films and video texts i've taught

It probably shouldn't have come as a surprise, but I didn't expect to see that I have taught so many films and video texts, compared to written ones -- especially since I was never trained to do them. I began teaching film before DVDs and even VCRs, when I had to order 16mm reels from New Yorker Films. For what it's worth, I never showed films in class -- class time was reserved for discussion.
