Welcome to Secondary English! In this first unit, we will explore some elements of stories and see how stories can be presented visually.
Session 1 – Tuning In To Texts!
In this first session, we will watch and analyse a short film to see how essential elements of stories (plot, character, conflict, setting) work together to entertain and move us.
Session 2 – Themes and Symbolism
We take our analysis of films that one step further by considering how concrete objects (symbols) can indicate abstract ideas (themes).
Session 3 – Visualising Stories
We finish our mini-unit by looking at how camera shot types can also help tell a story by creating both meaning and effect.
