Lisa Buchanan, associate professor of education in the Dr. Jo Watts Williams School of Education, coauthored a study of preservice teachers’ analytic skills with Jeremy Hilburn, UNC Wilmington, and Wayne Journell, UNC Greensboro in “The Journal of Social Studies Research.”
This study is part of a larger body of published scholarship with Hilburn and Journell on using film to examine contemporary immigration experiences and issues with teacher candidates in elementary, middle grades and secondary education. Using qualitative methodology, the team analyzed the candidates’ skill use (e.g., corroboration, sourcing) as well as cognitive and affective stances as they looked at the clips within the context of contemporary immigration. The work strengthens the case for using documentary film in both social studies teacher education and K-12 classrooms.
