Social-Emotional Learning with Movies

Use ClassHook's movie clips in SEL instruction.

Why movies?

Movies make social-emotional learning (SEL) tangible through relevant and realistic examples.

Many social-emotional learning concepts can be difficult to grasp. Movies bring these concepts to life by presenting them authentically. Dealing with conflict, identifying emotions, and demonstrating social awareness are prevalent in just about every movie.

Save your teachers time

Critical to an effective learning environment is an effective teacher.

In talking with teachers, we found that they are keen to include forms of media in their lesson, but when it can take up to an hour to find the right content, does it become a high priority?

With ClassHook, teachers can find content-specific videos that are appropriate for their students in just a few minutes. This saves them time so that they can focus on student understanding and achievement, not on searching.

More Than SEL

ClassHook's movie clips cover a wide range of topics, from ELA to Health, enabling your teachers to cover other curriculum topics alongside SEL.
