Teaching Film

Tuesday, October 5, 2021



Dr. Andrew Owens, University of Iowa
Newberry Teachers' Consortium

This workshop serves as an introduction to using film as a pedagogical tool in the high school classroom, particularly for instructors teaching in the fields of literature, politics, and critical identity studies (i.e., gender, race, sexuality, etc.). Instructors will become acquainted with the vocabulary and analytical skills necessary to train media literate students not only in examining individual films, but more importantly in how students can apply those skills to key historical/cultural settings and theoretical debates. More broadly, our emphasis on media literacy will address how mainstream, independent, and international cinemas have intersected, and continue to intersect, with issues of race, gender, sexuality, national history, globalization, and new media technologies.
