This collection of U.S. history-related materials is designed to transform "media-passive" viewers into "media-active" students who question what they see on the screen.
Fourteen films, arranged chronologically from colonial days through the end of the 20th century, are each detailed with background, plot synopsis, resource list, and two reproducible student handouts: a page on what to watch for and a page of questions. Among the movies: The Patriot, Amistad, Glory, Dances With Wolves, The Grapes of Wrath, Dr. Strangelove, and The Long Walk Home. The book also provides a film analysis guide sheet, a guide to Vietnam films (fictional and documentary), and an OK Corral shootout study comparing three films.
