Exploring Cinematic Narratives Featuring Child Protagonists
de Ericka Knudson e David Campos
Sobre o livro
With the aim to help teachers design and deliver instruction around world films featuring child protagonists,Cultivating Creativity through World Filmsguides readers to understand the importance of fostering creativity in the lives of youth. It is expected that by teaching students about world films through the eyes of characters that resemble them, they will gain insight into cultures that might be otherwise unknown to them and learn to analyze what they see. Teachers can use these films to examine and reflect on differences and commonalities rooted in culture, social class, gender, language, religion, etc., through guided questions for class discussion.
The framework of this book is conceived to help teachers develop students’ ability to evaluate, analyze, synthesize and interpret. The proposed activities seek to incite reflection and creativity in students, and can be used as a model for teachers in designing future lessons on other films.
