Colum “An Old Woman of the Roads;” James S. Tippet “Old Log House;” Edgar A. Guest “Home;” Robert Frost “The Census-Taker;” Robert Penn Warren, “The Little White House;” Aileen Fisher “Best Little House”– picture book)
  • WWII, or Military Service (Joyce Kilmer “Prayer of a Soldier in France;” Cecil Roberts “Prayer for a Pilot;” John Gillespie Magee Jr.“High Flight;” T.S. Eliot “Defense of the Islands” & “A Note on War Poetry”)
  • Irish Immigration/Heritage (James B. Dollard “Song of the Little Villages”; legacy of past greatness: Eleanor Rogers Cox “Dreaming of Cities Dead,” “Death of Cuchulain,” & “Gods and Heroes of the Gael;” Edmund Leamy Sr. “Ireland;” Shane Leslie “Ireland, Mother of Priests”)
  • Italian Immigration/Heritage (Thomas Augustine Daly “Leetla Giorgio Washeenton;” Emma Lazarus “The New Colossus”)
  • Suicide (Edwin Arlington Robinson “Richard Cory;” GK Chesterton “Ballade of Suicide;” Hamlet’s “To Be, or Not To Be” soliloquy)
  • Dead/ Non-existent People talking to the Living (everyone in Edgar Lee Masters Spoon River Anthology; John McCrae “In Flanders’ Fields;” Christina Rossetti “After Death” & “Sleeping at Last”)

1.9) During the time George has never been born, he finds his familiar hometown transformed into the nightmare world of Pottersville– a kind of dystopian vision.  The restored Bedford Falls appears as a kind of Utopia, or perfect/ desirable place– a loving Bailey family at its core, surrounded by a network of friendly neighbors quick to offer help and support, and financial security restored, and a renewed sense of purpose/ value in George’s work.

Read & discuss other examples of Utopias & Dystopias in literature (What makes them desirable or undesirable places to live?): Plato’s Republic; Thomas More’s Utopia; Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels; Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The May-Pole of Merry Mount” & “Rappacini’s Daughter;” William Morris’ News From Nowhere; Edward Bellamy’s Looking Backward; Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World; George Orwell’s 1984; Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451; Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time; Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale; Lois Lowry’s The Giver, Gathering Blue, & Messenger; Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Among the Hidden series, as well as Running Out of Time (compare to M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Village); Jeanne du Prau’s City of Ember; Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, & Mockingjay;  stories of King Arthur’s Camelot; and some interpret Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford as female utopias.

A Utopia could also be a travel account of an unspoiled native or natural place (perhaps Thoreau’s Walden, or Life in the Woods), or a recollection of a childhood place (like a secret garden… a perfect summer… perhaps like Garnet’s Thimble Summer, or the fictional Green Knowe by L.M. Boston).  It could be a Commune or Experimental Community, whether political, social or religious– America’s early Puritan colonies; Brook Farm (in which Nathaniel Hawthorne spent some unhappy time); a monastery or convent of a religious order (“The Rule of St. Benedict;” As Great A Right to be Merry; DVD Into Great Silence, etc.); or 1960s/1970s hippie communes.  It could be a Planned City or an Ideal/Planned Community, such as the plans for Washington, D.C.; one time “worker’s paradise” Vandergrift, PA (see Anne Mosher’s Capital’s Utopia); New Deal homestead community Norvelt, PA, providing a fresh start to displaced mineworkers (locally chronicled by Sondra Wolk Shimizzi); or the Seaside community that provided the setting for The Truman Show movie.  Dystopias could also include prison literature, failed experiments (see Marx’s “Communist Manifest” and the culture it spawned in Soltzenitsyn’s One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich & The Gulag Archipelago); or deliberate “Anti-” literature, writing fictional places/situations to criticize an idea or group (such as anti-technology films like The Net, or anti-genetic experimentation/discrimination films likeGattaca or V for Vendetta; or deliberately anti-Catholic literature like The Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk or Lewis’ The Monk).

2) ENGLISH/ WRITING Activities:

2.1) George Bailey never realized the impact his life had on the lives around him. Write a description of (or tribute to) a person who has made a positive difference in your life.
Or, recalling the disasters and eventual triumph of George’s Christmas Eve, describe a turning point in your life, a day full of unexpected developments, or an event that could have had a very different outcome—and reflect on how that has changed you.

2.2) George Bailey’s work helps many citizens to realize their dream of home ownership. Research and write report on someone who made a significant difference by helping with a social problem (such as a saint, inventor, social activist, writer, politician).
Or, conduct an interview with someone you feel is bettering our community today.

2.3) Like Pete Bailey, try your hand at writing a Christmas Play for your class/family to perform. It could be a Nativity story, or the story of a Miracle that takes place on Christmas Eve (like It’s a Wonderful Life, Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Rumer Godden’s Holly and Ivy, Susan Wojciechowski’s The Christmas Miracle of Jonathon Toomey, Ethel Pochoki’s A Penny for a Hundred [an American child’s gift to a German POW]; or even Miracle on 34th Street).

2.4) The Bedford Falls Sentinel proudly announces that local boy, Harry Bailey, is returning home with a Congressional Medal of Honor—and it’s in that newspaper issue that Uncle Billy misplaces $8,000!
Learn more about the events and/or heroes important to your community during WWII. Visit your local library or historical society to view newspapers dated between 1941 and 1946. Do you find many articles about local homecomings? national/international events? Or purely local happenings?
Generate a family or classroom newspaper, focused on your own events and interests, and try to include News, Features, Arts/ Reviews, Food, Sports, and possibly Ads and Announcements (Births, Engagements/Weddings, Obituaries).

2.5) For older students:  View another film or stage-play involving EITHER  Angels, or Time-Distortion/ Time Travel/ Alternate Timelines, then write an essay to compare/contrast, and reflect upon  how & why, Angels or Time are handled in It’s A Wonderful Life and the other film/play.

For Angels, consider The Nativity Story (2006/7, Keisha Castle-Hughes); Wim Wender’s Wings of Desire (1988) and Faraway, So Close! (1993); Heaven Only Knows (1947 angel-western); Angels in the Outfield (1951, when they help the Pittsburgh Pirates) or the Disney remake (1994, no Pirates); or action flicks Constantine (Keanu Reeves) or Legion (Paul Bettany).  Though it lacks angels, the original Heaven Can Wait (1943) focuses on a man reviewing the merits of his earthly life from the afterlife.

For Timeplay, consider Washington Irving’s story “Rip van Winkle” or Ray Bradbury’s story “The Fox and The Forest;” H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine (book, multiple films); Thornton Wilder’s Our Town (play or film); Sutton Vane’s Outward Bound (play or film, re: suicide); The Portrait of Jenny (Joseph Cotten; Jennifer Jones); Groundhog Day (Bill Murray); Frequency (Dennis Quaid, Jim Caviezel); The Lake House (Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bulllock); Sliding Doors (Gwenyth Paltrow); possibly Back to the Future or The Terminator movies; Stargate: Continuum or other sci fi (like Original Star Trek’s “Mirror, Mirror” & “The City on the Edge of Forever” episodes); and possible musicals A Christmas Carol or Scrooge; Carousel; or Brigadoon.

3) MATH Activities:

3.1) If Zuzu holds a flower with 12 petals on it, while George Bailey hides 3 petals in his pocket, how many petals did Zuzu’s flower have to begin with?
Express as a fraction the amount of petals Zuzu’s flower has lost.
What percentage of petals has Zuzu’s flower lost?

If Zuzu’s flower began with 24 petals, and still lost 3, how many petals would it have now?
What fraction of petals still remains?
What percentage of petals still remains?

3.2) If the year is 1946, and Clarence is 293 years old, in what year was Clarence born?
If George Bailey was 12 years old in 1919, how old is George when he meets Clarence in 1946?

3.3) George Bailey desperately needs $8,000. If Mary collects $2,350 around Bedford Falls, and Sam Wainright advances George $25,000 more, by how much does the generosity of George’s friends and neighbors exceed his debt?

3.4) According to Mr. Potter, George Bailey earns $45 per week, and saves perhaps $10 per week. How much money, then, does George earn in a year? What are the Baileys’ expenses for one year? And how much does George save in a year? What percentage of his income does George save each week?
Mr. Potter offers to pay George $20,000 per year to be his employee. How much more would George earn in one year if he worked for Potter? Assuming the same expenses as before, how much money would George save in a year of working for Potter?
Assuming pay & expenses stay the same, how long (years, weeks?) would it take George to save that same amount of money—total money saved in one year under Potter—at his current job?

3.5) If Zuzu dreams of a flower garden with 15 rows of 15 pink flowers, 10 rows of 12 yellow flowers, and 13 rows of 13 purple flowers, how many flowers total appear in Zuzu’s dream?

3.6) If the high school swimming pool is 60 feet long and 40 feet wide, what area of flooring is needed to cover it during a dance? If one third of the pool is 5 feet deep, one third is 10 feet deep, and on third of the pool is 15 feet deep, what volume of water does the pool hold?

3.7) Ernie’s home in Bailey Park is worth $5,000. If the home increases in value by 8% in one year, what will the home be worth then? If it increases in value by 8% every year, what will the home be worth in another 5 years?

3.8) Besides Clarence, another 50 angels are hoping to get their wings. Bedford Falls has one church bell tower; it rings once at one o’clock, twice at two o’clock, thrice at three o’clock, and so on. How many bells will ring out in a twelve-hour period—and will that be enough for Clarence and his friends to get their wings?

3.9) One summer day, Mr. Gower buys frozen ice cream treats on a stick at 3 for $.25, and young George sells them all at 2 for $.25. If Gower’s made a profit of $1.00 that day, how many ice cream treats were sold.

3.10) Play with Time: A fast clock gains one minute per hour, and a slow clock loses two minutes per hour. Initially, both clocks are set to the correct time. Less than 24 hours later, the fast clock registers 9 o’clock at the same moment the slow clock registers 8 o’clock. What is the correct time at that moment?

4) SOCIAL STUDIES/GEOGRAPHY Activities:

4.1) Make a map of New York State (in which Van Doren’s Bedford Falls is located), including the cities of Rochester, Buffalo, and New York City (all mentioned in the film).  Add the Hudson and Mohawk rivers, and Lakes Ontario, Erie, and Champlain. Add the state capital, and (any) four other cities to your map. Finally, indicate the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains. (Which of these mountain ranges is older? How could you tell?)

4.2) Using an atlas or globe, locate the following places George Bailey hoped to visit: New York, NY; Tahiti, the Fiji Islands (Mary picks island music for their homemade honeymoon); Italy, Greece; and the Yukon. What could George have seen/experienced in each place?

The musical features the hope of travel to Europe.  Map present-day Europe in its entirety.  Make a point of locating & marking the three cities George & Mary picked for their honeymoon: Paris, Budapest, and Rome.  In terms of area, which are Europe’s five largest countries? Which are its five smallest? (Did you remember to map Liechtenstein, Monaco, Andorra, San Marino, and the Holy See/ Vatican state?)   See also Social Studies/Economics 6.3, and answer the questions for five European countries.

4.3) Create a map of Europe as it was in 1650; create another of the “New World” /Western Hemisphere—countries, colonies, territories, or settlements- in 1650. (Presumably Clarence was born into 1650s Europe or America; which would you guess?) If you wish, map the other continents as they were in 1650 for a complete world view.

4.4) Create 3 maps of Europe, showing the continent before, during, and after World War II (for example, in 1938, 1943, and 1947).
(Any quality European History textbook should include this info, but for those who love to learn through maps, Ronald Storey’s Concise Historical Atlas of World War Two [Oxford UP, 2006] provides an overview of the entire conflict through a series of 50 maps, each with a companion page of historical discussion.)

4.5) Make a map of present-day Afghanistan, and make a special effort to identify places where American marines and soldiers are serving today. Visit anysoldier.com for locations and requested items so you can prepare letters and/or a care package; or send a care package through the USO—still going strong since ‘Mary Bailey’ volunteered with it in the 1940s.

5) SOCIAL STUDIES/ HISTORY Activities:

5.1) Research the history of the U.S. Marine Corps, especially their service during World War II.

5.2) Research World War II, as referenced by this film/musical:

On the Homefront: Mary helped with the USO; Ma Bailey and Mrs. Hatch with the Red Cross; Mr. Gower sold war bonds; George dealt with tire drives; shortages/rationing; and served as an air raid warden;  Mr. Potter ran the draft board. (An interesting fact:  About 2/3 of  U.S. WWII veterans were drafted, versus only 1/4 of Vietnam vets.)  Other residents planted Victory Gardens, attended church & prayed.

WWII  Overseas: According to the film, Bedford Falls residents fought in the campaigns in North Africa;
parachuted into France; and helped take the Remagen Bridge.  Where & when would these be?
Harry Bailey became a decorated (Navy) flier, saving men on a  transport– would you guess this to have happened in the Pacific?  What were some of the major events of the War in the Pacific?

Some sources we’ve used, Gr 4/5- up:  Penny Colman, Rosie the Riveter: Woman Working on the Home Front in World War II; Scholastic Encyclopedia of the United States at War; DK Eyewitness World War II; Usborne World War Stories & True Stories of D-Day; Ronald Storey, A Concise Historical Atlas of World War II; Michael Lyons, World War II: A Short History; the classic Victory at Sea and History Channel’s Battle 360 Pacific DVD sets; World War II and Military History magazines; Time-Life Commemorative magazines on D-Day & America’s Victory; Gordon L. Rottman, FUBAR: Soldier Slang of World War II; Sledge (Marine memoir), With the Old Breed at Peleliu and Okinawa; R.G. Grant, New Perspectives: Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and books & media for all age groups from the NCCHE (National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education) Resource Room in Seton Hill University’s Reeves Library.

Some books from a younger child’s perspective:  Michael Foreman, A Country Childhood: War Boy (a memoir of Pakefield, Suffolk, England); Kushner/ Sendak, Brundibar (allegory of Jewish oppression);  Japanese atomic survivor memories:  Junko Marimoto’s My Hiroshima, Toshi Maruki’s Hiroshima No Pika, and Eleanor Coerr’s Sadako (a picture book version of  her longer work, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes).  Other youth novels by Hilda van Stockum, The Mitchells: Five for Victory and The Winged Watchmen, depict wartime childhoods in the USA and Holland, respectively.  From the English side, try Rumer Godden’s An Episode of Sparrows, or Roald Dahl’s autobiographical Going Solo & his first published story “A Piece of Cake.”

Some websites to check:   The National Archives: 1937-1945;   BBC Primary History: Children of World War 2;   neoK12: World War II;   and some HD videos available at History.com

Historical Cookbooks: Joanne Lamb Hayes’ Grandma’s Wartime Kitchen (with Jean Anderson) & Grandma’s Wartime Baking Book; Jill Norman’s Eating for Victory; Marguerite Patten’s Victory Cookbook (UK)

5.3) Mr. Potter calls George Bailey a “nursemaid to a bunch of garlic-eaters.”  Research Irish Immigration to America as background for the Baileys.
Then research Italian Immigration– the probable story of the Martinis.  Besides “garlic-eaters,” what other derogatory terms were applied to Italian-Americans?
Consider a visit to the Immigrant Museum in Johnstown, PA; also the Johnstown Flood Museum & Incline.

5.4) We see George dressed in a football jersey, and know that Harry played.  Research the history of Football –especially the local Latrobe, PA connection.

5.5) Building Big:  Modern Cities.  Pick a major metropolis (such as New York, Paris, Budapest, or Rome), and research what it was like in four different decades, or if possible, four different centuries.

6) SOCIAL STUDIES/ ECONOMICS Activities:

6.1) Explore the American Dream of home-ownership– long a symbol of American financial & familial success and stability. Research & compare statistics on this in 1946 (post-war) and the present-day; also explore changing floorplans & home prices over the past century.
Finally, consider the pros & cons of owning vs. renting today. (Financial guru Suzie Orman, for example, may be questioning the value of home-ownership for the current generation of Americans.)

6.2) Learn about types of depository institutions: what’s the difference between a bank, a credit union, and a savings & loan (or building & loan)?  What types of accounts, or savings options, are available?  In general, what are the types of loans people take on– what are the usual reasons for borrowing? Which loans tend to carry the highest interest rates (and what do fixed & variable rates mean) ? (Could there be other costs, besides interest, associated with borrowing?)

6.3) Potter to George Bailey: “Why, you’re worth more dead than alive.”  Research the Avg. Net Worth/ Buying Power of a citizen in 10 different countries countries, including the USA– info often included in an atlas.  Note also the Gross Domestic Product (GDP)s of these countries.  Note also their population density.  Do you notice any relationship or pattern between these figures; why or why not?

6.4) George has a $15,000 life insurance policy, with $500 equity.  Learn some Life insurance basics: what are the differences between term life policies, and whole life?  How do people determine how much coverage they need? What would be your best guess regarding what George’s policy was meant to do (for example, pay off George & Mary’s home mortgage; provide Mary & the kids with living expenses for X amount of time; cover funeral expenses; etc.)?

6.5) Inflation.  (If $5000 gets Ernie a decent house in the 1940s, why not today?  Explain how prices can be so different today!)

6.6) The Baileys find it disturbing that Henry Potter owns many (all?) rental properties in Bedford Falls– and also takes control of the bank from which people would need to borrow money in order to purchase a home. Find the definition of a “monopoly.”  Does this fit Potter’s operation? Are there other terms that would better describe Potter’s business practices?

6.7) Research Bank disasters/failures, esp. in 1929 (beginning the Great Depression)– as featured in the musical– and on contemporary Wall Street.

7) SCIENCE Activities:

Possible Research topics:

7.1) Safety on Ice. Safety during Winter play (frostbite, hypothermia).
7.2) Experiment to determine the best melting agents for ice.
7.3) Bells. Sound.

7.4) Young George loses hearing in one ear.  Learn more about the structure & function of the ear. What causes Hearing Loss or Deafness? What treatments are available– or how do people adapt to living without hearing? (Learn how to sign a few words, from American Sign Language.)

7.5) George’s father suffers a stroke.  Research Strokes– what is a stroke; what are the risk factors/ suggestions for prevention?
7.6)  Research Diphtheria– cause, symptoms/risks, treatment.  What sort of treatment was Mr. Gower likely preparing when he made his mistake with the baby’s prescription?

7.7) Review ways to keep people and/or the environment safe from Poisoning— ex. Pest Control; Household Cleaning Products; Makeup, Food, OTC & Rx Medicines; Paint; Waste or Chemical Disposal; Forensic science/ Criminal use of poisons.
7.8) Learn more about the Development of Medicines– and the development of Poisons, since the two are often related (or have been mistaken for each other, in history).  Toxic! Killer Cures and Other Poisonings by Susie Hodge makes this point; Hodge also recommends John Elmsley’s The Elements of Murder: A History of Poison, Peter Macinnis’ Poisons, R.M. Youngson’s Scientific Blunders, and Bee Wilson’s Swindled: The Dark History of Food Fraud, from Poisoned Candy to Counterfeit Coffee.  For a stronger medical focus, consider Fran Balkwill and Mic Rolph’s Microbes, Bugs, and Wonder-Drugs: Potions to Penicillin, Aspirin to Addiction.  Perhaps pick a specific pharmacy school or  pharmaceutical company to research.

7.9) Since Clarence was once a clockmaker, research Clocks/ History of Timekeeping.

Here are some topic ideas (courtesy of Ken Sobol’s The Clock Museum, 1967):  Ancient times– obelisks, sun dials, water clocks,  King Alfred’s candle clock, Chinese fire clocks, Tibetan sun-sticks, stone calendars (ex. Stonehenge); Medieval times– waterwheel clocks with escapement, mechanical clocks with spindle, tower clocks (some with moving figures), sandglasses; 1500s– pocket sundials, jewelled pocket-watches, Peter Heinlein, “Nuremburg eggs,” birdcage or lantern clocks, first clockmakers’ guild; “Great Age of Clock-Making: 1500-1800”– spring clocks, pendulum clocks, automata, James Cox (b. England, c.1715), Prince Potemkin of Russia’s “Peacock clock;” Sailors’ timepieces, 1700s– chronometers, gimbals; American clocks, 1700s– grandfather clocks, mass production, “pillar-and-scroll” clocks, also “banjo,” “acorn,” “minstrel,” “wag-on-the-wall;”  World War I– wristwatches; Scientific clocks– quartz-crystal, atomic clocks.

Is there a future for clock-making– alarm clocks, wristwatches, anything– in the age of cell phones, i-pods, etc.?

7.10) Snow/Snowflakes:  The snow stops falling when George ceases to exist, and returns when he gets his life back– so learn more about them. Young readers will enjoy Jacqueline Briggs Martin’s informational picture book Snowflake Bentley, about a pioneer in the study of snowflakes; older students might enjoy Wilson A. Bentley’s Snow Crystals itself.  Where and why might people study snow today?  Consider meteorology/ weather prediction.  What else can be studied in snowbound or arctic climates?  Research explorers of/ expeditions to the North and South Poles. (At least one IMAX film exists on Shackleton’s amazing survival story.)  What projects are undertaken in Antarctica today?  What goes on in the Arctic circle (ex. William F. Althoff, Drift Stations: Arctic Outposts of Superpower Science)?

7.11) Since George offers to lasso the moon, research the Moon– its size & features, its exploration.

7.12) Since George recommends coconut to Mary, research the Coconut.  Is it a fruit, vegetable, or nut?  Was it really used in/as an IV  by WWII medics in the Pacific?

7.13) Glass– what it is, how it’s made (from the past to the present). Consider field-tripping to one of Pittsburgh’s glass-related sites.
7.14) Research Plastics, since they provide Sam Wainwright with a fortune (while George misses out on the opportunity).

7.15) Mr. Potter is compared to one, so research Spiders.  How do arachnids differ from insects? All spiders have spinnerets, but not all of them are orb-spinners who wait on their webs for prey (like Potter).  How do the other spiders behave?  How do these spiders differ physically from orb-spinners?  Finally, Read a spider-related tale from Folklore:  Arachne from Greek Mythology; the Spider-Woman from Native-American lore; or Anansi from Ashanti tales, Ghana.

7.16) In honor or Zuzu’s flower, learn about the Anatomy of a Flower.  (Consider a bulb dissection kit for a hands-on approach.)  Experiment to see if Fragrance or Color is more attractive to bees and/or butterflies.

7.17) Study the Anatomy of a Tree.  In the film, a distraught George damages a neighbor’s tree with his car– but later ends up happily beside his own family Christmas tree.

7.18) George dreams of Building Big:  Research Bridges and Skyscrapers.
7.19) Airplanes/ Forces of Flight.

7.20) Physics of “the Impossible”: Time Travel, & Alternate Realities/ Timelines.  Surprisingly, physicist Michio Kaku, author of Physics of the Impossible, tells us that there are few  ‘impossibilities’ which truly violate the laws of physics– so most are considered impossible  because we don’t yet have the technology figured out.

7.21) Learn about the effects of Alcohol Consumption on the human body (such as Uncle Billy!).  What constitutes drunkenness, and alcoholism?

8) ART/ ARCHITECTURE Activities:

George Bailey rescuing his brother from the ice, in this coloring page depicting a scene from It's a Wonderful Life.

8.1) Little ones will enjoy coloring this picture of George Bailey rescuing his brother from the ice.

8.2) Cut out paper snowflakes.  Some editions of Jacqueline Briggs Martin’s informational picture book Snowflake Bentley (recounting Wilson A. Bentley’s lifelong effort to photograph and study snowflakes) come with a booklet of snowflake patterns; but other such pattern books exist (ex. Peggy Edwards Make Your Own Snowflakes, or Dover Coloring Books Snowflakes). (Creativity for Kids also produces a kit for assembling snowflakes out of pearl-like beads.)

Learn more about other paper-cut art, perhaps from the Amish/Pennsylvania Deutch, or Polish falk art traditions, or the amazing book illustrations of David Wisniewski (Elfwyn’s Saga; Golem; and many others).

8.3) Make a snowglobe.  Again, a pre-packaged kit is available with plastic globe base & top, clay for making a figure(s) for inside, water and glitter.  We’ve made our own using a carefully-cleaned large-sized glass baby food jar (though mustard, olive, cherry, any jar would do) with baked clay figures (like a snowman) or plastic trinkets (from gumball machines, dollar stores, Michaels) superglued inside the lid –and, yes, filled with silver glitter and water.

8.4) In honor of Zuzu’s beloved posy, practice drawing flowers– individually, or grouped as a Still Life. Visit the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg for ideas and suggestions, or use one of the many How-to-Draw books (ex. Draw 100 Flowers) at your local bookstore.

8.5) Because Bedford Falls is so important to this story, create your own Street Scene/ Town Storefronts (paper).  For young children, take a legal-sized sheet of paper and fold it accordian-style to create five rectangular sections. Lay the paper flat and help the children use the folds as guidelines for the sides of their buildings. Let the children draw five storefronts– or, four buildings, making one of the buildings two folds wide (this works well for adding a church or school to the scene).

Another Project Idea:  Make a Collage of a Town.  Cut the shapes of different town buildings– houses, stores, church with steeple– with different heights & roof lines– out of different colored construction paper. (Parents/ teachers can help by cutting out template buildings on cardstock, in advance, if necessary.)  Then help the child try out different arrangements of  the cutout building silhouettes on legal or oversized paper.  When satisfied, glue the buildings down.

8.6) For a more advanced project, make 3-D/ Mixed Media House-front or Storefront.

Budding architects who (like George Bailey) want to build great things will enjoy crafting a 3D paint-by-numbers castle. Amazon sells this kit for about $8.

You may have encountered wooden 3-D paint by numbers kits, which come with two or three pre-cut scenery pieces to fit into a shallow (1-1/2” deep) box– allowing for foreground and background(s). (Try Amazon or Rainbow Resource Co.)

If you are in southwestern Pennsylvania, check out the Westmoreland Museum in Greensburg, which currently has two Box Constructions on display, in “The Tides of Provincetown” [Dec. 2011]– Elspeth Halvorsen’s “The World is Watching, 2001” (inspired by the Twin Towers on 9/11), and Varujan Boghosian’s “Untitled, 1973” (a WWII Navy vet-turned-artist, whose reuse of discarded material indicates the persistence of past experiences).

You can create a ‘house’ or ‘store’ in a box frame yourself– by arranging and gluing wood blocks/rectangles/cylinders/dowels, or wooden craft figures (from a store like Michaels), inside a shallow wooden box (such as an unstained wood box from Michaels; a drawer from a jewelry/trinket box; or one of those wooden display boxes meant to hang on a wall and display glass figure, thimbles, etc– but with the shelves or  compartments removed); then paint details onto your house or store.

Or, try cardboard as an inexpensive alternative: Cut a rectangle out of one side of a cereal box to make a box frame; tape or glue toilet paper rolls, and small boxes from soap, toothpaste, candy, etc., inside in the shape of a building.  Cover the boxes with construction paper and poster paint to finish your house or store.

In an online biography, mixed media artist George R. Wazenegger writes "I create wood collage of charming and quaint architectural structures. I do this because of the nostalgia and love of these places which are slow(ly) disappearing" http://www.yessy.com/waz/bio.html

It’s also possible to build up a house-front or storefront without the wooden box frame.  The Southern Alleghenies Museum in Ligonier, PA  just displayed multiple examples by artist George R. Wazenegger.  Using a thin board (such as balsa) as a base (most were 10-15 inches long, 8-12 inches high– many irregular), glue small roughly rectangular or square pieces/scraps/ sticks of wood onto the wood-base, and onto each other, to build up the shape of a cottage or storefront.  Other small wood scraps, or strips of cork or hard sponge, can be glued to form a bit of ground beneath the cottage.  Cork cut in the shape of foliage (sort of a flattened cloud shape) can be glued beside cottage or store to form a bush or a treetop (with a twig for the trunk); the trunk could also be painted on, & the cork foliage painted to represent leaves in any season.  After gluing the basic shapes, paint the housefront or storefront, as well as its background, to add in any details you wish.

8.7) Learn more about Norman Rockwell, the illustrator who became famous for his iconic scenes of American life (first with Boy’s Life magazine, then the Saturday Evening Post).  See especially his Christmas scenes, and those related to WWII:  his depictions of the Four Freedoms from FDR’s speech—Freedom of Speech; of Religion; from Want; from Fear/Tyranny– and to see how he “Welcome[d] the Hero”, ‘”The Homecoming” (May 1945) and “Homecoming Marine” (Oct. 1945).

In Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artists: Norman Rockwell, Mike Venezia emphasizes how Rockwell knew how to tell a story without words.  Draw/color a memorable scene from your own family or community life.  Or, recreate one of Rockwell’s famous scenes using contemporary characters, fashions, objects.  How might you depict the Four Freedoms for today’s (also war-time) generation?

8.8) In affectionate remembrance of the Old Granville place (which Mary lovingly restores), research Victorian home architecture.  Consider how  it differs from at least one other home/building style– neo-Classical, Colonial, Prairie-style or Craftsman, Southwestern, or Contemporary designs.  What are some hallmarks that help you identify a Victorian home, inside or out?

8.9) Research an artist who works/ed with glass, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany or Dale Chihuly.  Perhaps also research Pittsburgh’s glass history– glass as factory product, and as art; or learn more about glass artists in your local community (ex. monks at St. Vincent Archabbey, Latrobe, PA).

8.10) Research the way Angels have been depicted in famous paintings/works of art over the centuries: Did you find Mighty Warriors or Cherubs?  Add your own interpretation: draw, paint, or sculpt an Angel.

9) MUSIC Activities:

9.1) Research, listen to and learn more about one of the songs in the movie: “Buffalo Gals,” “My Wild Irish Rose,” “O Sole Mio,” “I Love You Truly,” “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” “Auld Lang Syne,” or music associated with the Charleston (such as “Runnin Wild” and “Yes, Sir, That’s My Baby”)– and just where DID this Charleston dance originate (?!).

9.2) Research, listen to and learn more about one of the categories of music below:
Irish folk music and/or ballads (in honor of the Baileys)
Italian folk music and/or ballads (in honor of the Martinis); besides “O Sole Mio,” which have become familiar to the general public, or associated with Italian-Americans? (“Volare,” “Santa Lucia,” “Non Dimenticar,” “That’s Amore” ?)
Island music, from Hawaii or Polynesia (in honor of George and Mary’s manufactured honeymoon)
Christmas carols (especially with angels?)
World War II-era music, including big bands and/or songbirds Vera Lynne, Dinah Shore, the Andrews Sisters (We love the CD-collection Songs That Won the War.)  You can also read analyses of the music, like John Bush Jones’ Songs That Fought the War: Popular Music and the Home Front, 1939-1945.
Bell music (in honor of angels getting their wings!). Many colleges and churches have a handbell choir; also, check out the handbell group at the Ligonier Highland Games (in September), and “Cast In Bronze” plays the Carillon (a massive Medieval bell instrument) at the Pittsburgh Renaissance Faire and on CD & DVD.

9.3) RELATED MUSICALS:

  • Christmas-related:A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge (1970); Irving Berlin’s White Christmas; Babes in Toyland (two versions exist: Laurel & Hardy’s 1934, & Disney’s 1961); Madeline’s Christmas; Narnia (musical of The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe); Meet Me in St. Louis
  • WWII-related:South Pacific; The Sound of Music; Cabaret; Irving Berlin’s This is the Army and White Christmas; Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks ; On The Town; also mentioned in Yankee Doodle Dandy (starring James Cagney); and Narnia (musical of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe).  Stage Door Canteen is a war-time romance featuring cameo appearances & songs by many stars of the era (demonstrating their patriotism & support for the troops).
  • James “Jimmy” Stewart-related:Rose Marie (1936, starring Nelson Eddy and Jeannette MacDonald, in which Stewart plays MacDonald’s [non-singing] brother); High Society (1956, with Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Louis Armstrong) is a musical remake of The Philadelphia Story (with Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant)
  • Beulah Bondi (Ma Bailey)-related: Disney’s So Dear to My Heart
  • Time-distortion musicals:A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge (1970); Carousel; Brigadoon
  • Small-town life: Meredith Wilson’s The Music Man; maybe Disney’s Pete’s Dragon; or village life in Brigadoon, and Fiddler on the Roof (also the work of Sheldon Harnick, lyricist for It’s A Wonderful Life)
  • Mary Poppins includes another “run-on-the-bank” scene.
  • Going My Way (1944, starring Bing Crosby) is playing in Bedford Falls when George gets his life back again; try viewing this classic, as well as its sequel The Bells of St. Mary’s (1945, with Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman).

9.4) Prepare and record your own radio play of It’s a Wonderful Life (script, sound, effects, background music …) !

9.5) Learn more about the award-winning duo behind the stage musical, Joe Raposo and Sheldon Harnick.

10) CATHOLIC CONNECTION Activities:

Possible topics for Research/ Discussion:

10.1) Donate to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program (since they are StageRight’s nonprofit partners for this production).
10.2) Research the impact of WWII on Catholics individually or collectively.  (Consider picking a specific country to examine, in terms of civilians & clergy, or Catholics in the military & military chaplains.)  Learn more about Just War Theory and pacifism.
10.3) St. Joseph. St. Matthew. (Why might they be chosen as Clarence’s “supervisors” in the film & musical, respectively.)
10.4) Gifts of the Magi– What are frankincense & myrrh anyway?  (Kevin Orlin Johnson’s Why Do Catholics Do That? gives a wonderful explanation of this– and many other topics.)
10.5) Prayer—its 4 types; its efficacy, according to the Bible, in the lives of specific saints or Church leaders/ teachers, in studies by scientists or sociologists. (Note that Frank Capra’s film opens with a chorus of voices raised in prayer for George, prompting Heaven’s intervention.)
10.6) Angels– what they are, what they do. Biblical appearances/ references. (Clarify that angels are created angels; and how people become saints, but not angels– that this differs from how Clarence is depicted.)
10.7) Respect for the innate value of every Human Life.  Discussion could center on George’s contemplation of suicide, or on the effects of one child never having been born.
10.8)  English activities 1.7 and 1.8 promote a deeper understanding of poetry, and many of the poems mentioned have a Catholic connection (ex. angels, Christmas, Irish stuff).  Track some of these poems back to their source anthologies, and read more:  Is there anything different, or definitively Catholic, about a Catholic poet’s approach to these subjects?  [Anthologies:  Flowers of Heaven: One Thousand Years of Christian Verse, ed. Joseph Pearce; Joyce Kilmer’s Anthology of Catholic Poets (updated 1937, 1939, 1955), eds. Joyce Kilmer & James Edward Tobin; The Harp and the Laurel Wreath, ed. Laura Bercquist]

The Devil and Tom Walker by Washington Irving. A few miles from Boston, in Massachusetts, there is a deep inlet winding several miles into the interior of the country from Charles Bay, and terminating in a thickly wooded swamp or morass. On one side of this inlet is a beautiful dark grove on the opposite side the land rises abruptly from the waters edge into a high ridge, on which grow a few scattered oaks of The Devil ( Old Scratch) temptation.

    Based on Philip van Doren Stern’s story “The Greatest Gift” (1943), Frank Capra’s 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life celebrates the life of George Bailey, a good-hearted man who once dreamed of getting a college degree, travelling the world, and building big things (bridges, skyscrapers, airfields!) in the big world, but whose compassion and commitments to family, friends, and neighbors keep him in the small town of Bedford Falls. On the night when George feels most desperate and worthless, his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody intervenes and shows George an “alternate timeline” in which he never existed—leading George to a new appreciation of his town, his people, and himself. The story has been retold since in multiple radio plays, a gender-reversed TV-movie remake It Happened One Christmas (in which Clara Odbody helps one Mary Bailey, who wed George Hatch), and finally, in Sheldon Harnick and Joe Raposo’s popular stage musical It’s a Wonderful Life (1991).

    1) ENGLISH/ LITERATURE Activities:

    1.1) Hold cashnetusa phone number customer service Winter or Christmas-themed Spelling Bee for your students/children (with an elementary list & a secondary list, for a mixed age group) — in honor of Pete Bailey, who famously asks how to spell “frankincense” and “hallelujah.” Other suggestions: tintinnabulation; euphony; carillon; belfry; crystalline; nativity; myrrh; magi; (arch)angel; cherubim; seraphim; guardian; dominions; adoration; annunciation; mediatrix; melodious; multitude; merriment; jubilation; radiance; hallowed; majesty; divinity; sovereign; savior; swaddling; shepherd; virgin; immaculate; prophecy; vacancy; pregnant, cradle; manger; prayer; yuletide; glory; choir; hymn; sublime; census; crèche; figurine; Bethlehem; Emmanuel; Christmas; caroling; reindeer; sleigh; velocity; trajectory; (chimney) flue; fruitcake; cocoa; eggnog; wassail; recipe; mistletoe; wreath; tinsel; ornaments; icicle; snowflake; blizzard; avalanche; constellation; sphere; celestial; eternity; illumination; animatronic; automaton; commercialization; coniferous; migration; hibernation; equinox; hypothermia; cryogenic; thermometer/ thermostat.

    1.2) George offers to lasso the moon for Mary. This sounds like a “Tall Tale,” so reread the tales of your favorite larger-than-life characters, such as Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, or John Henry. (Perhaps reread “The Devil and Daniel Webster,” since it’s a story about saving a man’s soul—albeit by a skilled New England lawyer rather than a somewhat-inept minor angel.)

    1.3) “No man is a failure who has friends.” Recalling Clarence’s famous remark in the film, review (or try to learn) other Famous Sayings or Proverbs.   Consider such sources as:

    • the morals of Aesop’s Fables (or their French retellings by La Fontaine)
    • the Biblical Book of Proverbs
    • Benjamin Franklin and/or Poor Richard’s Almanac
    • other “witty” individuals, like writers William Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde
    • marketing slogans: “Cleanliness is next to godliness.”
    • the Core Knowledge Series of seven books by E.D. Hirsch Jr., What Your Kindergartner Needs To Know through What Your Sixth-Grader Needs To Know (for each book includes proverbs/popular sayings which experts agree should be part of the common knowledge of all American children)

    “Tempus Fugit” says Matthew to Clarence in the musical. What does this mean?   How many other famous Latin Phrases can you list and translate?  Begin with the Marine Corps motto “Semper Fi,” and the USA’s “E Pluribus Unum.” Frank Capra’s film begins “in media res;” does the rousing ending illustrate “carpe diem”?

    1.4) “Aw, you look like the kinda angel I’d get.”
    Consider the character of Clarence Odbody, and discuss why he might be selected as the guardian angel for George Bailey. What makes these two a match? Are they alike in some fundamental ways? Or do they have differences, which will cause George to react in ways beneficial to the story or the mission? (Is it significant that Clarence was a clockmaker? That he carries around a copy of Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; why/ how is that relevant? How would you describe Clarence’s personality—sweet, naïve, bumbling, sort of a failure, or clever & creative in his way, a late bloomer?)

    1.5) Trace the Allusions in the script:

    • How does the “David and Goliath” reference suit the late Peter Bailey’s Building & Loan project in Bedford Falls?
    • Why does George refer to Mary Howitt’s poem “The Spider and the Fly” in the scene in Potter’s office, where he considers/ almost agrees to work for Potter?
    • Why is Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer carried by Clarence and passed on to George Bailey? How is it relevant to the story or characters?
    • In the musical, George is described as Atlas carrying Bailey Park on his shoulders. What does this mean?

    1.6) Read Philip van Doren Stern’s original story “The Greatest Gift,” and discuss which elements were kept and which changed as it was adapted for film and stage? What is gained or lost by the changes or additions made? Overall, would you say the film and musical turned out better, worse, or as good as the original story?

    1.7) Ryhyme

    Every time a bell rings
    An angel gets his wings.

    Since these famous words form a rhymed couplet (two lines whose ending words rhyme), use them as a springboard to introduce or review the Elements of Poetry—especially Rhyme Scheme (using letters of the alphabet to mark the pattern of rhyming end words in a poem). Help your students/children mark the Rhyme Scheme of specific poems using this system: The end word of the first line is labeled ‘A.’ If the end word of the second line rhymes with the first, it is also labeled ‘A;’ if not, it becomes ‘B.’ If the end word of the third line rhymes with the first end word, it’s labeled ‘A;’ if it rhymes with the second end word, it’s another ‘B;’ and if neither, it becomes ‘C’ … and so on.

    Ex. Roses are red, –A
    Violets are blue, –B
    Sugar is sweet, –C
    and so are you. –B Rhyme Scheme: ABCB

    Ex. “She walks in beauty like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies
    And all that’s best of dark and bright
    Meets in her aspect and her eyes …”
    Rhyme Scheme: ABAB (see Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” for more)

    Certain kinds of poems have a predictable rhyme scheme. Limericks are generally humorous 5-line poems (2-long, 2-short, & 1-long line) with the rhyme scheme AABBA. (ex. A Lolligag of Limericks, ed. Myra Cohn Livingston; N.M. Bodecker, A Person From Britain Whose Head of the Shape of the Mitten and other LimericksSonnets are 14-line meditations on a generally serious/mature topic or idea, in one of two forms: The Italian or Petrarchan Sonnet uses a group of 8 lines (octet), then a group of 6 lines (sestet), to convey its meaning; the rhyme scheme is often ABABCDCD EFGEFG, though it can vary. The English or Shakespearean Sonnet uses three 4-line stanzas, then ends with a rhymed couplet, so a typical rhyme scheme would be ABAB CDCD EFEF GG.  Of course, poems made entirely of Rhymed Couplets will be very easy for children to mark. (Ex. Robert Louis Stevenson “Whole Duty of Children;” Joyce Kilmer “Trees;” Richard Armour “Rain;” Theodore Rothke “The Bat;” Doris Frankel “Song of the Truck;” T.S. Eliot “Macavity, the Mystery Cat”)
    Sometimes two end words do not rhyme exactly, but are very close—like ‘pain’ and ‘again’ (a-gen, a-gain)—and it’s clear the poet meant them to be a match. This is called slant rhyme, and both words get labeled with the same alphabet letter in the poem’s rhyme scheme.
    Free Verse does not rhyme at all; it doesn’t even keep the same length of lines, or same number of beats per line. (Ex. Walt Whitman “I Hear America Singing,” Carl Sandburg “Fog,” and Elias Lieberman twiddy rentals kill devil hills am an American.”)

    Some other elements of Poetry to review (Laura Bercquist’s anthology The Harp and the Laurel Wreath includes valuable explanations of these & other elements):

    • Alliteration (repetition of the same beginning sound in two or more words)
    • Consonance (repetition of a consonant sound in the beginning, middle, or end of words)
    • Assonance (repetition of a vowel sound in the beginning, middle, and end of words)
    • Onomatopoeia (a word that is an expression of a sound—basically the sound itself spelled into a word; ex. hiss, buzz, pop, aargh)
    • Simile (a comparison between two things which uses the words ‘like’ or ‘as’; ex. ‘My luv is like a red, red rose…’)
    • Metaphor (a comparison between two things which does not include the words ‘like’ or ‘as;’ ex. ‘I am the vine; you are the branches.’)
    • Personification (a figure of speech attributing human characteristics or feeling to non-human things)
    • Symbolism (a figure of speech in which one object represents, and calls to mind, another object/person; for example, a hammer might represent gulf coast bank and trust reviews workman, or a poem might speak of eastwest bank cebu contact number lamb’ instead of naming Jesus Christ specifically.)
    • Imagery (language that conveys what the five senses perceive, ideally to produce a fuller picture in the reader’s mind)
    • Poets often have a favorite source, or field of knowledge, from which they frequently draw imagery, symbols, comparisons, such as nature, or technology/machinery, or religion, or fishing/sailing, or childhood, or sports.
    • Rhythm (basically the regular repetition of stressed and unstressed beats in each line of poem. Four different patterns are iambic, trochaic, anapestic, and dactylic.  Older students could also determine the Meter, named by the number of feet  in the line, such as -4-tetrameter or -5- pentameter; a ‘foot’ would be a group of two or three syllables including one stressed syllable– in basically one of the four rhythmic patterns listed above.)

    • Dead/ Non-existent People talking to the Living (everyone in Edgar Lee Masters Spoon River Anthology; John McCrae “In Flanders’ Fields;” Christina Rossetti “After Death” & “Sleeping at Last”)

    1.9) During the time George has never been born, he finds his familiar hometown transformed into the nightmare world of Pottersville– a kind of dystopian vision.  The restored Bedford Falls appears as a kind of Utopia, or perfect/ desirable place– a loving Bailey family at its core, surrounded by a network of friendly neighbors quick to offer help and support, and financial security restored, and a renewed sense of purpose/ value in George’s work.

    Read & discuss other examples of Utopias & Dystopias in literature (What makes them desirable or undesirable places to live?): Plato’s Republic; Thomas More’s Utopia; Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels; Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The May-Pole of Merry Mount” & “Rappacini’s Daughter;” William Morris’ News From Nowhere; Edward Bellamy’s Looking Backward; Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World; George Orwell’s 1984; Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451; Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time; Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale; Lois Lowry’s The Giver, Gathering Blue, & Messenger; Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Among the Hidden series, as well as Running Out of Time (compare to M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Village); Jeanne du Prau’s City of Ember; Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, & Mockingjay;  stories of King Arthur’s Camelot; and some interpret Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford as female utopias.

    A Utopia could also be a travel account of an unspoiled native or natural place (perhaps Thoreau’s Walden, or Life in the Woods), or a recollection of a childhood place (like a secret garden… a perfect summer… perhaps like Garnet’s Thimble Summer, or the fictional Green Knowe by L.M. Boston).  It could be a Commune or Experimental Community, whether political, social or religious– America’s early Puritan colonies; Brook Farm (in which Nathaniel Hawthorne spent some unhappy time); a monastery or convent of a religious order (“The Rule of St. Benedict;” As Great A Right to be Merry; DVD Into Great Silence, etc.); or 1960s/1970s hippie communes.  It could be a Planned City or an Ideal/Planned Community, such as the plans for Washington, D.C.; one time “worker’s paradise” Vandergrift, PA (see Anne Mosher’s Capital’s Utopia); New Deal homestead community Norvelt, PA, providing a fresh start to displaced mineworkers (locally chronicled by Sondra Wolk Shimizzi); or the Seaside community that provided the setting for The Truman Show movie.  Dystopias could also include prison literature, failed experiments (see Marx’s “Communist Manifest” and the culture it spawned in Soltzenitsyn’s One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich & The Gulag Archipelago); or deliberate “Anti-” literature, writing fictional places/situations to criticize an idea or group (such as anti-technology films like The Net, or anti-genetic experimentation/discrimination films likeGattaca or V for Vendetta; or deliberately anti-Catholic literature like The Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk or Lewis’ The Monk).

    2) ENGLISH/ WRITING Activities:

    2.1) George Bailey never realized the impact his life had on the lives around him. Write a description of (or tribute to) a person who has made a positive difference in your life.
    Or, recalling the disasters and eventual triumph of George’s Smart financial center club section Eve, describe a turning point in your life, a day full of unexpected developments, or an event that could have had a very different outcome—and reflect on how that has changed you.

    2.2) George Bailey’s work helps many citizens to realize their dream of home ownership. Research and write report on someone who made a significant difference by helping with a social problem (such as a saint, inventor, social activist, writer, politician).
    Or, conduct an interview with hilltop hyvee mankato you feel is bettering our community today.

    2.3) Like Pete Bailey, try your hand at writing a Christmas Play for your class/family to perform. It could be a Nativity story, or the story of a Miracle that takes place on Christmas Eve (like It’s a Wonderful Life, Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Rumer Godden’s Holly and Ivy, Susan Wojciechowski’s The Christmas Miracle of Jonathon Toomey, Ethel Pochoki’s A Penny for a Hundred [an American child’s gift to a German POW]; or even Miracle on 34th Street).

    2.4) The Bedford Falls Sentinel proudly announces that local boy, Harry Bailey, is returning home with a Congressional Medal of Honor—and it’s in that newspaper issue that Uncle Billy misplaces $8,000!
    Learn more about the events and/or heroes important to your community during WWII. Visit your local library or historical society to view newspapers dated between 1941 and 1946. Do you find many articles about local homecomings? national/international events? Or purely local happenings?
    Generate a family or classroom newspaper, focused on your own events and interests, and try to include News, Features, Arts/ Reviews, Food, Sports, and possibly Ads and Announcements (Births, Engagements/Weddings, Obituaries).

    2.5) For older students:  View another film or stage-play involving EITHER  Angels, or Time-Distortion/ Time Travel/ Alternate Timelines, then write an essay to compare/contrast, and reflect upon  how & why, Angels or Time are handled in It’s A Wonderful Life and the other film/play.

    For Angels, consider The Nativity Story (2006/7, Keisha Castle-Hughes); Wim Wender’s Wings of Desire (1988) and Faraway, So Close! (1993); Heaven Only Knows (1947 angel-western); Angels in the Outfield (1951, when they help the Pittsburgh Pirates) or the Disney remake (1994, no Pirates); or action flicks Constantine (Keanu Reeves) or Legion (Paul Bettany).  Though it lacks angels, the original Heaven Can Wait (1943) focuses on a man reviewing the merits of his earthly life from the afterlife.

    For Timeplay, consider Washington Irving’s story “Rip van Winkle” or Ray Bradbury’s story “The Fox and The Forest;” H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine (book, multiple films); Thornton Wilder’s Our Town (play or film); Sutton Vane’s Outward Bound (play or film, re: suicide); The Portrait of Jenny (Joseph Cotten; Jennifer Jones); Groundhog Day (Bill Murray); Frequency (Dennis Quaid, Jim Caviezel); The Lake House (Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bulllock); Sliding Doors (Gwenyth Paltrow); possibly Back to the Future or The Terminator movies; Stargate: Continuum or other sci fi (like Original Star Trek’s “Mirror, Mirror” & “The City on the Edge of Forever” episodes); and possible musicals A Christmas Carol or Scrooge; Carousel; or Brigadoon.

    3) MATH Activities:

    3.1) If Zuzu holds a flower with 12 petals on it, while George Bailey hides 3 petals in his pocket, how many petals did Zuzu’s flower have to begin with?
    Express as a fraction the amount of petals Zuzu’s flower has lost.
    What percentage of petals has Zuzu’s flower lost?

    If Zuzu’s flower began with 24 petals, and still lost 3, how many petals would it have now?
    What fraction of petals still remains?
    What percentage of petals still remains?

    3.2) If the year is 1946, and Clarence is 293 years old, in what year was Clarence born?
    If George Bailey was 12 years old in 1919, how old is George when he meets Clarence in 1946?

    3.3) George Bailey desperately needs $8,000. If Mary collects $2,350 around Bedford Falls, and Sam Wainright advances George $25,000 more, by how much does the generosity of George’s friends and neighbors exceed his debt?

    3.4) According to Mr. Potter, George Bailey earns $45 per week, and saves perhaps $10 per week. How much money, then, does George earn in a year? What are the Baileys’ expenses for one year? And how much does George save in a year? What percentage of his income does George save each week?
    Mr. Potter offers to pay George $20,000 per year to be his employee. How much more would George earn in one year if he worked for Potter? Assuming the same expenses as before, how much money would George save in a year of working for Potter?
    Assuming pay & expenses stay the same, how long (years, weeks?) would it take George to save that same amount of money—total money saved in one year under Potter—at his current job?

    3.5) If Zuzu dreams of a flower garden with 15 rows of 15 pink flowers, 10 rows of 12 yellow flowers, and 13 rows of 13 purple flowers, how many flowers total appear in Zuzu’s dream?

    3.6) If the high school swimming pool is 60 feet long and 40 feet wide, what area of flooring is needed to cover it during a dance? If one third of the pool is 5 feet deep, one third is 10 feet deep, and on third of the pool is 15 feet deep, what volume of water does the pool hold?

    3.7) Ernie’s home in Bailey Park is worth $5,000. If the home increases in value by 8% in one year, what will the home be worth then? If it increases in value by 8% every year, what will the home be worth in another 5 years?

    3.8) Besides Clarence, another 50 angels are hoping to get their wings. Bedford Falls has one church bell tower; it rings once at one o’clock, twice at two o’clock, thrice at three o’clock, and so on. How many bells will ring out in a twelve-hour period—and will that be enough for Clarence and his friends to get their wings?

    3.9) One summer day, Mr. Gower buys frozen ice cream treats on a stick at 3 for $.25, and young George sells them all at 2 for $.25. If Gower’s made a profit of $1.00 that day, how many ice cream treats were sold.

    3.10) Play with Time: A fast clock gains one minute per hour, and a slow clock loses two minutes per hour. Initially, both clocks are set to the correct time. Less than 24 hours later, the fast clock registers 9 o’clock at the same moment the slow clock registers 8 o’clock. What is the correct time at that moment?

    4) SOCIAL STUDIES/GEOGRAPHY Activities:

    4.1) Make a map of New York State (in which Van Doren’s Bedford Falls is located), including the cities of Rochester, Buffalo, and New York City (all mentioned in the film).  Add the Hudson and Mohawk rivers, and Lakes Ontario, Erie, and Champlain. Add the state capital, and (any) four other cities to your map. Finally, indicate the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains. (Which of these mountain ranges is older? How could you tell?)

    4.2) Using an atlas or globe, locate the following places George Bailey hoped to visit: New York, NY; Tahiti, the Fiji Islands (Mary picks island music for their homemade honeymoon); Italy, Greece; and the Yukon. What could George have seen/experienced in each place?

    The musical features the hope of travel to Europe.  Map present-day Europe in its entirety.  Make a point of locating & marking the three cities George & Mary picked for their honeymoon: Paris, Budapest, and Rome.  In terms of area, which are Europe’s five largest countries? Which are its five smallest? (Did you remember to map Liechtenstein, Monaco, Andorra, San Marino, and the Holy See/ Vatican state?)   See also Social Studies/Economics 6.3, and answer the questions for five European countries.

    4.3) Create a map of Europe as it was in 1650; create another of the “New World” /Western Hemisphere—countries, colonies, territories, or settlements- in 1650. (Presumably Clarence was born into 1650s Europe or America; which would you guess?) If you wish, map the other continents as they were in 1650 for a complete world view.

    4.4) Create 3 maps of Europe, showing the continent before, during, and after World War II (for example, in 1938, 1943, and 1947).
    (Any quality European History textbook should include this info, but for those who love to learn through maps, Ronald Storey’s Concise Historical Atlas of World War Two [Oxford UP, 2006] provides an overview of the entire conflict through a series of 50 maps, each with a companion page of historical discussion.)

    4.5) Make a map of present-day Afghanistan, and make a special effort to identify places where American marines and soldiers are serving today. Visit anysoldier.com for locations and requested items so you can prepare letters and/or a care package; or send a care package through the USO—still going strong since ‘Mary Bailey’ volunteered with it in the 1940s.

    5) SOCIAL STUDIES/ HISTORY Activities:

    5.1) Research the history of the U.S. Marine Corps, especially their service during World War II.

    5.2) Research World War II, as referenced by this film/musical:

    On the Homefront: Mary helped with the USO; Ma Bailey and Mrs. Hatch with the Red Cross; Mr. Gower sold war bonds; George dealt with tire drives; shortages/rationing; and served as an air raid warden;  Mr. Potter ran the draft board. (An interesting fact:  About 2/3 of  U.S. WWII veterans were drafted, versus only 1/4 of Vietnam vets.)  Other residents planted Victory Gardens, attended church & prayed.

    WWII  Overseas: According to the film, Bedford Falls residents fought in the campaigns in North Africa;
    parachuted into France; and helped take the Remagen Bridge.  Where & when would these be?
    Harry Bailey became a decorated (Navy) flier, saving men on a  transport– would you guess this to have happened in the Pacific?  What were some of the major events of the War in the Pacific?

    Some sources we’ve used, Gr 4/5- up:  Penny Colman, Rosie the Riveter: Woman Working on the Home Front in World War II; Scholastic Encyclopedia of the United States at War; DK Eyewitness World War II; Usborne World War Stories & True Stories of D-Day; Ronald Storey, A Concise Historical Atlas of World War II; Michael Lyons, World War II: A Short History; the classic Victory at Sea and History Channel’s Battle 360 Pacific DVD sets; World War II and Military History magazines; Time-Life Commemorative magazines on D-Day & America’s Victory; Gordon L.

    Some websites to check:   The National Archives: 1937-1945;   BBC Primary History: Children of World War 2;   neoK12: World War II;   and some HD videos available at History.com

    Historical Cookbooks: Joanne Lamb Hayes’ Grandma’s Wartime Kitchen (with Jean Anderson) & Grandma’s Wartime Baking Book; Jill Norman’s Eating for Victory; Marguerite Patten’s Victory Cookbook (UK)

    5.3) Mr. Potter calls George Bailey a “nursemaid to a bunch of garlic-eaters.”  Research Irish Immigration to America as background for the Baileys.
    Then research Italian Immigration– the probable story of the Martinis.  Besides “garlic-eaters,” what other derogatory terms were applied to Italian-Americans?
    Consider a visit to the Immigrant Museum in Johnstown, PA; also the Johnstown Flood Museum & Incline.

    5.4) We see George dressed in a football jersey, and know that Harry played.  Research the history of Football –especially the local Latrobe, PA connection.

    5.5) Building Big:  Modern Cities.  Pick a major metropolis (such as New York, Paris, Budapest, or Rome), and research what it was like in four different decades, or if possible, four different centuries.

    6) SOCIAL STUDIES/ ECONOMICS Activities:

    6.1) Explore the American Dream of home-ownership– long a symbol of American financial & familial success and stability. Research & compare statistics on this in 1946 (post-war) and the present-day; also explore changing floorplans & home prices over the past century.
    Finally, consider the pros & cons of owning vs. renting today. (Financial guru Suzie Orman, for example, may be questioning the value of home-ownership for the current generation of Americans.)

    6.2) Learn about types of depository institutions: what’s the difference between a bank, a credit union, and a savings & loan (or building & loan)?  What types of accounts, or savings options, are available?  In general, what are the types of loans people take on– what are the usual reasons for borrowing? Which loans tend to carry the highest interest rates (and what do fixed & variable rates mean) ? (Could there be other costs, besides interest, associated with borrowing?)

    6.3) Potter to George Bailey: “Why, you’re worth more dead than alive.”  Research the Avg. Net Worth/ Buying Power of a citizen in 10 different countries countries, including the USA– info often included in an atlas.  Note also the Gross Domestic Product (GDP)s of these countries.  Note also their population density.  Do you notice any relationship or pattern between these figures; why or why not?

    6.4) George has a $15,000 life insurance policy, with $500 equity.  Learn some Life insurance basics: what are the differences between term life policies, and whole life?  How do people determine how much coverage they need? What would be your best guess regarding what George’s policy was meant to do (for example, pay off George & Mary’s home mortgage; provide Mary & the kids with living expenses for X amount of time; cover funeral expenses; etc.)?

    6.5) Inflation.  (If $5000 gets Ernie a decent house in the 1940s, why not today?  Explain how prices can be so different today!)

    6.6) The Baileys find it disturbing that Henry Potter owns many (all?) rental properties in Bedford Falls– and also takes control of the bank from which people would need to borrow money in order to purchase a home. Find the definition of a “monopoly.”  Does this fit Potter’s operation? Are there other terms that would better describe Potter’s business practices?

    6.7) Research Bank disasters/failures, esp. in 1929 (beginning the Great Depression)– as featured in the musical– and on contemporary Wall Street.

    7) SCIENCE Activities:

    Possible Research topics:

    7.1) Safety on Ice. Safety during Winter play (frostbite, hypothermia).
    7.2) Experiment to determine the best melting agents for ice.
    7.3) Bells. Sound.

    7.4) Young George loses hearing in one ear.  Learn more about the structure & function of the ear. What causes Hearing Loss or Deafness? What treatments are available– or how do people adapt to living without hearing? (Learn how to sign a few words, from American Sign Language.)

    7.5) George’s father suffers a stroke.  Research Strokes– what is a stroke; what nyle americas next top model the risk factors/ suggestions for prevention?
    7.6)  Research Diphtheria– cause, symptoms/risks, treatment.  What sort of treatment was Mr. Gower likely preparing when he made his mistake with the baby’s prescription?

    7.7) Review ways to keep people and/or the environment safe from Poisoning— ex. Pest Control; Household Cleaning Products; Makeup, Food, OTC & Rx Medicines; Paint; Waste or Chemical Disposal; Forensic science/ Criminal use of poisons.
    7.8) Learn more about the Development of Medicines– and the development of Poisons, since the two are often related (or have been mistaken for each other, in history).  Toxic! Killer Cures and Other Poisonings by Susie Hodge makes this point; Hodge also recommends John Elmsley’s The Elements of Murder: A History of Poison, Peter Macinnis’ Poisons, R.M. Youngson’s Scientific Blunders, and Bee Wilson’s Swindled: The Dark History of Food Fraud, from Poisoned Candy to Counterfeit Coffee.  For a stronger medical focus, consider Fran Balkwill and Mic Rolph’s Microbes, Bugs, and Wonder-Drugs: Potions to Penicillin, Aspirin to Addiction.  Perhaps pick a specific pharmacy school or  pharmaceutical company to research.

    7.9) Since Clarence was once a clockmaker, research Clocks/ History of Timekeeping.

    Here are some topic ideas (courtesy of Ken Sobol’s The Clock Museum, 1967):  Ancient times– obelisks, sun dials, water clocks,  King Alfred’s candle clock, Chinese fire clocks, Tibetan sun-sticks, stone calendars (ex. Stonehenge); Medieval times– waterwheel clocks with escapement, mechanical clocks with spindle, tower clocks (some with moving figures), sandglasses; 1500s– pocket sundials, jewelled pocket-watches, Peter Heinlein, “Nuremburg eggs,” birdcage or lantern clocks, first clockmakers’ guild; “Great Age of Clock-Making: 1500-1800”– spring clocks, pendulum clocks, automata, James Cox (b. England, c.1715), Prince Potemkin of Russia’s “Peacock clock;” Sailors’ timepieces, 1700s– chronometers, gimbals; American clocks, 1700s– grandfather clocks, mass production, “pillar-and-scroll” clocks, also “banjo,” “acorn,” “minstrel,” “wag-on-the-wall;”  World War I– wristwatches; Scientific clocks– quartz-crystal, atomic clocks.

    Is there a future for clock-making– alarm clocks, wristwatches, anything– in the age of cell phones, i-pods, etc.?

    7.10) Snow/Snowflakes:  The snow stops falling when George ceases to exist, and returns when he gets his life back– so learn more about them. Young readers will enjoy Jacqueline Briggs Martin’s informational picture book Snowflake Bentley, about a pioneer in the study of snowflakes; older students might enjoy Wilson A. Bentley’s Snow Crystals itself.  Where and why might people study snow today?  Consider meteorology/ weather prediction.  What else can be studied in snowbound or arctic climates?  Research explorers of/ expeditions to the North and South Poles. (At least one IMAX film exists on Shackleton’s amazing survival story.)  What projects are undertaken in Antarctica today?  What goes on in the Arctic circle (ex. William F. Althoff, Drift Stations: Arctic Outposts of Superpower Science)?

    7.11) Since George offers to lasso the moon, research the Moon– its size & features, its exploration.

    7.12) Since George recommends coconut to Mary, research the Coconut.  Is the devil and daniel webster math worksheet answers a fruit, vegetable, or nut?  Was it really used in/as an IV  by WWII medics in the Pacific?

    7.13) Glass– what it is, how it’s made (from the past to the present). Consider field-tripping to one of Pittsburgh’s glass-related sites.
    7.14) Research Plastics, since they provide Sam Wainwright with a fortune (while George misses out on the opportunity).

    7.15) Mr. Potter is compared to one, so research Spiders.  How do arachnids differ from insects? All spiders have spinnerets, but not all of them are orb-spinners who wait on their webs for prey (like Potter).  How do the other spiders behave?  How do these spiders differ physically from orb-spinners?  Finally, Read a spider-related tale from Folklore:  Arachne from Greek Mythology; the Spider-Woman from Native-American lore; or Anansi from Ashanti tales, Ghana.

    7.16) In honor or Zuzu’s flower, learn about the Anatomy of a Flower.  (Consider a bulb dissection kit for a hands-on approach.)  Experiment to see if Fragrance or Color is more attractive to bees and/or butterflies.

    7.17) Study the Anatomy of a Tree.  In the film, a distraught George damages a neighbor’s tree with his car– but later ends up happily beside his own family Christmas tree.

    7.18) George dreams of Building Big:  Research Bridges and Skyscrapers.
    7.19) Airplanes/ Forces of Flight.

    7.20) Physics of “the Impossible”: Time Travel, & Alternate Realities/ Timelines.  Surprisingly, physicist Michio Kaku, author of Physics of the Impossible, tells us that there are few  ‘impossibilities’ which truly violate the laws of physics– so most are considered impossible  because we don’t yet have the technology figured out.

    7.21) Learn about the effects of Alcohol Consumption on the human body (such as Uncle Billy!).  What constitutes drunkenness, and alcoholism?

    8) ART/ ARCHITECTURE Activities:

    George Bailey rescuing his brother from the ice, in this coloring page depicting a scene from It's a Wonderful Life.

    8.1) Little ones will enjoy coloring this picture of George Bailey rescuing his brother from the ice.

    8.2) Cut out paper snowflakes.  Some editions of Jacqueline Briggs Martin’s informational picture book Snowflake Bentley (recounting Wilson A. Bentley’s lifelong effort to photograph and study snowflakes) come with a booklet of snowflake patterns; but other such pattern books exist (ex. Peggy Edwards Make Your Own Snowflakes, or Dover Coloring Books Snowflakes). (Creativity for Kids also produces a kit for assembling snowflakes out of pearl-like beads.)

    Learn more about other paper-cut art, perhaps from the Amish/Pennsylvania Deutch, or Polish falk art traditions, or the amazing book illustrations of David Wisniewski (Elfwyn’s Saga; Golem; and many others).

    8.3) Make a snowglobe.  Again, a pre-packaged kit is available with plastic globe base & top, clay for making a figure(s) for inside, water and glitter.  We’ve made our own using a carefully-cleaned large-sized glass baby food jar (though mustard, olive, cherry, any jar would do) with baked clay figures (like a snowman) or plastic trinkets (from gumball machines, dollar stores, Michaels) superglued inside the lid –and, yes, filled with silver glitter and water.

    8.4) In honor of Zuzu’s beloved posy, practice drawing flowers– individually, or grouped as a Still Life. Visit the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg for ideas and suggestions, or use one of the many How-to-Draw books (ex. Draw 100 Flowers) at your local bookstore.

    8.5) Because Bedford Falls is so important to this story, create your own Street Scene/ Town Storefronts (paper).  For young children, take a legal-sized sheet of paper and fold it accordian-style to create five rectangular sections. Lay the paper flat and help the children use the folds as guidelines for the sides of their buildings. Let the children draw five storefronts– or, four buildings, making one of the buildings two folds wide (this works well for adding a church or school to the scene).

    Another Project Idea:  Make a Collage of a Town.  Cut the shapes of different town buildings– houses, stores, church with steeple– with different heights & roof lines– out of different colored construction paper. (Parents/ teachers can help by cutting out template buildings on cardstock, in advance, if necessary.)  Then help the child try out different arrangements of  the cutout building silhouettes on legal or oversized paper.  When satisfied, glue the buildings down.

    8.6) For a more advanced project, make 3-D/ Mixed Media House-front or Storefront.

    Budding architects who (like George Bailey) want to build great things will enjoy crafting a 3D paint-by-numbers castle. Amazon sells this kit for about $8.

    You may have encountered wooden 3-D paint by numbers kits, which come with two or three pre-cut scenery pieces to fit into a shallow (1-1/2” deep) box– allowing for foreground and background(s). (Try Amazon or Rainbow Resource Co.)

    If you are in southwestern Pennsylvania, check out the Westmoreland Museum in Greensburg, which currently has two Box Constructions on display, in “The Tides of Provincetown” [Dec. 2011]– Elspeth Halvorsen’s “The World is Watching, 2001” (inspired by the Twin Towers on 9/11), and Varujan Boghosian’s “Untitled, 1973” (a WWII Navy vet-turned-artist, whose reuse of discarded material indicates the persistence of past experiences).

    You can create a ‘house’ or ‘store’ in a box frame yourself– by arranging and fnb com lb online wood blocks/rectangles/cylinders/dowels, or wooden craft figures (from a store like Michaels), inside a shallow wooden box (such as an unstained wood box from Michaels; a drawer from a jewelry/trinket box; or one of those wooden display boxes meant to hang on a wall and display glass figure, thimbles, etc– but with the shelves or  compartments removed); then paint details onto your house or store.

    Or, try cardboard as an inexpensive alternative: Cut a rectangle out of one side of a cereal box to make a box frame; tape or glue toilet paper rolls, and small boxes from soap, toothpaste, candy, etc., inside in the shape of a building.  Cover the boxes with construction paper and poster lifemart tickets at work promo code to finish your house or store.

    In an online biography, mixed media artist George R. Wazenegger writes "I create wood collage of charming and quaint architectural structures. I do this because of the nostalgia and love of these places which are slow(ly) disappearing" http://www.yessy.com/waz/bio.html

    It’s also possible to build up a house-front or storefront without the wooden box frame.  The Southern Alleghenies Museum in Ligonier, PA  just displayed multiple examples by artist George R. Wazenegger.  Using a thin board (such as balsa) as a base (most were 10-15 inches long, 8-12 inches high– many irregular), glue small roughly rectangular or square pieces/scraps/ sticks of wood onto the wood-base, and onto each other, to build up the shape of a cottage or storefront.  Other small wood scraps, or strips of cork or hard sponge, can be glued to form a bit of ground beneath the cottage.  Cork cut in the shape of foliage (sort of a flattened cloud shape) can be glued beside cottage or store to form a bush or a treetop (with a twig for the trunk); the trunk could also be painted on, & the cork foliage painted to represent leaves in any season.  After gluing the basic shapes, paint the housefront or storefront, as well as its background, to add in any details you wish.

    8.7) Learn more about Norman Rockwell, the illustrator who became famous for his iconic scenes of American life (first with Boy’s Life magazine, then the Saturday Evening Post).  See especially his Christmas scenes, and those related to WWII:  his depictions of the Four Freedoms from FDR’s speech—Freedom of Speech; of Religion; from Want; from Fear/Tyranny– and to see how he “Welcome[d] the Hero”, ‘”The Homecoming” (May 1945) and “Homecoming Marine” (Oct. 1945).

    In Getting to Know the World’s Greatest Artists: Norman Rockwell, Mike Venezia emphasizes how Rockwell knew how to tell a story without words.  Draw/color a memorable scene from your own family or community life.  Or, recreate one of Rockwell’s famous scenes using contemporary characters, fashions, objects.  How might you depict the Four Freedoms for today’s (also war-time) generation?

    8.8) In affectionate remembrance of the Old Granville place (which Mary lovingly restores), research Victorian home architecture.  Consider how  it differs from at least one other home/building style– neo-Classical, Colonial, Prairie-style or Craftsman, Southwestern, or Contemporary designs.  What are some hallmarks that help you identify a Victorian home, inside or out?

    8.9) Research an artist who works/ed with glass, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany or Dale Chihuly.  Perhaps also research Pittsburgh’s glass history– glass as factory product, and as art; or learn more about glass artists in your local community (ex. monks at St. Vincent Archabbey, Latrobe, PA).

    8.10) Research the way Angels have been depicted in famous paintings/works of art over the centuries: Did you find Mighty Warriors or Cherubs?  Add your own interpretation: draw, paint, or sculpt an Angel.

    9) MUSIC Activities:

    9.1) Research, listen to and learn more about one of the songs in the movie: “Buffalo Gals,” “My Wild Irish Rose,” “O Sole Mio,” “I Love You Truly,” “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing,” “Auld Lang Syne,” or music associated with the Charleston (such as “Runnin Wild” and “Yes, Sir, That’s My Baby”)– and just where DID this Charleston dance originate (?!).

    9.2) Research, listen to and learn more about one of the categories of music below:
    Irish folk music and/or ballads (in honor of the Baileys)
    Italian folk music and/or ballads (in honor of the Martinis); besides “O Sole Mio,” which have become familiar to the general public, or associated with Italian-Americans? (“Volare,” “Santa Lucia,” “Non Dimenticar,” “That’s Amore” ?)
    Island music, from Hawaii or Polynesia (in honor of George and Mary’s manufactured honeymoon)
    Christmas carols (especially with angels?)
    World War II-era music, including big bands and/or songbirds Vera Lynne, Dinah Shore, the Andrews Sisters (We love the CD-collection Songs That Won the War.)  You can also read analyses of the music, like John Bush Jones’ Songs That Fought the War: Popular Music and the Home Front, 1939-1945.
    Bell music (in honor of angels getting their wings!). Many colleges and churches have a handbell choir; also, check out the handbell group at the Ligonier Highland Games (in September), and “Cast In Bronze” plays the Carillon (a massive Medieval bell instrument) at the Pittsburgh Renaissance Faire and on CD & DVD.

    9.3) RELATED MUSICALS:

    • Christmas-related:A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge (1970); Irving Berlin’s White Christmas; Babes in Toyland (two versions exist: Laurel & Hardy’s 1934, & Disney’s 1961); Madeline’s Christmas; Narnia (musical of The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe); Meet Me in St. Louis

    The Devil and Daniel Webster

    1936 short story by Stephen Vincent Benét

    This article is about the short story. For other uses, see The Devil and Daniel Webster (disambiguation).

    "The Devil and Daniel Webster" (1936) is a short story by American writer Stephen Vincent Benét. He tells of a New Hampshire farmer who sells his soul to the devil and is later defended by Daniel Webster, a fictional version of the noted 19th-century American statesman, lawyer and orator. The narrative refers to factual events in the lives of Webster and his family.

    The story appeared in The Saturday Evening Post (October 24, 1936) and was published in book form by Farrar & Rinehart the following year. The story won the O. Henry Award. The author also adapted it in 1938 as a folk opera, with music by Douglas Stuart Moore, a fellow Yale University alumnus.

    Plot summary[edit]

    Webster argues while the devilwhispers in the judge's ear.

    Farmer Jabez Stone, from the small town of Cross Corners, New Hampshire, is plagued with unending bad luck. He finally says, "it's enough to make a man want to sell his soul to the devil!" The next day he is visited by a stranger, identified as "Mr. Scratch", who offers to give him seven years of prosperity for his soul. Stone agrees.

    Mr. Scratch comes for Stone's soul at the appointed time, and Stone bargains for more years. After that Scratch refuses an extension. Stone hires noted lawyer and orator Daniel Webster to get him out of the deal.

    At midnight of the appointed date, Mr. Scratch and Webster begin their legal argument. It goes poorly for Webster, since Stone's signature and the contract are clear, and Mr. Scratch will not compromise.

    Webster says, "Mr. Stone is an American citizen, and no American citizen may be forced into the service of a foreign prince. We fought England for that in '12 and we'll fight all hell for it again!" To this Mr. Scratch insists on his own citizenship, citing his presence at the worst events in the history of the U.S., concluding, "though I don't like to boast of it, my name is older in this country than yours."

    Webster demands a trial as the right of every American. Mr. Scratch agrees after Webster says that he can select the judge and jury, "so long as it is an American judge and an American jury." A jury of the damned enters, "with the fires of hell still upon them." They had all done evil, and had all played a part in the formation of the United States:

    After five other unnamed jurors enter (Benedict Arnold being out "on other business"), the judge enters last. It is John Hathorne, who presided at the Salem witch trials.

    The trial is rigged against Webster. He is outraged but calms himself, thinking "for it was him they'd come for, not only Jabez Stone."

    Webster starts to orate on simple and good things – "the freshness of a fine morning.the taste of food when you're hungry.the new day that's every day when you're a child" – mail bk com how "without freedom, they sickened." He speaks passionately of how wonderful it is to be human and to be an American. He admits the wrongs done in the course of American history but points out that something new and good had grown from them and that "everybody had played a part in it, even the traitors." Humankind "got tricked and trapped and bamboozled, but it was a great journey," something "no demon that was ever foaled" could ever understand.

    The jury announces its verdict: "We find for the defendant, Jabez Stone." They admit, "Perhaps 'tis not strictly in accordance with the evidence,[2] but even the damned may salute the eloquence of Mr. Webster." The judge and jury disappear with the break of dawn. Mr. Scratch congratulates Webster, and the contract is torn up. The devil has overreached himself, agreeing to a jury trial out of pride in his unbreakable contract. But by doing so, he has put his contract within the reach of the Common Law used in America, under which a jury can enter whatever verdict it likes, regardless of the law. Webster's eloquence in swaying this supposedly unswayable jury is remarkable, but would have gone to no effect without the devil's pride-induced mistake in giving Webster a chance.

    Webster then grabs the stranger and twists his arm behind his back, "for he knew that once you bested anybody like Mr. Scratch in fair fight, his power on you was gone." Webster makes him agree "never to bother Jabez Stone nor his heirs or assigns nor any other New Hampshire man till doomsday!"

    Mr. Scratch offers to tell Webster's fortune in his palm. He foretells (actual) events in Webster's future, including his failure to become President (an actual ambition of his), the death of Webster's sons (which happened in the American Civil War) and the backlash of his last speech, warning "Some will call you Ichabod" (as in John Greenleaf Whittier's poem in reaction to Webster's controversial Seventh of March speech supporting the Compromise of 1850 that incorporated the Fugitive Slave Act, with many in the North calling Webster a traitor).

    Webster asks only if the Union will prevail. Scratch admits that the United States will remain united after the war. Webster then laughs, ". and with that he drew back his foot for a kick that would have stunned a horse. It was only the tip of his shoe that caught the stranger, but he went flying closest moneypass atm to me of the door with his collecting box under his arm . And he hasn't been seen in the state of New Hampshire from that day to this. I'm not talking about Massachusetts or Vermont."

    Major themes[edit]

    Patriotism[edit]

    Patriotism is a main theme in the story: Webster claims that the Devil cannot take the soul because he cannot claim American citizenship. "And who with better right?" the devil replies, going on to list several wrongs done in the U.S., thereby demonstrating his presence in the U.S. The devil says "I am merely an honest American like yourself — and of the best descent — for, to tell the truth, Mr. Webster, though I don't like to boast of it, my name is older in this country than yours."

    Webster insists on a jury trial as an American right, with Americans for the jury and an American judge. The devil then provides the worst from Webster's perspective (and certainly, they are in Hell) examples of Americans for the judge and jury. In Daniel's speech "He was talking about the things that make a country a country, and a man a man" rather than legal points of the case. For Webster, freedom and independence defines manhood: "Yes, even in hell, if a man was a man, you'd know it."

    This theme of American patriotism, freedom and independence is the explanation for Webster's victory: the jury is damned to hell, but they are American and therefore so independent that they can resist the devil.[citation needed] However, in reality many of the jury would not have classed themselves as Americans, as Governor Dale, Morton, Hathorne, and Blackbeard were English, and King Phillip was a Wampanoag. Butler and Girty would have called themselves Americans – and indeed were Americans – but they were Loyalists, and Webster might not have intended any best business start up bank account U.S. citizens. Classifying the jurors as "Americans" involves a wider definition, including all who had a part in its history – even those who lived and died as English subjects before 1775, the Loyalists who actively opposed the creation of the U.S., and those Indians (like King Philip) who interacted with the new civilization. Scratch underlines this definition by saying of the jury "Americans all".

    Slavery[edit]

    In his speech, Webster denounces slavery. Earlier, he states flatly "A man is not a piece of property." Later, there is this description "And when he talked of those enslaved, and the sorrows of slavery, his voice got like a big bell." Benét acknowledges the evil by having the devil say: "When the first wrong was done to the first Indian, I was there. When the first slaver put out for the Congo, I stood on her deck." As for Webster, "He admitted all the wrong that had ever been done. But he showed how, out of the wrong and the right, the suffering and the starvations, something new had come. And everybody had played a part in it, even the traitors."

    The real Daniel Webster was willing to compromise on slavery in favor of keeping the Union together, disappointing some radical abolitionists, but he held that only the preservation of the Union could keep anti-slavery forces active in the slave areas. This desire to end the institution was a mainspring of his support for the Union.

    Treatment of aboriginal Americans[edit]

    The story may be seen as ambivalent on the treatment of the aboriginal Americans. Webster states "If two New Hampshiremen aren't a match for the devil, we might as well give the country back to the Indians." However, the stranger/Satan remarks that "When the first wrong was done to the first Indian, I was there", which implies the author's acknowledgement that aboriginal Americans were sometimes wronged. "King Philip, wild and proud as he had been in life, with the great gash in his head that gave him his death wound" is noted as a notorious villain of American history (the historical King Philip (Metacomet), died from a gunshot to the heart, not a gash to the head).

    Yet later on, Daniel Webster's appeal to the jury on "what it means to be American" specifically includes King Philip among "the Americans". This is an anachronism, as the historical Daniel Webster would have been unlikely to express such an opinion. The narrator also expresses sympathy for King Philip when he tells us that one juror "heard the cry of his lost nation" in Webster's eloquent appeal.

    These ambiguities probably reflect ambivalent perceptions of this aspect of American history in the 20th century at the time of writing, rather than at the time when the story is supposed to take place.[citation mankato free press death notices devil[edit]

    The devil is portrayed as polite and refined. When the devil arrives he is described as "a soft-spoken, dark-dressed stranger," who "drove up in a handsome buggy." The names Benét gives the devil—Mr. Scratch or the stranger—were both used around New England and other parts of the pre-Civil War United States: "Perhaps Scratch will do for the evening. I'm often called that in these regions." These terms are taken primarily from "The Devil and Tom Walker" (1824) by Washington Irving, who usually calls the devil Old Scratch.

    Adaptations[edit]

    Screen[edit]

    Two film adaptations have been made:

    An Academy Award-winning 1941 film first released under the title All That Money Can Buy, starring Edward Arnold as Daniel, Walter Huston as Mr. Scratch, James Craig as Jabez Stone, and Simone Simon as Belle.

    Shortcut to Happiness, is a modernized version set in the publishing world, starring Anthony Hopkins as a publisher named Daniel Webster, Alec Baldwin as a best-selling but terrible author named Jabez Stone, and Jennifer Love Hewitt as a female version of the devil. This most recent version was made in 2001, but never had a wide theatrical release.

    An animated television film loosely based on the story, The Devil and Daniel Mouse, was released in 1978.

    Phil Reisman, Jr. adapted the story for a live television performance of "The Devil and Daniel Webster" on Breck Sunday Showcase (NBC, Feb 14, 1960, 60 min), starring Edward G. Robinson (Daniel Webster), David Wayne (Mr. Scratch), and Tim O'Connor (Jabez Stone). A color videorecording of the production aired two years later on Breck Golden Showcase (CBS, Apr 30, 1962).[3]

    Radio[edit]

    Each of these adaptations used the original story title, unless otherwise indicated:

    Charles R. Jackson's adaptation aired on Columbia Workshop (CBS, Aug. 6, 1938, 30 min), with music by Bernard Herrmann.

    Edward Arnold, Walter Huston, and James Craig reprised their 1941 film roles in the "All That Money Can Buy" episode of Cavalcade of America (NBC Red Network, Oct. 20, 1941, 30 min). Howard Teichmann and Robert L. Richards abridged and adapted the screenplay.

    Jean Holloway's adaptation aired on Hallmark Playhouse (CBS, June 10, 1948, 30 min); cast: John McIntire (Daniel Webster), Alan Reed (Mr. Scratch), Frank Goss (Jabez Stone).

    Edward Arnold again played Daniel Webster for The Prudential Family Hour of Stars (CBS, Sept. 18, 1949, 30 min).

    Walter Huston again reprised his 1941 film role in the "All That Money Can Buy" episode of Theatre Guild on the Air (NBC, April 30, 1950, 60 min); Cornel Wilde and Martha Scott co-starred.

    Stage[edit]

    Benét adapted his story as a play, The Devil and Daniel Webster: A Play in One Act (New York: Dramatists Play Service, 1938), and also as a folk opera, The Devil and Daniel Webster: An Opera in One Act (New York: Farrar & Rinehart, 1939), music by Douglas Moore (Moore and Benét had earlier collaborated on an operetta, The Headless Horseman [1937], based on Washington Irving's short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" [1820]).

    Archibald MacLeish, a friend and associate of Benét's in the 1930s and until his death in 1943, also adapted the story as a play: Scratch (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1971). On Broadway very briefly, Scratch starred Will Geer in the title role and Patrick Magee as Webster. Originally conceived as a musical collaboration with Bob Dylan, the collaboration fell apart due to creative differences between Dylan and MacLeish. The show opened at Broadway's St. James Theater on May 6, 1971, and closed two days later.[4]

    In popular culture[edit]

    • In Treehouse of Horror IV of The Simpsons in "The Devil and Homer Simpson", Homer Simpson announces he would sell his soul for a doughnut, and the devil, who resembles Ned Flanders, appears to make a deal with Homer. Homer tries to outsmart the devil by not finishing the doughnut, but eventually eats it and is sent to Hell; there he is "tormented" by being forced to eat thousands of doughnuts, an ironic punishment that backfires when he gleefully eats them without any sign of pain. A trial is held between Homer and the devil to determine the rightful owner of Homer's soul. Marge Simpson saves Homer's soul in a dramatic twist, when she reveals that Homer gave her ownership of his soul, meaning that it was not in his possession when the deal was made.[5][6]
    • In an episode of the television show The Monkees, this story was also presented in "The Devil and Peter Tork", wherein Peter finds a beautiful harp in a pawn shop run by Mr. Zero and says that he would give anything for it. Mr. Zero then has Peter sign a contract which condemns him by promising his soul to Mr. Zero. The boys become an overnight success after adding the harp to their act. They learn what has happened when Mr. Zero comes to collect Peter's soul and Mike argues that they will take it to court to fight the contract. The jury consists of 12 condemned men from Devil's Island and Judge Roy Bean, the hanging judge, presides over the trial. After Atilla the Hun, Billy the Kid, and Blackbeard all testify to what Mr. Zero has done for their careers, Mike calls Mr. Zero to the stand and tells him that he did not give Peter the ability to play the harp and that it was within Peter the whole time due to his love for the harp. He then convinces Peter to prove it to Mr. Zero and everyone in the courtroom by playing the harp after Mr. Zero takes away the power. Peter then plays a beautiful rendition of the Monkees' song "I Wanna Be Free", he is found not guilty and the case is dismissed. Peter is set free and Mr. Zero snaps his fingers and returns to Hell.
    • Nelvana created an animated television special called The Devil and Daniel Mouse based on the story. In the program, Daniel Mouse is a musician whose partner, Jan, sells her soul to the devil in exchange for fame.
    • Two Chick Publications tracts, The Contract![7] and It's A Deal,[8] borrow heavily from the story. The Contract! follows the original plot more closely (telling of a bankrupt farmer facing eviction), while It's a Deal is a Chick tract rewritten for the African-American community and features a young basketball player.
    • In his court order rejecting plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis in the lawsuit United States ex rel. Gerald Mayo v. Satan and His Staff, 54 F.R.D. 282 (1971), Judge Gerald J. Weber cited this story as the sole, though "unofficial", precedent touching on the jurisdiction of United States courts over Satan.
    • In the 1995 Tiny Toon Adventures TV special, Night Ghoulery, this story is parodied unify financial credit union irvine ca the segment "The Devil and Daniel Webfoot".
    • In the Supernatural episode "Captives", it is revealed that Crowley, the de facto king of Hell, rented several storage units under the alias "D. Webster" as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the short story.[9]
    • In Tripping the Rift, Season 1 Episode 5, the story is parodied under the title of "The Devil and a Guy Named Webster". When the lead character accidentally sells his soul to the devil, the crew then travel back in time to find Webster, but dial the wrong time zone and get a child actor who played a character called Webster.[10]
    • In Chilling The devil and daniel webster math worksheet answers of Sabrina, Season 1 Episode 3, a lawyer named Daniel Webster represents Sabrina in a trial plot loosely resembling the short story.[11]

    1. ^Anderson, Charles R. Puzzles and Essays from"The Exchange" - Trick Reference Questions, p. 122: "In 'The Devil and Daniel Webster' by Stephen Vincent Benét, there is a character named the Reverend John Smeet. Was this a real person? Note: In a 1960 letter to the New York Times Book Review, Mrs. Stephen Vincent Benét said that Smeet was entirely imaginary.
    2. ^A point sometimes not known or appreciated by the reader is that, by agreeing to a jury trial under common law, Mr. Scratch has also agreed to be bound by the rule that a jury is the exclusive judge of both the facts and the law; as such, even in the face of overwhelming evidence favoring the plaintiff (such as the contract Mr. Scratch had with Stone) the jury could find for the defendant, acting as a sort of local law-making body with the power to suspend the law in this case (this can only be done for acquittals; convictions must be done strictly according to the law and the evidence). Webster, as an experienced lawyer, would know that; presumably Mr. Scratch would have known that as well, but was confident that his hand-picked jury would do his bidding.

    'The Devil and Tom Walker' Study Guide

    Washington Irving, one of early America's greatest storytellers, was the author of such beloved works as "Rip Van Winkle" (1819) and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820). Another of his short stories, "The Devil and Tom Walker," is not as well known, but it is definitely worth seeking out. "The Devil and Tom Walker" was first published in 1824 among a collection of short stories called "Tales of a Traveller," which Irving wrote under pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon. The story appropriately appeared in a section called "Money-Diggers," as the tale chronicles the selfish choices of an exceptionally stingy and greedy man.

    Historical Context

    Irving's piece is a relatively early entry into the many literary works considered Faustian tales—stories depicting greed, a thirst for instant gratification, and, ultimately, a deal with the devil as the means to such selfish ends. The original legend of Faust dates to 16th-century Germany; Christopher Marlowe then dramatized (and popularized) it in take me to the nearest ross play "The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus," which was first performed sometime around 1588. Faustian tales have been a hallmark of Western culture ever since, inspiring the major themes of plays, poems, operas, classical music, and even film and television productions.

    Given its dark subject matter, it is unsurprising that "The Devil and Tom Walker" sparked a fair amount of controversy, particularly among the religious population. Still, many consider it an exemplary piece of narrative writing and one of Irving's finest stories. In fact, Irving's piece triggered a rebirth of sorts for the Faustian tale. It is widely reported to have inspired Stephen Vincent Benet's "The Devil and Daniel Webster," which appeared in The Saturday Evening Postin 1936—more than a century after Irving's story came out.

    Plot Summary

    The story opens with the tale of how Captain Kidd, a pirate, buried some treasure in a swamp just outside Boston. It then jumps to the year 1727, when New Englander Tom Walker happened to find himself walking through this swamp. Walker, explains the narrator, was just the kind of man to jump at the prospect of a buried treasure, as he, along with his wife, was selfish to the point of destruction.

    While walking through the swamp, Walker comes upon the devil, a great "black" man carrying an ax, whom Irving calls Old Scratch. The devil in disguise tells Walker about the treasure, saying that he controls it but will give it to Tom for a price. Walker agrees readily, without really considering what he is expected to pay in return—his soul. The rest of the tale follows the twists and turns one might expect as a result of greed-driven decisions and deal-making with the devil.

    Main Characters

    Tom Walker

    Tom Walker is the protagonist of the story. He is described as "a meager miserly fellow" and is probably Irving's least likable character. However, despite his many unsavory characteristics, he is memorable. Walker is often compared to Faust/Faustus, the protagonist of the legend that has inspired countless works throughout literary history, including Marlowe, Goethe, and more.

    Walker's wife

    Walker's wife is such a minor character that her name is never given, but she can be likened to her husband in her miserly nature and volatile temper. Irving describes: "Tom's wife was a tall termagant, fierce of temper, loud of tongue, and strong of arm. Her voice was often heard in wordy warfare with her husband, and his face sometimes showed signs that their conflicts were not confined to words."

    Old Scratch

    Old Scratch is another name for the devil. Irving describes: "It is true, he was dressed in a rude, half Indian garb, and had a red belt or sash swathed round his body, but his face was neither black nor copper color, but swarthy and dingy and begrimed with soot, as if he had been accustomed to toil among fires and forges."

    The actions of Old Scratch are similar to other Faustian tales in that he is the tempter who offers the protagonist riches or other gains in exchange for their soul.

    Major Events and Setting

    "The Devil and Tom Walker" may be a short story, but quite a bit takes place in its few pages. The events—and the locations in which they take place—really drive the overarching theme of the story: avarice and its consequences. The events of the story can be divided into two locations:

    Old Indian Fort

    • Tom Walker takes a shortcut through tangled, dark, and dingy swamplands, which are so dark and uninviting that they represent hell in the story. Tom meets the devil, Old Scratch, at an abandoned Indian fort hidden away in the swamplands.
    • Old Scratch offers Tom riches hidden by Captain Kidd in exchange for "certain conditions." The conditions are, of course, that Walker sells his soul to him. Tom initially rejects american savings bank lihue offer, but ultimately agrees.
    • Tom's wife confronts Old Scratch. She goes into the swamplands twice, hoping that Old Scratch would make a deal with her instead of her husband. Tom's wife absconds with all of the couple's valuables for the second meeting, but she disappears into the swamplands and is never heard from again.

    Boston

    • Bolstered by the ill-gotten riches offered by Old Scratch, Walker opens a broker's office in Boston. Walker lends money freely, but he is merciless in his dealings and ruins the lives of many borrowers, often repossessing their property.
    • A ruined speculator asks for a debt he owes to Tom to be forgiven. Walker refuses, but the devil rides in on a horse, easily sweeps Tom up, and gallops away. Tom is never seen again. After that, all the deeds and notes in Walker's safe turn to ash, and his house mysteriously burns down.

    Key Quotes

    The legend of a man who sells his soul to the devil and its devious consequences has been retold many times, but Irving's original words truly reveal the story.

    Setting the scene:

    "About the year 1727, just at the time when earthquakes were prevalent in New England and shook many tall sinners down upon their knees, there lived near this place a meager miserly fellow of the name of Tom Walker."

    Describing the protagonist:

    "Tom was a hard-minded fellow, not easily daunted, and he had lived so long with a termagant wife, that he did not even fear the devil."

    Describing the protagonist and his wife:

    ".they were so miserly that they even conspired to cheat each other. Whatever the woman could lay hands on she hid away: a hen could not cackle but she was on the alert to secure the new-laid egg. Her husband was continually prying about to detect her secret hoards, and many and fierce were the conflicts that took place about what ought to have been common property."

    Laying out the potential moral consequences of greed:

    "As Tom waxed old, however, he grew thoughtful. Having secured the good things of this world, he began to feel anxious about those of the next."

    The community's state of mind regarding the death of Walker and his wife:

    "The good people of Boston shook their heads and shrugged their shoulders, but had been so much accustomed to witches and goblins and tricks of the devil in all kinds of shapes from the first settlement of the colony, that they were not so much horror struck as might have been expected."

    Introduction to Sequences

    Students have studied number patterns before Algebra 2 and in this unit they learn to use algebraic representations for these patterns.  This first lesson is specifically designed to connect our study of sequences and series to what they already know about functions and number patterns.  

    There is a one-time investment in the creation of 6-10 sets of Sequence Strips (depending on your class size).  The strips are used in this and the next two lessons in this unit to increase engagement and foster flexible thinking.  Each of the sequence strips has the first 6 terms of a number sequence followed by 3 blanks for students to fill in.  I like to print these strips on brightly colored paper (one color per set) and then laminate them.  The color coding helps we keep sets together and the laminating makes it possible to reuse as students write their answers with wet-erase markers.

    It's important to give students the opportunity to explore so I create random student groups of 3 by "counting off" and provide each group with a set of sequence cards to work with.  

    I tell students that their task is to (1) extend the patterns and (2) sort the cards into 3 piles [MP1]. When students have completed the task, we come together as a group to discuss how they have sorted ode to the west wind by percy bysshe shelley analysis.
