Cultural Proficiency: Using Films to Get Groups Talking--and Listening--to One Another
Nelson, Sarah W.; Guerra, Patricia L.
Journal of Staff Development, v30 n2 p57-58 Spr 2009
Full-length films allow viewers to see the complexity and nuances of cultural interactions. Discussions following full-length films tend to be deeper and more insightful than those in response to a short clip. This makes watching full-length films an excellent strategy for helping teachers unpack beliefs, values, and stereotypes. In this article, the authors discuss ways of using films to develop cultural proficiency.
