Reel Reading: Film and Literacy
Engage your students with visual and printed texts by bringing the big screen into your classroom. This online, standards-based course invites teachers to discover how 'reading' films strengthens the analytical and critical thinking skills of their students. Visual texts, such as film, offer an innovative way to help students 'see' literary structures and reading strategies in action. As students recognize the connections between film and printed text, they will become more confident in their ability to appreciate, understand and analyze literary texts. This course may be completed with or without students.
