Teaching through the Movies
A Skills-Based Workshop for Using Film to Engage High School Students

Join us for an immersive day of learning film analysis tools you can use to engage students in close reading of movies and media.

Inspired by the Museum’s exhibition Activist New York, the media case studies for the program will include Spike Lee’s biopic of Malcolm X (1992) and clips from additional films in the Museum’s galleries. The techniques explored can be applied to a wide range of visual media.

Through exercises and discussions between peers, we will explore how screening films in the classroom and questioning representation on screen can lead to lively, interactive conversations that help students reflect on the history of social activism in the city, engage more critically with media, and understand how filmmakers use strategies to create identification with characters, convey specific emotions, and use visual symbols to shape a complex story.

Eligible participants will receive a CTLE certificate for 5 hours at the conclusion of the workshop.

*Breakfast and lunch included.

Who is this for?

All are welcome! While this workshop series is geared toward educators of grades 6-12, it is open to all.
