Requirements: .PDF reader, 798 KB
Overview: Have you ever had an idea for a book, a movie, or a TV show? Chances are that you ve had many. Today s students, who are coming of age in a world that is increasingly mediated by smartphones, pads, pods, apps, and the Internet, are even more likely to think of their lives and experiences in terms of stories. Unlocking the Moviemaking Mind explores how our innate abilities as storytellers can be used in the K-12 classroom to stimulate new approaches to learning. Relying on data collected during a multi-year research project in a variety of school settings, this book relies on story and synthesis to present tried and true methods of introducing media making practices in the classroom. Unlocking the Moviemaking Mind also offers strategies for overcoming individual and systematic barriers that educators and administrators are likely to encounter when incorporating storytelling into their curricula. Moreover, the book broaches topics that are especially germane to today s students, including literacy, motivation, and experiential learning."
