December Webinar - History Goes to the Movies: Historical Fiction's Place in the Classroom

Many school children learn about pivotal historical happenings not from their textbooks but from feature films. Used judiciously, historical fiction can be a rich resource in the classroom, engaging students' interest and providing educators a ready audience for discussing fact, fiction, and interpretation.

Join presenter Heather Kensill as she discusses Medal of Honor stories such as John Finn's, set against parallel movie portrayals, such as those in the movie Pearl Harbor.
