Drama in Film and T.V.
The lessons in this 10-day unit for high school sophomores are designed to: (1) acquaint students with terminology related to visual literacy; (2) enable students to make comparisons between drama for the theater and drama for film; (3) acquaint students with the basic structural elements of film such as movement, lighting, sound and music, editing, and composition; and (4) help students become more analytical film viewers. Following a rationale for film and television study in the secondary curriculum, an overview of the unit and the general objectives are given. Each day's lesson plan provides objectives, materials needed, and procedures for teaching which include discussion and worksheets. Lessons require the use of particular films and materials which are identified. The final lesson requires the viewing of a videotaped segment of a television situation-comedy as a test of the students' understanding of the concepts presented in the unit. This document is part of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (JW)
