Abstract

The utility of motion picture films for instructional purposes is well recognized, and represents a neglected teaching tool. Research shows that films can be effective in engaging the interest of students in an appealing manner, and they can provide vicarious experience so we can see the world through another's eyes. With the growth of videocassettes, feature films should become an economical and more widely employed teaching medium. Suggestions for using feature films in education are given, and outstanding, sociologically-relevant films in 39 categories are given.
