Let's go to the movies! Today's students experience various forms of media at every turn. Fiction and non-fiction film can play a vital role in the classroom, but can also present certain challenges for educators.

Co-presented by MOHAI and KCTS 9, this free teacher training will explore the ways in which educators can use film to enhance social studies learning in the classroom. Educators from MOHAI's staff will present materials from their in-class film program and discuss useful tools for talking about film in the classroom, and KCTS 9 will introduce PBS LearningMedia and discuss some of the online resources and lessons available to teachers. The workshop will also include a tour of MOHAI's new Celluloid Seattle exhibit, which examines the history and identity of Seattle through the films that were made here and through the history of movie-going in our city. Four clock hours available with additional fee. Training runs 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
