Prevent Summer Learning Loss ~ Tip #27 ~ History

I just finished a college course about 1939 movies. 1939 is considered a pivotal year in film-making. Some of the films are just for fun, such as The Wizard of Oz. But others can give you an amazing amount of history. The ones we watched that can help you learn a little history include Stagecoach, Destry Rides Again, Young Mr. Lincoln, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and Gone With the Wind. When you're finished watching them, write a short summary of the history you watched in each film.

If you're a teacher, I highly recommend you watch Goodbye, Mr. Chips. You might even consider it for an in-service at the beginning of the school year. It will inspire and help you remember why you became a teacher.
