Screen Education; Teaching a Critical Approach to Cinema and Television. Reports and Papers on Mass Communications, Number 42.
At the International Meeting on Film and Television Teaching held in Norway in 1962, experts and specialists from 18 countries came together to discuss aims, methods, and means whereby people, especially the young, would be helped to deepen their enjoyment of the cinema and television. The resulting study attempts to fill the need of teachers of film appreciation in different countries. It attempts to assess in what manner, and to what extent, the techniques of teaching a critical approach to television entertainment differ from those already in use for teaching about the film. Several papers prepared for the Meeting are reproduced in part or in full in the appendices. They are concerned with teaching appreciation of films and television, television as an art and as an instrument for communication, with production of screen teaching materials and international exchange of these, with teacher training in this subject area, and with a description of the International Centre of Films (Cinema and Television) for children. A list of materials for education in films and television is appended. A course syllabus is included. (GO)
