Films and Feelings.
Gaffney, Maureen, Ed.
Young Viewers Magazine, v4 n2 Spr 1981
Children's emotional responses to films are the focus of the four articles in this issue designed for media specialists and educators. Following an editorial discussing the responsibilities of media as put forth by Bruno Bettleheim, the first article presents a methodology and rationale for using story films to encourage children's exploration of their feelings. An annotated film bibliography is included. The second article presents a Media Center for Children film and activity session illustrating the following techniques for using films with children: a scaffolding introduction, talking aloud during the screening, and post-film discussions. The use of media as a means of bringing feelings into the classroom is the topic of the third article. Several books which can form a foundation for this new approach to media in education are described. This issue concludes with a review supplement of seven films ranging from pure cinema to nature study documentary. (LP)
