If you missed Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" at the cinema, you might be able to catch it at your local school sometime soon.
That's because copies of the movie will be distributed for free to all middle and high schools in the United States, both public and private, as soon as it's made available on DVD, the organization Participant Media announced this week.
Actually, schools will get a special DVD package that includes an "educator's guide" to help teachers develop lesson plans and engage students in discussion about Abraham Lincoln and that time period, a press release said.
The educational outreach is a joint project funded by Participant Media, an entertainment company, along with DreamWorks Pictures and Fox/Newscorp.
"As more and more people began to see the film, we received letters from teachers asking if it could be available in their classrooms," director and producer Steven Spielberg said in a press release. "We realized that the educational value that 'Lincoln' could have was not only for the adult audiences—who have studied his life in history books—but for young students in the classroom as well."
