This series consists of  photocopiable resources which are being used widely by teachers of English, Communications, Media and Film Studies. 

Each pack contains a photocopiable Student's Guide and a Teacher's Commentary

In the Student's Guide the film is segmented into units of 10-15 minutes duration. This facilitates work in the normal class period. There is a series of questions for each sequence that guides the viewing of the students and encourages them to keep a personal Response Journal.

The Teacher's Commentary is a well researched separate booklet which covers issues raised in the guide.

Teachers and students have found these guides very helpful in their work on film.

Each pack is priced @ € 40.00, postage free. Titles are shipped on receipt of payment. Delivery is by Standard Post: next-day delivery in Ireland, and 2-10 days for international orders.
 

The C&N Methodology

 

  • Students view the film in its entirety (3/4 class periods)
     
  • The film is divided into about ten sequences of roughly ten minutes duration
     
  • Students read the questions in their notes to guide their viewing
     
  • Students view the film for the second time sequence by sequence
     
  • Classroom work and discussion
  • Written homework can be set on the questions in the notes. This can be built up into a personal response journal
     

A final project can be delivered by compiling these responses and adding chapters on Characterisation, Themes, Imagery, Social Setting etc. or, in the case of the Comparative Study, an essay can be set on a particular mode.
