OSCARS are Important for Educators because

The 90th Academy Awards are over for another year, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best films of 2017 and took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Here we're discussing that why movie awards are equally important for teachers as well.

Drama as curriculum

The drama has introduced in schools as a curriculum because with the help of this art students will investigate feelings, knowledge and ideas, and in examining relationships between people, in a real, historical or imagined context, to help students understand the world.

Role of Film Festivals & Awards in a classroom

Educators need to introduce this method of learning into classroom & for this purpose at least they should have an idea about the variety of films. Here comes the role of OSCARS as an exceptional study tool. Teachers and parents both will get to know about the variety of films and through these films, they'll have an idea about different kind of landscapes, people, languages, culture and emotions.

Children’s suffering from severe learning difficulties and disabilities who struggle with any kind of academic curriculum can often relate to films. This is also one of the main reasons because of which educators should opt for films but they have to gain a lot of information. Film festivals & Awards are actually a popular medium for that purpose. The Shape of Water, however, won the best film award this year & the whole list of winners is here but we’ve marked some yesteryears blockbusters for our readers.
