Event description

Description

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 will include Sound on/Vision off, Tell Me grids and Role on the Wall.

Each activity is designed to help build on a learner's comprehension, analytical and writing skills.

The afternoon will be a practical session designed to help you to improve curricular learning, assessment and attainment through the use of filmmaking techniques. Step-by-step guidance will be provided on activities including Record and Playback, 5,4,3,2,1 filmmaking with support given on how to use a range of equipment and advice on how to adapt these techniques to suit your classroom environment, specific learners’ needs and assessment objectives.

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.
