Essential Question: What can be learned about teaching by viewing movies set in the classroom? Note: The response forms provide choices for either the teacher, the students, or both. Time: 120 minutes Activity: From time to time, the use of movies can enrich the curriculum by reinforcing classroom activities and/or providing topics for discussion, if appropriate follow-up activities are utilized. The following list is not intended to be complete, nor should teachers feel that they must show any of these movies. Also, you may find it more useful (time wise, to reinforce a point) to show only a scene or two from one of the movies. Some teachers may find it useful to offer one or more titles as an optional assignment for interested students, or they can be viewed as homework for contract points.
