What do movies like Mean Girls, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Freedom Writers teach us about education? Do the way films represent school, students, and teaching reflect or reproduce our views about particular students and schools? What and how do movies teach us and why does it matter? This course introduces students to selected essential topics in modern educational theory and practice using depictions of teachers, students, and schools in movies as springboards for inquiry.
