The Celluloid Teacher
Breault, Rick
Educational Forum, v73 n4 p306-317 2009
Though the filmed portrayal of teachers can be inspiring or humorously satirical, the stereotype offered in those films might tell us much about how the larger culture views traditionally trained teachers and how schools can be reformed. It is argued here that Hollywood's emphasis on the need for outsiders to come in and rescue students from teachers and on the power of personality over pedagogy is potentially damaging to the image of the profession.
