These notes are provided for tutors who wish to/need
to offer a structured course that involves the awarding of marks
or points. ]
The course is based on the critical viewing of
selected British films (at least 5).
All selected British films are centred around a certain type of
cultural clash (ethnic, generation, social, economic, family etc).
Working on a film involves the following stages: a/ pre-viewing
- Internet-search of film-related information, b/ while-viewing
- focused observation of culture-related issues (including language),
c/ post-viewing - writing a structured film-review to firstname.lastname@example.org
after taking part in the discussion on line.
A structured film review is expected to include: a/brief information
about the film background, director and cast, b/ summary of the
film content, c/ the source of conflict, suspense, and/or dynamism
in the film, d/social issues raised in the film, e/elements of entertainment
in the film, f/reflections on the on-line discussion of this film,
g/conclusive individual viewpoint on the film.
Each film earns you 4 credits towards the 20 credits for the whole
course (accreditation system may vary from University to University).
The course does not issue certificates to non-University students
but they are welcome to join in.
