Educators' Workshop
Film & Language Arts: Strategies for Integration
The Asian Film Archive cordially invites educators, especially those who teach English, Literature, Visual/Media Communication and Cultural Studies, to attend a two-day workshop that will introduce to them strategic ways to use film in teaching and learning of Language Arts and Literature. More importantly, this workshop aims to shed more light on the variety of ways that films in different contexts can be interpreted and enjoyed.

Course Description: This two-day 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.
