Using Films in the Social Studies: Government / US History provides the teacher with reproducible activities and worksheets which correlate to 15 films commonly used in high school social studies classes. These activities include simulations, debates, writing and research exercises and more. Some of the films are interchangeable, in that they may be used to cover specific political concepts or a particular era/event in America ’s history. 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 separately from local sources.
