History at the Movies

Films often reflect the typical feelings and events associated with specific periods of time. They are a great way to understand the perspectives and thought processes of people from different eras.

In order to further explore the role of movies in U.S. and world history, the International Education Program screened films with historical topics for high school students. These special viewings were preceded by study guides so students could approach them in a historical context. Teacher packets include all lessons, handouts, and TEK correlations.
