All the President's Men

My first viewing of All the President's Men is complete, and it lived up to all of the raves that I had ever heard about it. There is no denying the passion that Woodward and Bernstein felt for the craft of investigative journalism. I will definitely be showing this movie to my students in the future. Does anyone have any ideas for ways to include this movie in a specific lesson?

  2. I'd love to use it but I've always avoided it because of all the language. I know one teacher at my school shows ATPM to her history classes, but I'm not sure if she is showing a censored version or what, a bit ironic don't you think?

    What is it rated anyway? I've seen the movie listed as PG on Netlix and R with Amazon.

  3. I had a thought or two. As they kids watch have them notate great examples of reporting techniques.
