Videos with classroom material

I just saw a post on asking about teaching and learning in the movies.

I've got a number of favourites on my YouTube page -

Here are the best ones related to classroom interactions

The first is a classic from "Teacher Education Series" (1947)
How To Maintain Classroom Discipline - Good And Bad Methods Training Educational Video

The second is from a British comedian called Catherine Tate
Catherine Tate Show: Lauren - French exam - The Catherine Tate Show - BBC comedy

The third is from an American TV series that was very popular in the UK - Beware strong language and drug references!
THE WIRE - Mr. Prezbo teaches Michael & Kareem how to gamble

I've also consulted WikiAnswers and got this list -

school of rock and it's old, but kindergarten cop
Here is a list of ones that I know off the top of my head (including school related scenes and topics)...
"Stand and Deliver", "Lean on Me", "Finding Forrester", "Patch Adams", "The Man Without a Face", "The Great Debaters", "Mona Lisa Smile", "Dead Poets Society", "School of Life", "The Trouble With Angels", "Anne Frank", "Making the Grade", "Pay It Forward", "Freedom Writers", "All I Want", "School Ties", "Mr. Holland's Opus", "A Beautiful Mind", "Simon Birch"
All of them very good movies too!
Oh yeah here are a bunch of others...after looking through my DVD collection...These ones have scenes with school or may be based on school...
"American Beauty", "Andre", "Bridge to Terabithia", "Bring It On", "Casper", "A Cinderella Story", "Clueless", "The Day After Tomorrow", "Dazed and Confused", "Disturbia", "Freaky Friday", "Harry Potter", "Ice Princess", "John Tucker Must Die", "Legally Blonde", "Man of the House", "Mean Girls", "Matilda", "My Girl", "Napoleon Dynamite", "Never Been Kissed", "October Sky", "Remember the Titans", "Scream", "She's the Man", "Sydney White", "10 Things I Hate About You", "The Virgin Suicides", "A Walk to Remember" And I'm sure countless others...

This would have been really hard to put into 140 characters!!

Would be good to get some others so please leave a comment and I can add it to the Wiki later :o)

  1. Hey Mike,

    One high-school set film I really like is 'The Faculty' directed by Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, SpyKids). The cool kids all get taken over by the aliens - very clever =)
