Film in the Language Arts Class. Developments in Classroom Instruction.
In this booklet, the author discusses the ways in which film may be used to extend and enrich the study of literature and explores the rhetoric of film--how it uses visual symbols, similes, and other metaphors to give depth to its content, and how it can broaden characterization and emphasize the symbolic and aesthetic highlights of setting in sequences that last only seconds. Topics of chapters are film and literature, films to extend or compare with works of literature, films as illustrations of literary techniques, and films instead of novels. A list of references, an annotated filmography, and a bibliography are included. (JM)
