Using Film Clips in the Classroom: Something Old, Something New?

Brian Levey

Abstract


Abstract: This essay describes the process by which a new college professor embraced using film clips in an undergraduate Business Law course, with the goal of enhancing student engagement and learning.  In particular this paper focuses on: (1) theme days, in which a movie, TV show or actor is used a vehicle to teach an entire class; and (2) review sessions, in which a film is used as a vehicle to review material previously taught, e.g., in anticipation of a test.
