Actions and Detail Panel
Raising Literacy Attainment Through Film (Banff)
Wed 17 May 2017, 16:00 – 18:00 BST
Participants will be introduced to a series of tools including the 3Cs (character, colour, camera) and 3Ss (story, setting, sound), which build teachers' ability to help their learners contextualise and decode film, learning key literacy skills such as inference, deduction and analysis which can be applied to film and other texts. The session includes some practical activities that may include ones such as Sound on/Vision off, Tell Me grids, Role on the Wall, Venn Diagrams and predictive writing, while incorporating the skills of filmmaking through Record and Playback and Shoebox Set Design.
Each activity is designed to help build on a learner's comprehension, analytical and writing skills and includes an opportunity for curriculum-focused filmmaking and extended writing.
Each participant will receive a free downloadable PowerPoint which includes film clips as well the 3Cs and 3Ss dice and worksheet. All materials for this session were created in collaboration with the BFI, Bradford Media Literacy, the Northern Ireland Creative Learning Centres, NATE and our network of specialist practitioners.
There are also many other resources available to download for free from www.intofilm.org/resources
Refreshments will be provided.
