Read the questions on this file viewing worksheet before you watch Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life (2009) so that you will know what to look for while you watch. (The link to Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life is on the first page of this module.) I recommend that you take notes while you watch, or right after. However, make sure that your note taking doesn't interfere with carefully watching the film, and you should not write down every detail from the film.
After you finish viewing the film, answer each question on the Film Viewing Worksheet in paragraph form with complete sentences. (Type your answers right after the question using as much space as you need.) Answers need to be complete and comprehensive, demonstrating that you paid attention to the film and thought about what was shown on the screen. You may use more than one paragraph if necessary. Many students find it helps them to use key words from the question in their answer – especially in their topic sentences.
