I saw this movie for the first time tonight. As a former high school teacher, I saw many uses in the classroom. First, I will list the relevances that teachers are often required to provide before letting a movie be shown in class, even when a substitute will be present. Then I’ll ask everyone ways of testing students over the material. I invite others to add to either list. What would be nice is a picture-in-picture version of the movie that did not interfere with the display of closed captioning already on the film while taking advantage of the movie’s ratio that creates a lot of black space. Moving the image down so the black space is at the top and can then contain notes, like this dance style is “soft shoe”. Students then have notes to write while watching the movie. Of course, students on in IEP may have the notes provided so they may focus on the movie. After the movie, a test incorporating still shots from the movie can be completed. Can this be done with Apple’s Keynote or other software teachers might have? First, relevance list: Three men meeting up after 10 years, because they were best friends 10 years ago, relevant to high school seniors and expectations for future reunions ”I like myself” song and dance routine relevant to all ages as good counseling. Best context is in the whole movie, not a cut scene. Portrays an image of a successful, strong female lead who is independent, intelligent, and capable of doing things on her own. Gene Kelly does an entire dance skit on skates, rollerskates! This is an level of athleticism that may not be appreciated by modern students, however it should be brought to their attention. The style of soft shoe is done when the three characters reminisce in three different video panels. This is relevant to dance and therefore drama. In politics the idea of a single hoodlum, a hamburger joint owner with wife and kids, and a high class salesman without kids, all getting along. The scene with the ad for Kleanse Right, towards the end of the movie, compare that in politics/history class with the modern video YouTube trends. History and politics: the number with the ad for cleanse right, how did that reflect the current YouTube laws from the FCC regarding declaring supporters Closes with a song appropriate for graduation Nominated for 2 Academy Awards Shakespeare was 500+ years ago, but is referred to in a way that shows why it is good to know your quotes. Golden age of Hollywood is part of American history and arguably as widely disseminated as any Shakespeare. oh what a tangled web we weave when first we attempt to educate...while having a substitute teacher.
