Film Literacy: Grades 10-12: Elective Summer Course
This one-semester elective course offers interested students the opportunity to develop and enhance their understanding of the cinematic medium as an art. Employing the same techniques they have learned in critiquing literature, students will view several classic films for in-depth analysis. Emphasis will stress style, storyline, context (historical), image motif, and overall meaning. In addition, the concepts of character-driven and plot-driven film will be considered. The course examines different movements in films and how cinema is both a comment on and a reflection of its audience. The class opens with a discussion of the static image (photography) toward a look at image sequences toward an in-depth study of moving pictures (film).
