Short Subjects and clips of videos, movies and film can often provide a visual experience that advances educational goals.
Possible Problems with This Clip: None.
What about showing the whole movie? The only reasons not to show students the entire movie are time constraints and the fact that young minds might not have the attention span for the full 80 minutes.
TWM does not provide clips or movies.
