Film: The World Will Just Fall Into Place.
Barley, Steven D.
Some student activities using still and motion pictures in class work are described. In elementary grades, pupils brought in family photographs to illustrate concepts like "family" and "friendship" and then wrote stories centering around the pictures for their classmates to read. They made movies illustrating concepts like "light." When students shot sequences of their film in order, it taught them to plan ahead using storyboards and also saved expensive editing equipment. By using their imaginations, students achieved zoom and fade-in effects, among others, with only simple cameras. Teachers found films and photographs to augment their lesson plans. Films made by ghetto students made real for suburban children experiences they have never had. With imagination, teachers have used commercial media packages serve ends for which they were not originally intended. (JK)
