Teaching Films without…The Film!

by Kristie Burk

filmI love, love, love when people share!  That’s why I was so thrilled to get an email from Ellen Resnek, a social studies teacher at DHSE, with a link to an article on MiddleWeb by Frank W. Baker about teaching film literacy without a film.  I loved that she shared, not only because it was an interesting article, but because our blended teachers are currently struggling with not having enough time to show (the only copy) of a DVD during their face-to-face meetings.

This article definitely recommends some clever solutions, such as viewing film stills or analyzing scripts. Check it out and don’t forget to share what you know – that’s how we grow.
