Hearing is Seeing - improve descriptive writing with film

Hearing is Seeing - improve descriptive writing with film

Into Film’s series of Industry Visits, which brings film industry talent into schools across the UK, saw Veronika Hyks, Head of Audio Description at BTI Studios, visiting young people at Lent Rise Primary School in Slough. Audio description (AD) is the verbal description of film images to support the experience of visually impaired audiences. Creating AD narratives provides a wonderful opportunity for descriptive writing in the classroom or as part of an Into Film Club. Using literacy techniques during a practical workshop, Veronika encouraged the children at Lent Primary to encourage them to write their own descriptions, using a clip from Disney’s Frozen. Keeping their eyes closed, the children were asked to listen to the dialogue and sounds used in the clip, and imagined what the experience might be like to someone who is visually impaired. They then had a go at writing their own audio descriptions, using descriptive words and thinking about how tense could be used. Veronika tasked the children with reading their own descriptions out loud alongside the clip, helping them to think about rhythm and pace, and using the sounds and dialogue to bring the clip to life. Watch the video above to see how they got on, and to hear Veronika discuss audio-description in her own words.

Greek Mythology Curriculum for High School

Greek Mythology Curriculum for High School

Looking for a Greek mythology unit for an older audience? Take those beloved mythological stories and ramp them up with this MASSIVE bundle that includes SIX WEEKS OF COMPLETE LESSON MATERIALS designed for advanced middle school students and high school freshmen/sophomores as they connect their studies of Greek mythology to our modern world and their own lives. This is a six unit curriculum study on mythology. With instructional pacing, all lesson plans and supplements (minus materials such as videos and such), and a general database for English classroom use, this will span 84 days of instruction. Textbooks not included. This unit will introduce students to the structure and purpose of myths in society. As students become familiar with the enduring patterns and motifs found in mythology, they will gain a greater appreciation for the continuity and tradition of our literary heritage as a reflection of the collective experiences of humankind to make meaning and explain the world around us. The big ideas embedded through this unit are: • Whether passed down orally or retold in a literary format, myths follow identifiable patterns and contain common motifs. • Myths are stories which provide an understanding of the world around us. • Myths straddle the line between folklore, religion, fiction, and science. • The purpose of myths is to explain the unexplainable, to amuse, to unite, and to educate. Included in this 9-12 Mythology Curriculum are essential questions, acquired knowledge, acquired skills, major assessments, instructional materials list and where to obtain, interdisciplinary connections, technology connections, accommodations and modifications. Unit 1: Mythic Meaning, Structure and Creation (Pacing – 8 Days) 1 Unit Benchmark Assessment 4 Unit 2: The Classical Tradition as a Reflection of Society (Pacing – 18 Days) 5 Unit Benchmark Assessment 8 Unit 3: The Hero’s Journey (Pacing – 18 Days) 9 Unit Benchmark Assessment 12 Unit 4: Epic Literature (Pacing – 10 Days) 13 Unit Benchmark Assessment 16 Unit 5: Comparative Mythology (Pacing – 12 Days) 17 Unit Benchmark Assessment 20 Unit 6: Mythology Applied: The Art of Allusion (Pacing – 18 Days) 22 Unit Benchmark Assessment 25 Appendix A: General Databases for English Classroom Use 26 Extra pages include a comic strip template, graphics, writing prompt, rubric, persuasive essay paper, handouts and more! ***I’ve also included my Persuasive Writing Bundle.
