For Students, Faculty, and Staff: MyU One Stop


Welcome to Families Illustrated

This is a place to find teaching ideas about family life concepts from movies, TV and more.  A search in the database will reveal ideas from professionals that use full length films and film clips, television series and scenes, and even podcasts and music videos to make learning about parents, children, families and the dynamics of their lives and interactions come alive.

Families Illustrated is also your place to contribute your ideas! Share information about the title, audiences for learning and your suggestions for using the media in instruction. Just a few short questions and your idea can be added to the hundreds of ideas already available.
