    UTILIZING FILMS IN THE CLASSROOM
    UTILIZING FILM IN THE CLASSROOM
    Welcome!

    I hope you enjoyed TSOTSI. What things stood out for you as you watched it? What did you notice about culture, gender or psychology?

    How would you use this film (or a clip of it) to teach your subject?

    Please post not only your comment, but later, check back and comment on someone else's ideas. We encourage using this on-line post to provoke dialogue.

    To see how it works for real, you can see an old class site http://www.blurty.com/users/paracake or http://www.blurty.com/users/bigquestions. It is an extremely effective tool that the students really can get stimulated about and it avoids traditional hand-in-the-homework assignments. It is spectacularly easy to grade and it illicits much more intelligent responses from the kids because they can read others' thoughts and then comment, add, agree or refute already posted ideas.

    HOW TO POST A COMMENT ON-LINE:

    You must type your name at the bottom or your posting or put it in the SUBJECT heading. Mark off the "Anonymous" box to submit. Please put your name in the text or the subject heading. You can create a "title" for your comment if you want as well in the subject heading.
