VOLUME 5
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, on topics such as safety (Jam Handy's Take Your Choice), vandalism (Mike Makes His 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.
