CPD Workshop: Film in Focus
Like this project (1)
The inclusion of film on the prescribed list of texts is an exciting development in Junior Cycle. This workshop will assist you to build on your students’ film and media literacy skills in a critical and active English classroom. Teachers will have an opportunity to view excerpts from the prescribed list of films, and to explore the language of film as they assist students in developing their personal response to these texts. Collaborative activities will be used to explore film as a ‘multi-modal’ text, and to analyse scenes, themes, characters, and genres.
Film in Focus is offered as part of a day-long programme comprising two workshops (Film in Focus and Young Critics Part 2). The programme runs from 10:30 am-3:30pm. Teachers may sign up to attend at one of the venues below. Alternatively, it is possible to sign up for the IFI half day workshop individually.
