A collection of essay prompts for various movies. Over 35 files are included in this collection. I have also included general movie resources. Most of these files are in pdf format and have been stored in a zip folder. Hopefully this reorganization will make the files easier to use.

Streaming Video

by Mr. Harpine .

This is a list of United Streaming Videos that I feel are useful. This list is designed to help teachers sort through the large quantity of material to find high quality resources. If your school does not have United Streaming, the films I listed should be available from the original publisher. I have not listed anything which did not air on tv at some point (I don't think the videos created by United Learning for the web site are very good).

Vanguard

by Mr. Harpine .

Vanguard is a news/ current events show on Current.tv. The show is fast paced and interesting however, some topics are not appropriate for school. In other words, you should preview the episodes before showing them.
