Integrating Film and Television into Social Studies Instruction. ERIC Digest.
Paris, Matthew J.
This Digest suggests ways in which film and video media can be effectively integrated into a social studies curriculum. It outlines John E. O'Connor's "Three Types of Questions" and "Four Frameworks for Historical Inquiry," offering examples of how they might be utilized to present video media in a social studies context. The three questions deal with content, production, and reception. The four frameworks focus on: (1) "The Moving Image as Representation of History"; (2) "The Moving Image as Evidence for Social and Cultural History"; (3) "Actuality Footage as Evidence for Historical Fact"; and (4) "The History of the Moving Image as Industry and Art Form." The Digest gives a substantial listing of recently published resources as well as various Internet resources available. (KCM)
