              Teen movies' have been massively popular with their target audience for half a century yet they remain among the most unexamined, in large part due to their unpretentiousness, but also because the genre itself is contested just what is a 'teen movie'? In his Classroom Resources a...uthor Rob McInnes explores the social, institutional, economic, cultural and political contexts of the genre from the 1950s to the present day from Rebel Without a Cause (1955) to American Pie (1999) which reflects recent Media/Film Studies specifications to study genres as part of a more integrated study of cultural theories and movements. These Resources reflect the structure of the accompanying Teacher's Guide and provide accessible exercises and tasks for this most student-friendly of topics.

              What an impressive pack! This Teacher's Guide is comprehensive, rigorously underpinned with theoretical perspectives and informed debate, and extensively illustrated with detailed textual examples. Well-conceived, researched, and designed, this will be a valuable and much-used re...source. --Jenny Grahame, English and Media Centre, LondonThe action/adventure is the dominant genre of American cinema and has been for close to three decades. Yet despite being wildly popular with its target audience, action/adventure is, at best, critically neglected and, at worst, dismissed as a giveaway to undiscerning viewers. In this new edition of the acclaimed Teacher's Guide and Classroom Resources, Rob McInnes returns with his vivid engagement of the topic, going into even greater depth than other available resources. His text now references films released in the past twelve months and opens with a reassessment of traditional approaches to teaching the genre. The Teacher's Guide reviews action/adventure narrative, formal conventions, issues of representation, institutional practices, and critical debates, especially those relating to propaganda and censorship. The accompanying Classroom Resources provides photocopiable sheets for teaching the topic and covers key theoretical issues plus guidelines for practical tasks, such as storyboarding, producing a film trailer, and designing a movie poster. The pack also includes an extensive glossary.
