The Claims of Documentary: Expanding the Educational Significance of Documentary Film
Frank, Jeff
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v45 n10 p1018-1027 2013
The documentary film is a popular curriculum tool, and the goal of this paper is to expand the educational significance of the documentary genre. I argue that current understandings of this genre are limited and limiting, and offer an alternative perspective on the genre. This alternative will be built from Stanley Cavell's philosophy of education, in particular, his understanding of the role that "representativeness" plays in teaching and learning.
