Topic: Suggested Sequence in Film Study

Ten-Second Review: View, respond and discuss.

Title: “The Necessary Balance in the Teaching of Film.” Gordon Morrell Pradl. English Journal (October 1974), 52-57. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Quote: “…sequence of study in which students are first invited to respond to film as freely and as intensely as possible, to share their responses and to test them in relation to the film that stimulated them, and to see how their perceptions and feelings parallel or diverge from the perceptions and feelings of others.” p. 56.

Comment: A good sequence of activities for literature also. RayS.
