Classroom Cinema.
Maynard, Richard A.
Films can be an effective method of teaching English, the humanities, and social studies to students from the junior high school through the community college level. This book in part a guide and in part a teacher's memoir, sets forth a rationale for using films in the classroom to encourage reading, writing, thoughtful discussion, and an understanding of today's visual media. Its chapters describe ways of using films in units on such topics as women, sports in society, and contemporary ethics, and they also present information on selecting, renting, funding, and scheduling films. In addition to citing a number of films in the text, the book includes an annotated list of 100 film titles; a selected bibliography for teachers and students, and a list of film distributors, are also included.
