“Hey. Don't ever let somebody tell you... You can't do something. Not even me. All right?” The above quote from The Pursuit of Happyness is one of the reasons that led the authors of Getting the Best of Movies through Multiple Intelligences - Teaching for Understanding to select the film to design activities on the lines of David Perkins’s theory of Teaching for Understanding (TfU) and Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences (MI). Syriana, the famous 2005 thriller, addresses petroleum politics, its global influence and manifold effects: economic, legal, and social as experienced, among others, by characters of various social, racial, professional and national backgrounds in different geographical scenarios. The different storylines and the possibilities of exploring them were key in making the authors decide to prepare teaching materials for learners of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) on the same lines as The Pursuit of Happyness. They truly hope all users of this Interactive Guide will profit from the different angles that have been considered to experience with their different intelligences but also with opportunities to enhance comprehension.
