Session B - Reading Movies: Using Film to Teach Literary Techniques

I liked the idea of this one, but it was not so much a how-to as a how-it-was-done. The presenter showed connections between film and literature and then said, "see the parallels between them?" Um. Yeah. Maybe if I'd stayed longer he would've gone into how to look for the connections, but after about 20 minutes I was quite frustrated. When one of my journalism students called to ask a formatting question, I was glad of the excuse to duck out.
