Published in 1983, this book considers how films are used in secondary school as teaching aids in English and Film courses. Based on a dissertation presented to Temple University, the book tackles three main questions: firstly, it explores the ways that film is used be secondary school English teachers as an adjunct to instruction. Secondly it surveys the number and types of courses offered in film study and filmmaking in specific secondary schools. Thirdly it compares and contrasts the extent and degree of teaching about film as an artistic medium of communication.
