Experiments with Film in the Classroom.
Impressed with the results of a two-year experiment with film in the art classes of Central Peel Secondary School, the Creative Arts Committee of the Ontario Curriculum Institute designed five experimental projects that used film. The projects were undertaken by the art classes of four secondary schools. Each project, or experiment, was devised to achieve a certain aim. These were: (1) to explore current social problems, (2) to initiate interdisciplinary work, (3) to create ideas related to the immediate environment, (4) to compare different environments, and (5) to produce animated film by camera and non-camera methods. The procedure used in the experiments was to show the film, discuss it, and then go on to a visual expression. Criteria for evaluating results of the experiments were: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. It is hoped that the favorable results of the experiments will inspire similar efforts elsewhere. An appendix contains three suggested units for further use of the screen as a catalyst to creative work in secondary school art. (MF)
