Study Guide For Teachers - Iris Chang: The Rape of Nanking, a Feature-length Documentary Film

An online resource published by BC ALPHA, 2008. Iris Chang: The Rape of Nanking is a sophisticated and powerful film that deals with difficult subject matter. For this reason, it is most appropriate for use at the senior secondary level (Grades 10‐12) – a level at which curriculum connections can be readily established. In British Columbia, for example, these topics figure prominently in the provincially prescribed curriculum for History 12 (2006) and Social Justice 12 (2008). In Ontario, they figure prominently in the provincially prescribed curriculum for various courses in Canadian and World Studies Grades 10 to 12 (2005). Comparable curricula from other provinces also include these topics, and can be addressed by this study guide.
