Teaching with Film.
Many feature length films and films made for television are adaptable to classroom use, especially in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, and students may accept a well-produced film (even if it is older) more readily than an inexpensively produced educational film. This booklet discusses how animated films, narrative feature films, documentaries, and personal films might be used for teaching, and offers many specific films as examples. Separate chapters are devoted to film selection, presentation of a film to students, and where to obtain films. The author advocates the teaching of film as a form of literature (such as art or drama) by integrating film studies into the required curriculum in the junior and senior high schools. (JAB)
