a student's love for history
Every year, during our unit on the American Revolution, I screen The Patriot for students. Students always enjoy the film and are enthusiastic to see aspects of the war that we have discussed in class play out in the movie. I've yet to meet a student, however, who enjoyed the movie more than dear Anthony. From wanting to do extra credit projects to dressing up as Mel Gibson's character for Halloween to parading around school with his flag I found on Amazon, I've yet to meet a more die hard fan and it's made my job as a Social Studies teacher that much more enjoyable! :)
