Classroom Management: 7 Fun Ways to Watch a Film

Most teachers have heard the plea many times: “Can we watch a movie in class?” Many succumb, others refuse, but sometimes, a film can add lots to the academic environment.

With that in mind, today on, frequent contributing writer Jordan Catapano, himself a seasoned high school English teacher in the Chicago suburbs, takes a look at the ways to supplement your curriculum with a few films throughout the year.

Jordan’s ideas include:
  • Create the atmosphere
  • Give your reviews
  • Pause and predisct
  • And more!

Jordan sums up his article thusly: “When we keep the objective of learning at the forefront of all we do – including the viewing of fun films in school – then we can design effective lessons that keep students’ minds stimulated. Show films with the goal to encourage thinking in fun ways.”
