Details and content

This one day course will cover the following –

Exploring the benefits of film for reading and writing.
In this session, Rob will explore a range of still and moving image media, demonstrating their value to the reading and writing process through analysis and questioning.  The session will look at how a director’s choice to portray something can be used by teachers to inspire discussions and hook students in.

Setting a good example.

In this session, Rob will show how film and image can be used to teach writing techniques such as portraying character emotion, building tension and creating atmosphere as well providing a wealth -of content for both fiction and non-fiction writing.

Taking Grammar to the movies.

In this session, participants will experience how film can be used in the teaching of grammar.  Through discussion and demonstration Rob will share useful activities that use film alongside teacher modelling to enhance the teaching of the grammar curriculum and embed it within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking.

Film story scaffolds.
Films tell a story; in this session Rob will demonstrate how the stories told in films can be used as scaffolds to help students create their own narratives.  Rob will explain how films can be broken down into scenes and shots and what role each of these has within the narrative.
