The use of visual text, such as film, documentary or current affairs program, can play a powerful role in teaching courses where human interaction and motive are central to academic explanation. The place of three such texts, Cajun Country, Jonestown, the Life and Death of Peopleís Temple, and Frontline Diaries, Apartheidís Children in teaching a political science course, is evaluated positively.
