AMERICAN HISTORY ON THE SCREEN
COMPLETE SET: 3 DVDs, resource book
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
A collection of U.S. history-related films and a thought-provoking resource book designed to transform "media-passive" viewers into "media-active" students who question what they see on the screen.
This set contains three of the 14 films detailed in the book, arranged chronologically from the American Revolution through the 20th century. The book includes background on each film, a plot synopsis, resource lists, and two reproducible student handouts: a page on what to watch for and a page of questions. The book also provides a film analysis guide sheet, a guide to Vietnam films (fictional and documentary), and, for an intriguing exercise in media literacy, a comparative study of the shootout at the OK Corral as shown in different films.
