Project

Using Cinemagraphs to Teach Composition and Digital Rhetoric

After completing the Cinemagraphs course in the Creative Classroom Series, I spent some time thinking about how I might be able to use cinemagraphs in a higher education classroom setting. I settled on having students make a cinemagraph and then analyzing and reflecting on their process in writing, paying particular attention to how the design of their cinemagraph addresses concerns of digital rhetoric--especially visual design and audience awareness. This project offers a fun and fairly simple way to introduce students to basic visual design principles while asking them to consider the needs and expectations of an outside audience. While I had a higher ed classroom in mind for this project, I think it could be easily adapted for secondary students. Watch the video here for more informa ...

Lesson Plan

A Lesson in Light Leaks and Tall Tales

In this lesson plan, I tried to incorporate many aspects of this course while keeping it simple enough for my film students to still accomplish in one assignment. As you look through this lesson, you'll notice that certain aspect of this lesson assume certain abilities from my students. This is because we've had class for half the year and they already have certain skills and concepts mastered. If applied to another class, topics of quality sound recording, 3 point lighting, composition, editing, and basic color correction would need to be touched on in addition to my lesson. One of the best parts of film is the ability to be creative in story telling. This is why I'm requiring a tall tale storyline with this assignment. This makes the light leaks lesson exactly what it should be; a phy ...
