Teach with movies: Lights, camera, learn

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Used in course

Comment: I used this site to develop lesson plans using movies in courses designed for students with disabilties. Each lesson and related activities was based on viewing 15 to 20 minute segments of movies and the following up with a series of questions, discussion, and related writing assignments. I found this a great way to engage students and to allow them to meet course objectives in courses titled, Self Esteem, Career and Job Planning, and Transition to Independent Living.
