When I was in high school, as soon as the lights went down, it was time for zoning out. But I've also seen lots of great curriculum packages and lessons intended to engage students that accompany or complement documentaries and feature films. I really believe that the moving image can be a great tool for education in more ways than one. What kinds of lessons have you planned that used films well? For visual literacy? Critical thinking? History? Any resources to offer about how to integrate film into your classes? Here's a starter - a curriculum package called Story of Movies that uses "To Kill a Mockingbird" to teach an integrated unit about visual literacy and social studies - we've got a video about it here.
