Movie Reviews

Interesting, but less so for the classroom
J. B. Turner | Tucson, AZ | 12/12/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Informative and insightful, but my application was for middle school science ecology use. As the problems increase in span and complexity more time is needed for the presentation and explanation.
The first program was easier to break up for classroom use. NG provided lesson plans to facilitate classroom use, for the first set of programs. Apparently the second set doesn't have the classroom support the first did.
I enjoyed previewing the disk at home. Easy to understand for high school or college students with prior knowledge of chemistry and ecological concepts. I am not sure how to break it up into bite size chunks for science7 classroom discussion...yet"
Love this series.., please make more!

"The short vignettes walk the viewer through a given scenario along with one or more scientists working on a specific issue. The videos show good science, that is, science being done properly from the initial question or questions, to conclusions drawn from the available data. This often leads to additional questions, but that is the nature of science. Older kids love these videos! The videos make science more real to them and they get to see the scientific process occurring on topics that are in the news and impacting their lives. I love the way the stories often tie together seemingly unrelated topics, showing how the world is connected and that what's happening in other places can impact us in our little area of earth. I highly recommend both the first and second season of Strange Days and am hoping for more seasons in the future."
