English 5-6, 7-8: Film Study and Film Making.
Bolton, Gerre M.
This one-semester English elective course offered in grades 11 and 12 allows students to examine both classical and modern short films to determine the most effective elements of communication in the medium. The course is divided into two quarters and is further divided into topical sections, i.e., Teaching Poetry through Film, The Film as Visual Poetry, Thematic Approach in Teaching Film, How Man Reacts to His Society as Reflected in Film, and Surrealism. Resources for additional information on film are included in sections such as Films Suitable for Units Organized to Theme, Books That Teach Film Language, A Glossary of Film Language, The Animated Film, and The Documentary Film. The second quarter of the course discusses The Characteristics of Film and Student Film Making, The Teacher's Role in Student Film Making, and A Sequence in Teaching Film Making, and describes the equipment required and a method for evaluation of the students' work in the course.
