I was wondering if there's a database of school-appropriate films that have educational tie-ins anywhere on the web? I teach high school and there are times when I'd like to find a film that would tie-in with a lesson that I'm teaching, but I have concerns about the content being appropriate. For example, one of my favorite "teaching" films is Finding Forrester
; no nudity, no violence, and generally the language/dialog is fine, except for two instances of the "F" word. Before showing it, I always discuss this with the class a day or two beforehand and let them know that if anyone will be offended that they just need to let me know; I have yet to have a student say anything, but still. I was also wanting to show Shakespeare in Love
but upon re-watching it, realized that there were a couple of sex scenes that made it a no-go.
If something like this doesn't exist, and I were to create it, do you think it would get used by the teahcing community?
