This study presents Colonial Williamsburg’s Electronic Field Trip program as an instrumental case for generating a conceptual model for authentic VFTs that can be used to support the creation and utilization of additional VFTs in the social studies. The findings from this case provide important information for developing successful virtual field trips. In addition, the ensuing VFT model should be helpful for teachers and VFT developers.

This collective case study focuses on two teachers who use documentary film to teach about controversial events. The goal of the study is to better understand teacher selection and use of film as part of pedagogy and the experiences of students who are engaged in deliberative activities with film. In this case, teachers utilized film to help students examine two controversial events in U.S. history. The teachers utilize film as a neutral source for students to use as evidence for taking a position, despite the value-laden perspectives included in the films. Implications for teachers, teacher educators, and especially democratic and social studies education researchers are examined.
