Interpreting Film & Video: Performance Package, Minnesota Profile of Learning.
Minnesota State Dept. of Children, Families, and Learning, St. Paul.
Developed by classroom teachers during the development phase of Minnesota's Graduation Standards, this performance package is made up of locally designed assignments that, taken together, show whether a student has learned and can apply the knowledge and skills related to interpreting and evaluating complex works of music, dance, theater, visual arts, literature, or media arts applying specific criteria that represent an informed opinion or response. It begins with reference to the particular content standard addressed in the package, the educational level of the package (high school); and a summary statement of the content standard. It then describes the tasks associated with the student performances: (1) select a film or video to interpret/analyze; view and reflect on the work; (2) select focus for in-depth interpretation/analysis, formulate research questions, and prepare a project plan; and (3) research the questions, present an interpretation/analysis of the film or video. It then offers specific statements from the standard regarding what students should know and should do, the products, task description, special notes, and feedback checklists for each task enumerated in the package.
