The Identification of Criteria for the Effective Use of Films in Teaching History in the Classroom, in a Variety of Teaching Situations, Grades 7-12. Final Report.
Zangrando, Robert L.
This project was designed to examine the selection and use of films in the teaching of history, the nature of the film medium as an instrument for learning, and the manner in which the discipline and the medium can be combined effectively in the classroom. Teachers need to be made aware of audiovisual materials available to them and methods of securing the "right" film at the "right" time. In selecting films, the teacher must know the needs of the particular student-audience and the range of teaching strategies that can direct preparation and follow-up for film-oriented history instruction. It seems essential that trainers of teachers and curriculum specialists for social studies in the schools devote more time and energy during preservice and inservice programs to the question of how to use films effectively. Appendices concern identification of criteria for effective use of films, the use and abuse of motion pictures in classroom teaching, and sources of information for film acquisition. (TI)
