Dates: 10/29/2018 to 6/3/2019

Teams of librarians and classroom teachers in grades 3-8 will work together to learn the basics of film making. Focus will be paid on filming techniques (such as angle, timing, and more) and creating a story with your film. This program will be useful for those who have participated in a previous Maker programs, as well as for newcomers. Participants will begin by spending two days with the Jacob Burns Film Center, taking place in Image, Sound, and Story, a curriculum that prepares teachers to integrate viewing and creating media into their literacy instruction and classroom culture. In turn, students become creators, innovators, and shapers of narrative. This hands-on and interactive workshop in the JBFC’s Media Arts Lab will leave you inspired and equipped to teach through your students’ language: image, sound and story. The third day will be spent developing sustainable ways to incorporate filmmaking into schools and curriculum, with a specific emphasis on using video to promote reading engagement. A 1/2 day in June will be a day for sharing and celebrating our work. Throughout the year, participants will be encouraged to communicate with each other digitally to support each other’s work, answer questions, and share best practices. ($1,200 per team (Librarian and two teachers) For questions regarding this activity, please contact Melissa Iamonico.
