I had a lot of great guidance in developing practical materials I can use to run my current courses. I also got to do some vital work for the media literacy class I will teach this year.

I highly recommend this course to any ELA educator! The course offers rich insight into teaching visual literacy; it curates a marriage between literature and film that allows students to dive into their reading experiences with an arsenal of tools they didn't have when exclusively looking at the text. My teaching of literature has become more nuanced and engaging with this course. :)

Another valuable and useful class. I was pleased to find that this course was filled with ideas and lessons that were able to be utilized both immediately and for the future. It's so refreshing to take a course that is relevant to my current teaching assignment. The professor's feedback was timely, useful and encouraging.

Film and Literacy was an excellent course that gave me quite a bit of strategy and material to take to my classroom. It's true: kids love movie time in the Language Arts class, but when the lights go out many students tune out. This course presented numerous strategies to keep kids engaged in their film study. It also shed light for me, personally, on many strategies employed in film making so not only can we as a class analyze plot, setting, character, etc, but also the directorial choices and how they impacted the overall product. Thank you!
