Editorial Reviews

Review

Sometimes showing is much more effective than telling. Almost every teacher or trainer has at some time thought a particular scene would make a great learning point in a program. Over the years, I ve used a number of movie clips in a variety of training programs. Why? Because Hollywood has more money to spend on movies and usually has better actors than we can afford in corporate training videos. When I was doing a program for the Defense Security Institute, I used a clip from Beverly Hills Cop where Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) climbs the fence of a bonded warehouse. When accosted, Axel turns the situation around and soon has everyone opening doors, files, and just about everything else. It was a perfect five-minute clip to have the defense contractors divided into two groups one looking for protocols that were violated and the other looking for the procedures that were violated. Participants watched with a different focus, and the ensuing discussion drove home a variety of learning points much more quickly than any other method I could have chosen. In her book 101 Movie Clips that Teach and Train, Becky Pluth has located poignant and relevant clips, suggested different content areas, and provided discussion questions to insure there is transfer from simple entertainment value to practical learning points that reinforce your training topics. --Bob Pike CSP, CPAE

Utilizing poignant movie scenes that cover content quickly, Becky helps trainers grab classroom interest immediately. She then follows it up with questions that garner solid discussion and ably teach topics in a memorable way. The only thing missing from this great selection of movie clips to liven up your training sessions is the popcorn! --Kevin Condrin, Director of Professional Education Sales & Marketing Karl Storz Endoscopy America

All teachers face a daily battle between the desire to create and facilitate innovative lessons and lack of time. This book provides them with a powerful weapon. With it, teachers can provide students with aha moments while foregoing burdensome prep time. The 101 clips and accompanying questions provide ready-made creative, multimedia lessons. --Sara K. Davis, PhD Manager, Education Resource Development USA TODAY

Format: Paperback
This is both a good reference for those who want to add impact and interest to the business training courses they create, as well as nice idea jumpstarter - in that it made me start thinking of scenes from other movies, tv shows and even commercials that might make useful tools around a topic.

The clips span a variety of types of movies and scenes, from "The Muppet Movie" and "Forrest Gump" to "Gladiator" and "Empire Strikes Back", so it's easy to find something appropriate.

One of it's better features is that each clip is listed with the topic areas that it is applicable to, and there's a selection for about every major business topic you'd train on (e.g. change management, teamwork, problem solving, goal setting, discrimination, innovative thinking, sales, etc., etc., etc). Plus, there's an index to the over 100 topic areas covered which directs you to the most applicable clips for your subject.

Another feature that helps it's usefulness is that suggested clips that are proceeded by something that may not be suitable for all audiences or offensive are flagged with a CAUTION! to alert you to make sure to stop and start them appropriately.

Each suggested clip is also listed with the movie title, distributor, year, film rating, plot summary, description of the clip, the time it appears in the movie (if you set it the DVD or VCR timer to 0:00 at the beginning of the film), the duration of the scene, and discussion questions.

A couple of things could be slightly improved. I agree with another reviewer that it would be easier to find the clips if they included the DVD chapter number, and time within that chapter. I also didn't find the discussion questions provided all that great, but imagine they're more intended to get you thinking about the types of questions most relevant to what you're communicating.

I am an educator in a hospital and this book helped me develop a presentation for managers where I work. They're a tough bunch, but they loved it. Using movies is a great stool to teach leadership.

Format: Paperback
It's a good book set up for quick references and teaching points. The only negative that I had was it would have been nice if the chapters were included for the clips, since we are now completely in the digital era. Otherwise an excellent guide to help.
