        The Amish - Teacher's Resources: Discussion Guide

        This guide is intended to spark discussion of, and reflection on, a little-understood religious community whose intense faith and strict adherence to tradition have by turns fascinated and repelled, inspired, and perplexed America. The film examines how and why the Amish -- a culture marked by separatism and a rejection of modern technology -- have thrived within one of the most individualistic, technology-oriented societies on Earth. Learn more with this guide from American Experience: "The Amish."
