The Language of Film

Goal: Understanding the language of film and some "pre-reading" for our next "text."

The language of film
"Pre-Reading" work

Language of film: 
Just as there are special words for things authors do, there are also special words for things film makers do. This week we will be looking more closely at film, so I'll be teaching you some cinematic language to support that work.

  1. Open your English Journal
  2. I'll be asking you to take some notes and write some ideas while we look at the language of film. 
"Pre-reading" work: 
  • You have gotten very quick with your probable passage gist statements. Can you do it without the graphic organizer? 
  • I'll give you a list of 10 words and you and your partner will use them to write a gist statement about the plot of our next text. 
Read, of course. 
Bring back your articulation card if you still have that. 
Thursday we visit the counseling office.
