This panel seekspapers on approaches to using film in the college-level foreign language classroom. How can film be incorporated in the curriculum? How can instructors exploit short clips, long feature films, and short films to help develop not only students' grammar and functional skills, but also their critical thinking and cross-cutural understanding? How do we incorporate history and culture when dealing with a film in class? Please send 250-500 word abstracts to Inma Taboada taboada@uic.edu with 'Approaches to Film' in subject line.
