Title: Breakthrough Toolkit
Url: https://www.breakthroughdoc.com/toolkit
Publisher: Uncommon Productions
Description: Jim Allison: Breakthrough tells the story of Allison, the 2018 Nobel Prize in Medicine winning scientist, and his "stubborn [and] visionary quest to find a cure for cancer." While the general public will need access to select streaming services (such as Amazon Prime Video or PBS Passport) to view the film, educators can fill out a short form to gain free access. In addition to the film, educator's can implement the Educator Toolkit. This is a great classroom resource to engage students in discussions about science and perseverance; as biology professor Maia Larios-Saiz, PhD notes, "this film will inspire your students and foster discussion not only about the science behind immunotherapy against cancer, but also about the process of science as a human endeavor and how dreaming big and working hard pays off in the end." The toolkit splits the film into three segments (Introduction to Cancer, The Immune System, and From Discovery to Rollout) with a unique lesson plan for each, allowing it to be easily divided between class periods. Plus, educators have access to bonus materials including a glossary, summary worksheet (that doubles as both a movie guide and "pop quiz"), discussion guide, and activities that profile various STEM career paths. The toolkit is sponsored by Dragonfly Therapeutics and Skyhawk Therapeutics.
