Film & Language Arts: Strategies for Integration
This workshop will centre on strategies for integrating the study of film into
Language Arts in order to foster language competence in an interdisciplinary
context. The presenter, using examples from DHP Language Arts (which he
developed and implemented in 2005), will examine how film can bridge the divide
between the study of language and study of literature. In the workshop,
participants will learn how to develop a unit of work integrating the study of
film as well as relevant issues and themes stemming from the study of film.
Instructor: Ken Mizusawa is currently the Subject Head of Language Arts and
English Coordinator for the Gifted Education Programme (GEP) at Dunman High
School. He designed and implemented the new Language Arts curriculum with the
launch of the Dunman High Programme (DHP) in 2005, which fosters a student’s
language competence via the interdisciplinary context of film, theatre,
politics, philosophy and literature.
