Faces of Change. Visual Evidence: An Instructional Approach. Instructor's Notes: Film/Essay Series.
Miller, Norman N.
Designed for use with the multidisciplinary film project, "Faces of Change, Five Rural Societies in Transition" for the college social studies curriculum, this manual contains an overview of the material and its underlying philosophy and suggests teaching strategies. The first section discusses the overall approach, the use of films in teaching, and the philosophy behind the use of visual materials as reliable raw data. The second section describes how to use the materials and discusses resources available to the instructor, covering teaching strategy, course format, film descriptions, and themes that can serve as the focus for a general course using the "Faces of Change" films and essays. Using the theme of "change" for demonstration purposes, the manual presents ideas for building a course or a portion of a course around a general theme. Appendixes contain a subject index to teaching themes, an instructor's tear out briefing form, and a list of the films in the series, their length, authors and filmmakers. (CM)
