English Teaching and the Moving Image

Synopsis

Andrew Goodwyn's straightforward approach to teaching about the moving image de-mystifies this topic and shows how it can be easily incorporated into classroom practice. The first of its kind, this book builds on teachers' knowledge of teaching about advertising, newspapers and visual adaptations of literary texts, and provides practical advice and guidance on: * Adaptations: not just the film of the book * Teaching film * Teaching television * Practical work * New technologies and the moving audience. This jargon-free book will be a stimulating and useful guide to teachers and student teachers looking to improve their knowledge of the moving image and its recent arrival in secondary school teaching.
