Since the mid-nineties C&N media Publications has been producing study guides for teachers in secondary schools. We have published a range of photocopiable resources for use at all levels. In the Junior School these guides can be used by the students to build up a Response Journal that will record their ongoing engagement with a film over a period of time. This approach can be introduced in first year and then developed in studying one of the prescriptive films in second and third year of the new English Syllabus. For the LC we have also prepared comprehensive film study guides which guide students in viewing a film and contain suggestions for re-reading key moments with particular modes in mind.


Film Studies BooksSeán Conlan has a Masters in Communications and Cultural Studies from DCU. He has presented at in-service courses for teachers of English at multiple venues around the country. He served on the panel of trainers that gave the in-service for the Revised Leaving Certificate Syllabus from 1998 - 2001. He took early retirement in 2007 to concentrate on his work in writing and publishing film study guides that would serve as a teaching and learning aid in the classroom. These guides have been well received by teachers throughout the country and abroad, especially in Australia and New Zealand. We have received many orders from there for titles in the photocopiable International Series from teachers who have moved from Ireland after using Sean's material in the Irish educational system.
