Just to add to this post, if you’re big on showing historical movies in class VidAngel is a great tool. Many historical movies like Amistad have inappropriate sections with nudity. VidAngel allows you to skip those sections of the movie before watching.

I do a unit on genocide in my 11/12 grade human geography class and show Hotel Rwanda and it makes a huge impact on the kids. I also show The Good Lie if I have time and that's a great one!

I like to show Iron Jawed Angels for the Progressive Era (women’s suffrage). After testing, I always show Taking Chance, about escorting a fallen marine home. It’s pretty short, based on a true story, very insightful!

Yes. US History is taught in the 10th or 11th grade. I also had a few stragglers that joined the class since it was an elective, but they still had the opportunity to learn new things.

The Pianist for the Holocaust is one I always plan on. It does a great job showing what conditions were like in the Jewish ghettos in Poland.

I’m allowed to take my senior class to the movies once a year. We’ve seen Hacksaw Ridge and Midway in the past few years, I would recommend them both for WWII pacific theatre

Tough question... we have such a packed curriculum to get through in one year for USHST. It is very difficult to show an entire movie in class. However, the first that comes to mind for a history class is Schindler’s List.
