  3. 3. Three methods support in-depth analysis of film renditions of novels. VISUAL THINKING MEDIA LITERACY STRATEGIES EDUCATION CRITICAL MEDIA LITERACY
  4. 4. Visual Thinking StrategiesThese strategies were 1) What’s going on withcreated in order to this picture?help students develop 2) What do you see thatand support makes you say that?interpretations of art and 3) What more can you find in there?other visual images(Housen, 2001).

  6. 6. Visual Thinking Strategies • What’s going on with this picture? • What do you see that makes you say that? • What more can you find in there?

  9. 9. Film LanguageJohn Golden (2001) MOST COMMON SHOTS • Medium • Close-up • Long VARIATIONS OF SHOTS • Two-shot • Extreme close-up • Over-the-shoulder-shot • Point-of-view shot
  10. 10. Medium Shot • Most common and natural of framing shots, because humans see each other in relation to personal space issues • Offers viewers some choice, so attention can be called to what is happening around object • Humans are usually shown from waist up • Neutral shot because it does not force viewer to see one object nor does it offer a huge variety of sights to see • Seldom does it generate a “WOW!” like long or close shots can do
  11. 11. The Close-Up Shot – Object or subject takes up 80% of frame, so appears to be large • Can direct viewer’s attention to a detail, like a clue, to a facial expression • Forces viewer to look only at what director intended • Deprives viewer of overall context • Is intimate and revealing, although intrusive and authoritative
  12. 12. Extreme Close-Up Shot• Extreme close-up possess shock value by calling attention to a character’s facial expression and cannot be used often or they lose their potency
  13. 13. The Long Shot – Object is in the distance, if of a person usually the whole body is shown • Can establish the scene • Can show separation • Gives viewer a sense of time and place • Allows viewer choice of where to look since there is so much in frame
  14. 14. Two-Shot • Two people are framed comfortably, a lot like a medium shot
  15. 15. Point of View Shot • Shows a view from the subjects perspective. This shot is usually edited in such a way that it is obvious whose POV it is.
  16. 16. What shots do you notice? • Think about what happens in each scene. • Why do you think the director would choose to film these shots? • How do the specific shots convey or enhance the director’s message?
  17. 17. Critical Media Literacy• recognition of the construction of media and communication as a social process as opposed to accepting texts as isolated neutral or transparent conveyors of information;• some type of semiotic textual analysis that explores the languages, genres, codes, and conventions of the text;• an exploration of the role audiences play in actively negotiating meanings;• problematizing the process of representation to uncover and engage issues of ideology, power, and pleasure;• examination of the production and institutions that motivate and structure the media industries as corporate profit seeking businesses. (Kellner & Share, 2007)
  18. 18. Critical Media LiteracyFilm Version Book Version • “I am!” She tossed me the glass ball. “Just look at her in the glass. Never look at her directly” (Riordan, 2005, p. 182).
  19. 19. Handout, Rationale, Resources, and Questions• According to NCTE’s 21st Century Curriculum and Assessment Framework (2008), there are six components that support a literate person in the 21st Century.• Common Core State Standards suggest sixth through 12th grade students critique and/or analyze film versions of novels and other literature.• There are several online resources that you can introduce your students to in order to get started.
