Suna Arslan


The study aims to answer the question: “Is it possible to benefit from education-themed films in teacher training policy?” For this purpose, students of the Faculty of Education were placed in film viewing/interpreting groups and were asked to determine the meanings conveyed in the following films: “Hababam Sınıfı,” “Sınav,” “Elephant,” and “Dead Poets Society.”  The findings obtained through content analysis were themed. Results showed that catchy/effective scenes and cues were grouped under the following main themes: Education, family, society, and adolescence. The most intensely-perceived main theme was the messages on the education system. The fact that education took first place and that this was followed by adolescence, society, and family-themed messages shows that the education phenomenon should be discussed with respect to these concepts.
