This viewer’s guide is intended to help teachers and others who offer screenings of My Name is Julius. The guide will facilitate discussions related to the film, and it includes sections on four different themes that facilitators might wish to focus on:

●      Hearing Loss

●      Aging

●      Isolation

●      Community Service

Each section contains a series of prompts for independent writing or discussions. Some questions are directed towards specific audiences (such as people who have a hearing loss, school-age children, or older adults), and the facilitator can choose questions appropriate for the particular audience.

The guide also includes a glossary (words indicated by underlining) and suggestions on further resources.

We are continuously improving this Viewers’ Guide for My Name is Julius. If you have questions, comments, and/or suggestion for improvement, please contact us.
