CHW3M Grade 11 World History to the 16th Century – Hollywood Movie List

The following is a partial list of recommended Hollywood movies that can be viewed to help supplement course content. All movies should be viewed in the context of the time period and remember to keep in mind that often factual material is often sacrificed in order to make the film more marketable for a larger audience. The aim of watching these suggested movies is merely to help you get a better understanding of the time period by demonstrating typical dress, living conditions, politics, society, popular culture, etc. The movies selected will hopefully give you a “Snapshot” of Course Material and the time period being studied…
