Film Reflection:Connections to Classroom Learningby Sharon Thomas

Multiple Forms of ExpressionI want to go beyond just the use of books in the classroom. I want to incorporate the use of poetry, journals, speeches, letters, interviews, songs, video, cartoons, artwork, plays, and technology. This will help to engage students with a variety of interests and make the learning relevant.

Provide Multiple Perspectives I plan to do the following types of activities in my classroom: debates, reading from a variety of sources, persuasive writings, class discussions in which students justify their stance on a position, interviews with parents, experts, and community leaders.

Collaborative ProjectsStudents need opportunities to work together and share ideas. These types of activities can be based on interests or viewpoints that the students have. I plan to incorporate problem-based learning activities in which students work together to find solutions to problems. By doing so, they learn to negotiate, and use communication and leadership skills.

As a result of watching the film The People Speak (Zinn, Moore, & Arnove, 2009), I have made connections that will impact my teaching of integrated social studies and literacy in the classroom.
