I teach high school social studies and have found that old instructional films are fabulous tools for teaching today's kids about yesterdays fears and values. I initally purchased this DVD because I was looking for "Duck and Cover" and "Red Nightmare," but this DVD has more to offer. "The Great Rights" has been invaluable as a review of the Bill of Rights in both my US History and my Criminology classes and, because it involved blacklisted writers and voice actors, it is also useful in discussions of HUAC and McCarthyism. "Are You Ready Emotionally?" -- a film about preparing high school seniors for the Korean Conflict draft -- is not only a good discussion piece, it's 10 minutes of the (unintenionally) funniest acting ever recorded on film. My students love it and it really helps them formulate questions and opinions about the difference between then and now.
