Hughes, Linda; Nahmani, Lois
This guide to films appropriate for junior and senior high school classes of English as a second language (ESL) includes general comments on the use of films in ESL instruction, notes on how to use the film guide, an outline of procedures and class activities for the presentation of films, and an annotated filmography. The films are listed in two categories: those emphasizing content (animals, biography, American culture, global culture, minority youth culture, food, American geography, history, science, fables and folktales, general stories, and teenage stories) and those emphasizing skills (career education, creative writing, grammar, study skills, and survival skills). Feature length films and films without narration are also listed. Many entries include information about the film's length, date, and recommended level and a brief annotation. (MSE)
