How to be a Man
Since the 1940’s, classroom films have aimed at tutoring young adolescents on subjects such as sexual development, the importance of fitting in, and juvenile delinquency, all in tidy, ten-minute sermons disguised as dramas. This collection illustrates social norms from post-WWII America. (see also, HOW TO BE A WOMAN) more info
How to be a Woman
As the daughters of the baby-boom reached adolescence, American schools struggled to educate them on matters of sexual and social development. This fascinating collection contains films on wide-ranging topics as such as the reproductive system, cooking skills, self-defense, and how to appear more pleasing to others. more info
The Celluloid Salesman
NEW! This fourth collection of classroom shorts from the A/V Geeks Film Library reveals how sly marketers used 16mm films to shape new generations of loyal consumers. more info
Rules for School
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. more info
Educational films of the 1950s-70s were most fascinating when they moved beyond the three Rs to address more delicate issues—subjects that teachers often found difficult to discuss with their students. Sexual development, juvenile delinquency, and personal hygiene are just some of the awkward topics addressed in this assortment of films culled from the archives of A/V Geeks. more info
