This is the site of the new, bigger and better, Film Class. This exciting offering was created by popular demand by those who experienced the excitement and fun of the original film class for educators that ran for 14 years as a part of the old Summer of Growth program.This Summer's Matinee Schedule . . .
Education and Film II is expanded in several ways, including more films with additional themes to discuss and analyze. For those new to this offering, you need not have taken Film I as a prerequisite to this class.
The participants view and analyze nine major feature films that portray a variety of specific aspects of society, schooling, and education. Students will engage in class activities that use the films as focal points for professional self-examination and will consider ways of reconceptualizing and improving reflective practice. Consideration will also be given to how such films shape public images of teachers, students, and schools both past and present.
