I have one teacher that shows a movie a week. Some times we have a worksheet with it. Some times it is Remember the Titans, or a movie like that, and we have to write about what we learnt from it. Do you have any lazy teachers like this. This is a social study class.

Maybe he grew up that way.

In premedial times (the times before the post-helicopter parents era) parents put their kids in front of the TV and had the TV parenting their kids.

At low cost, this meant efficient use of the expensive device and a certain amount of free time for the parents.

Of course, there were side effects. Donald Trump became President, elected by those, now adult, kids. And Trudeau visited India confusing India with Bollywood or Disneyland.



TT: In Media and Art classes, we watched some movies and discussed it after writing essays about it.

During social study classes we just watched documentaries now an then and had a discussion or two afterwards.

Our PE teacher (coach) is lazy. Sometimes we catch him sleeping in his office while we are outside or in the gym usually on our own.

Social Studies takes in a lot of
history and geography. A lot of
old or even new movies are
historic and if the teacher
wants u to watch or read
this then I wouldn't consider
the teacher lazy.

I never had a teacher that did that exclusively as a teaching method.


Movies shown in class had to get permission slips and they were used as a treat.

My junior history teacher used a documentary series called “the century” to cover a century’s worth of US history, but he was quite engaged and quizzed is weekly and assigned readings paired well with the video content shown in class.


There’s a huge difference between teachers who throw movies at classes, and those who use them correctly to teach. You can tell because the teacher will know their stuff if you ask questions or challenge them on ideas or faults in logic.


Demographics also show that older people voted for Trump by the way, so that would be Gen X, Baby Boomers, and The greatest generation.

I think the populace being ignorant to how business and politics works (maybe because US history teacher quality is inconsistent nationwide) creates these issues.

I had a teacher of religious studies a number of years ago now who used to show a documentary every couple of weeks. It's not lazy to use video to teach, in fact it offers different points of view and perspectives.

Whilst we are on the topic of lazy teachers, I had one who just made us read the textbook and fill in a sheet after each section. Every lesson, three times a week, and I'd say about 80% of the lessons with him were like that. Thank god I only had him for a year!

2 years ago my english teacher grammary class consisted in her giving us like 15 exercises to do at home, and spend the hour in class correcting them, with never explaining the lesson.
When I asked her 'do you not explain the lesson during class?' All she answered was 'well if I explain and a student doesn't understand and I have to explain them again, we will never have the time to correct the exercises'
I replied a student will always have more chances to understand a lesson if they get explained at least once rather than never at all, but she didn't like it

We have video clips a lot or bits of DVD but noot often whole films. I guess it depends why you are seeing it and what you have to do about it afterwards. We have done some stuff on religion in the media so you need to see some. Also for drama we need to analyse scenes.
Just videos does sound like a boring waste of time though....but at least better than Oscar's Engliish lessons

Iíve always thought teachers should just make a YouTube channel and go over correct answers and let you do that at home and give the students the link to their educational YouTube channel.

Prob solved and they only have to do it once if they reuse the same worksheet packets every year for different kids.

But does anybody listen to that suggestion.....no.

We had this a bit in my old school.
Our PE teacher and my English teacher would show us movies and then have us do work/papers on them.
Usually the teacher would pass out or just leave the class.
Boring but easy work I guess

Maybe because this method sucks...
As I said, a student will always have more chances to understand a lesson that a teacher explains rather than by just reading a book or listening to a video. They can ask questions directly to the teacher and benefit from questions asked by other students. The more interactive a class is, the more efficient.
On a video you can not interrupt the teacher and ask him to reexplain what he just said. If you have to ask him through a youtube comment or something and wait until the next day to get your answer, that's not gonna work

But it frees up classtime to do the explanations, and do corrections on a studentís own time.

We had a teacher that would record YouTube videos on how to do Maths problems and questions. I thought it was quite useful.

Yo man everyone learns differently right?
So teach is trying to grasp all the class by different means
Maybe you already got the lesson and understood, thatís awesome if you did.

But the teacher needs to teach to the lowest denominator. So if you got it, already, and perhaps you watched the movie ďThe TitansĒ
Maybe you didnít learn all you shoulda woulda coulda huh?

I didn't get a word of what you mean...

Everyone learns differently => yes, absolutely.
So?
How will replacing a teacher in class by a video improve things?
