Film in the Classroom; Why Use It, How to Use It.
Amelio, Ralph J.
Guiding the student to see for himself and extend his senses so that he is aware of his world, of others, and of himself should be a major goal in film study. This book describes a two semester film study course which was designed to accomplish this goal for high school and college students. The first chapter establishes a rationale for film study, and the next two chapters discuss goals, methods, and course evaluation and the ten components of the film program. Each of the ten units is detailed: film and literature, film language, comedy, the adolescent, the documentary, animation, war and violence, art and fantasy, reality and myth in Westerns, style of director and actor. Each unit gives the time necessary to present the unit, the theme, purpose, films (including film annotation, running time, and sources), readings, and instructional methods and student activities. A final chapter discusses what the course developers learned from the program. Appended are criteria for selecting and recommending students, project cards, film evaluation sheets and project materials, student questionnaires, a film glossary, a bibliography of over 350 titles of books and publications, and the names and addresses of major film distributors.
