Excellent class. I enjoyed the text that the teacher chose to use and took a lot away from the experience that I will hope to use in my classroom.

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!

This has been one of the most enjoyable online courses I have taken! As a librarian, I don't teach regular classes. But this year I decided to add to each of the four different grade-level books clubs I lead a 'movie month' where we will spend about two weeks of lunchtimes watching a movie that corresponds to a book we are reading. Of all the online classes I have ever taken, I truly feel I have garnered the most 'takeaways' with this class that I can directly apply to student learning. I look forward to using these tools next month!

I cannot say enough about how enlightening this course was. I've always enjoyed using film in the classroom, but this course definitely provided me with a newfound perspective on how to effectively teach it with substance. I look forward to applying all that I've learned to my future lessons by using film and literature as an effective way to engage my students. Highly recommended.

I absolutely loved this course! It has broadened my thinking about film and will certainly enrich my teaching. I enjoyed reading John Golden's vibrant and practical text READING IN THE DARK and will put into practice many of his ideas. (I share his taste in films.) I recommended the text to a former student who will be teaching a film class this fall, and she has already ordered her copy. Thank you to my professor, Elaine Reimer-Paré, whose insightful comments I have valued (for two courses now). I will recommend this class to some of my teaching colleagues. Sharon
