America In Prime Time Assignment

1. 3 television shows that explain how men/dads/husbands have been depicted are The Dick Van Dyke Show, Father Knows Best and Leave It to Beaver. They showed the typical man who would go to work and bring home the ‘bacon’ for the family. He would come home and expect a home cooked dinner on the table, a pretty wife waiting for them with kids that are clean and behaved. They would all be respectful to each other and the father would make all the decisions.

What purpose does film serve in the history classroom or in the telling of history? Blog Post #1

Film as a younger medium is an odd choice for historical use. With the first films being shown publicly only happening in 1893 there’s only just over a century’s worth of historical film to use which limits its usefulness in teaching history. As well as this film is flawed as a teaching tool in that sometimes historical accuracy takes a backseat to drama in an effort to make a profit.
