Reviews for Reading Films:
'Well organised and thoughtful, Reading Films offers informative notes for teachers ... Everywhere there are intelligent, probing questions and tasks' Laurence Astler, TES
'... [T]he book contains a wealth of information which, if nothing else, will make those who study it watch films in quite a different way in future. A very interesting resource.' Catherine Spalding, School Librarian.
Moving Image Media in English is a new series designed to support the moving image requirement in the National Curriculum for English at Key Stages 3 and 4. Reading Films introduces films and television programmes as media texts that use specific techniques and presentational devices to produce meaning. The guide explores how these techniques are used to develop visual and aural narratives for specific audiences, provides a useful introduction to film language and guidelines for analysing film narrative. It includes a series of case studies which compare and analyse a selection of films and television centring on young people, including Clueless, Pleasantville, Pretty in Pink, Kes and TV soaps. It includes clear teaching notes, student information sheets and student activity sheets.
