Several Oscar-nominated films this year could be useful teaching tools, writes Matt Davis, an editorial assistant at Edutopia. In this blog post, he suggests teachers use films such as "Lincoln" to teach students about media literacy and to engage them in a range of topics. Davis also shares teaching resources, including the Teachers' Guide Series from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and an article on visual literacy.
