Makers and Users of Knowledge: Literary Re-Creation in the Classroom.
Gardner, Peter S.
Journal of Teaching Writing, v11 n1 p19-33 Spr-Sum 1992
Discusses an alternative to the conventional close reading of a literary work in which students take on the role of any member of a film crew (director, screenwriter, filmscorer, etc.) and communicate how the scene would best be transferred to the screen. Notes that the activity cultivates critical analysis and serves as a springboard for personal expression. (RS)
