Many educators teach the novel and use the film, but how many know how to use the film to teach film literacy? Teaching film techniques (lighting, symbolism, sound, camera angles) is part of the new Common Core ELA Standards. Join film and media educator Frank W. Baker for this new look at engaging students in film education. During this session we wil explore:
what is the language of film and film literacy?
where does film fit in the CCS?
how can snippets of film clips be used to engage students?
