Abstract

Films have been successfully used in the language classroom for more than two decades. In spite of their current wide acceptance by language teachers, teaching through films is still conducted mainly with materials produced by individual teachers, not textbooks. In order to determine the reason, this paper, as a historical study on the use of films in English education, examined how films had been used in senior high school English textbooks. A total of 1444 textbooks used for the past 25 years were surveyed and the results showed that film-based materials first appeared in the early 1980s and made a rapid increase in the early 1990s. Despite the steady increase, the percentage of textbooks which include film-based materials remains low. The findings of the study also revealed a distinct discrepancy between films dealt with in textbooks and films often used in the classroom.
