Movies Anyone?

I love movies as much as the next guy, but a post today by Gary Stager reminded me of several issues:

1.  It is illegal to show a commercial film to a public audience w/o permission from the publisher (even in schools).

2. The never-ending “not enough time” issue surely means that we have no time for popping in the newest DVD available on the market.

3. Instead of taking two hours to show a movie to highlight the moral, spend time brainstorming with colleagues and plan out a lesson that would be more succinct and powerful.

4. The majority of movies we show in classrooms have already been seen numerous times by students.

If this blog post interests you, read Gary’s blog post.
