Learning With the Movies - Review

Learning with the Movies
 by Beth Holland includes a listing of cinema movies and made-for-TV movies that will enrich any unit study or lesson plan.

The beauty 
of this guide is that all the movies are organized chronologically 
beginning with Bible Times and Ancient Egypt through 1900's. If you're
 doing a study on Rome, simply look through the section on Ancient Rome. 
In the Rome section, she has included Ben-Hur, Demetrius 
and the Gladiator, Fall of the Roman Empire, Julius Caesar, Jupiter's 
Darling, Quo Vadis?, The Robe, Sign of the Pagan (about Attila the 
Hun), and Spartacus. There is also some blank space for you to list 
additional movies as you find them.

She has also 
included movies related to the Music/Arts (example: The Agony and the 
Ecstasy which is about Michelangelo), Biographies (example: Abe Lincoln
in Illinois), Sports (example: Brian's Song), Science/Nature (example: 
Apollo 13), Horses (example: Miracle of the White Stallions), Medicine 
(example: The Girl in White), Literature (example: A Christmas Carol),
 Holidays (example: Miracle on 34th Street), and Family Films (just
 plain fun).

Each movie listing includes its production date,
 Beth's star rating, and the parental guidance rating (PG, G, etc). An
alphabetical listing is in the back of the book.

This is a book you'll want to keep nearby for lesson planning!
