    This has been one of the most enjoyable online courses I have taken! As a librarian, I don't teach regular classes. But this year I decided to add to each of the four different grade-level books clubs I lead a 'movie month' where we will spend about two weeks of lunchtimes watching a movie that corresponds to a book we are reading. Of all the online classes I have ever taken, I truly feel I have garnered the most 'takeaways' with this class that I can directly apply to student learning. I look forward to using these tools next month!

    I cannot say enough about how enlightening this course was. I've always enjoyed using film in the classroom, but this course definitely provided me with a newfound perspective on how to effectively teach it with substance. I look forward to applying all that I've learned to my future lessons by using film and literature as an effective way to engage my students. Highly recommended.

    I absolutely loved this course! It has broadened my thinking about film and will certainly enrich my teaching. I enjoyed reading John Golden's vibrant and practical text READING IN THE DARK and will put into practice many of his ideas. (I share his taste in films.) I recommended the text to a former student who will be teaching a film class this fall, and she has already ordered her copy. Thank you to my professor, Elaine Reimer-Paré, whose insightful comments I have valued (for two courses now). I will recommend this class to some of my teaching colleagues. Sharon
