LAKE WALES – United Nations educator and filmmaker Roberta Seret visited Lake Wales High during Monday’s teacher work day to share ideas and teaching strategies for motivating and inspiring students with film.
Seret spent most of the morning talking with high school teachers about ways to incorporate feature films, including foreign films, into a wide range of subjects and disciplines. She shared one of her “FilmEd” lessons, which included part of a movie along with related instruction on geography, science, politics and other topics.
Seret teaches English language, literature and business to diplomats at the United Nations. She also is the president and founder of International Cinema Education at the UN. For several years, she has worked with high school students on a range of projects, including an international film festival, and a film-making course.
