The Legend of Burnout Barry Teaching Toolkit
About this Study Guide
In The Legend of Burnout Barry, teenage friends Wheely, Brent and Shay are tightly bound by their shared and insatiable appetite for adventure. But when Wheely’s obsession with being the town record holder becomes more important than his friends, he risks losing more than just the title.
The discussion starters and learning tasks outlined in The Legend of Burnout Barry Teaching Toolkit provide ideas for Years 5 - 8 students to engage with this entertaining short film. Tasks will develop students’ storytelling understandings and skills, with relevant Australian Curriculum links noted for English.
While not the focus of this resource, teachers could also link the film’s themes of friendship and teamwork to Health and Physical Education and Personal and Social Capability curriculum content.
