Teaching the Teachers

This summer I will be teaching a session at Facets Multimedia’s Summer Film Institute, a unique and intensive week-long film camp for teachers. The topic of my day long seminar is “Hollywood Masterpieces in the Classroom: How to Teach Classic Hollywood Movies”. (This subject is near and dear to my heart as it has become one of my missions in life to turn young people on to classic film.) During the day-long session I will be screening Buster Keaton’s Our Hospitality and Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane as well as clips from various other movies from Hollywood’s golden age and discussing what exactly makes them “classics”. The Film Institute is aimed at high school teachers and affords the opportunity to earn 30 CPDUs although anyone is welcome to attend. My session will occur on Friday, July 29th. More information can be found here.
