For several years a difference of methods has existed regarding the relative effectiveness of when orientation for a film should be given as to motivation for learning. The many procedures and practices, as evident now, have been based on limited observation and very little experimental evidence to support or justify their continued use.

It is the purpose of this study to show the teaching procedures used with the motion picture as a teaching aid in certain situations for vocational agriculture students in six Anderson County, Texas high schools. A further purpose is to show the learning rate of students as revealed through tests and questionnaires and to outline practices which should be used with motion picture films, thereby, enhancing learning through problem solving with the proper motivation.
