(I’ve actually turned this into a short “Best” list – I’ve received many suggestions of movies, but not clips. So far I’ve only found one from Up The Down Staircase)
I like to use short scenes from television or the movies to illustrate concepts I’m trying to teach, and now I’d like to create a “Best” list of clips from TV and/or the movies showing examples of both good and bad classroom discussions – in small groups or in the entire class
These would be clips I’d be showing to students, not as a professional development exercise for teachers.
And they don’t even have to be in the classroom – clips of young people talking and demonstrating agreeing/disagreeing/building on what one of them said (or, not demonstrating those kinds of qualities) in any venue would work.
Please leave your suggestions and, ideally, links to video clips, in the comments section will be greatly appreciated.
Of course, if I include your suggestion in the final “Best” list, you’ll receive full credit.
Here they are:
