MOVIE SYNOPSIS

A gripping drama about three lives irrevocably changed when a gun is accidentally fired on a busy Los Angeles street, SHOT is a visceral roller coaster ride unflinchingly exploring the consequences of gun violence in America.  

SHOT has been praised by respected critics including Leonard Matlin calling it a "compelling real-life drama" and Rex Reed saying it is "sobering, suspenseful and exemplary."

ABOUT THIS LESSON

In our school, Professional Development includes Active Intruder training which we then go over with our students. Jeremy Kagan's movie, which I showed in my class, brings home the consequences of gun violence in our community. I feel that it was important for my students to see and then discuss this excellent film. We used Professor Kagan's effective lesson plan as well.
