When I was in high school, I took a class in Film Lit….reluctantly. To my surprise, I learned more in that class than from any other English class I ever took. When I started teaching, I grabbed every chance I could to teach with film. What did I see: engagement, enthusiasm, and genuine, authentic learning. When trends in education changed, and I saw the opportunity to continue developing lessons with visual media, I took it. You never know what will spark an interest in your students.
