Using Films in the Social Studies: World History

by Helen Joyce


Using Films in the Social Studies: World History provides the teacher with reproducible activities and worksheets which correlate to 14 films commonly used in high school social studies classes. These activities include simulations, debates, writing and research exercises and more. The films selected include Western, Eastern and African cultures. The dynamic material found in this book enhances lessons and curriculum, thus creating a more stimulating learning environment for students.

Elements: A pacing guide, based upon a traditional schedule of 50-minute classes, is provided and can be modified to accommodate block schedules. The final chapter includes answer keys to all activities and related worksheets.

DVD: Included with the book is a DVD with editable assessments in MS Word document files plus PDF files of the student activities. Both files can be printed for use in class. Movies must be rented from local sources.
