Turner Learning is offering schools an in-depth look at the effects of fantasy vs. reality in media through the TNT original film Don Quixote and accompanying curriculum guide. Don Quixote, based on Cervantes 17th century epic of a Spanish man whose love for knighthood and chivalry takes over his reality, tells the story of a man who has fallen for a then-new technology for spreading ideas, the book. The educational guide accompanying the film includes discussion questions and activities, character descriptions, and a historical backdrop. TNTs curriculum outreach for Don Quixote includes a complete Web site guide offering curriculum suggestions for integrating Cervantes novel into classroom instruction.
