About this item
Prior to the era of the open classroom, schoolhouses were places of order and discipline. Assisting in the behavioral conditioning necessary for a smoothly-operating classroom, educational filmmakers often focused their attention on proper school-going etiquette. This collection of films samples some of the subtle (and not-so-subtle) messages that were communicated to multiple generations of American youth, on topics such as safety (Jam Handy's "Take Your Choice"), vandalism ("Mike Makes a Mark"), and overzealous school spirit ("School Spirit and Sportsmanship"). The films also serve as a time capsule of sorts, offering a fascinating glimpse into the concerns of parents and teachers about the threat and consequences of nonconformist behavior. Also includes "School Rules: How They Help Us", "How Quiet Helps the School", "Manners in School", "Safe Living at School", "Making the Most of School", "Rescue Man" and "Noontime Nonsense".
Film Notes by A/V Geeks, "Bonus Shorts: A Teacher's Guide" - "Maintaining Classroom Discipline", "When Should Grown-Ups Stop Fights", "Civil Defense in School", "Adult Guards for School Crossings", and "Story-Telling: Can You Tell It In Order?".
Some Shorts Presented in Black & White.
