The use of films has a very important place among the alternative teaching tools, which can be used for achieving effective learning by helping to gather students' interest for the learning material. For the effective use of films on history education as an additional tool and avoiding possible harmful effects on students by the misuse, primarily the teachers should be educated for efficiency on the use of films as an educational tool. In this frame, teachers should be able to both reinforce learning and enhance critical thinking skills of their students by additional learning activities carried out before and after the film use.
