Storyboarding For People Who Can't Draw (Like Me!) : FRIDAY 101 - YouTube

This Week's Videos/Links: Robert Rodriguez - Video Storyboarding: http://youtu.be/P4_2zxaZnRU Intro to Storyboard That: http://youtu.be/PtlmHSPpGkM "Don't" G...
Shereen Zayied's insight:

All three scooped sites are in line with stage 2 and could focus on the following outcomes

EN2 - 2A plans, composes and reviews a range of texts that are more demanding in terms of topic, audience and language.

EN2 - 8B identifies and compares different kinds of texts when reading and viewing and shows an understanding of purpose, audience and subject matter.

EN2 - 11D responds to and composes a range of texts that express viewpoints of the world similar to and different from their own.

Teaching idea:

Through an in depth study of a (wordless or text) picture book and an animated short film they students will explore how visual narratives are constructed. They will engage in interpretation of the settings, events, characters and themes expressed in these texts. Students will also learn some of the visual codes and conventions used by illustrators and filmmakers to communicate their stories and engage with their audience.

 

Description: this scooped site is a video clip that explains the ways any person can build a simple storyboard (hand sketched) and what are storyboards about. This could be used to explain to students on the simple expectations of what they can do as an assigned activity.

 

These resources are suitable for a whole class and small group activity. Visual literacy allows a deeper interaction with texts of all kinds and introduces the process of analytical thinking about representation and meaning. To ensure students succeed in their tasks scaffolds should be included.

Visual literacy and picture story books

Visual literacy andpicture story books
Shereen Zayied's insight:

"Brumberger (2005,p.320) suggests that, “written and oral language must be complimented by proficiency with visual language” ( cited in Ana, 2014), yet many teachers make assumptions that high school students already possess the skills needed to make sense of visual information; this is not always the case.  Explicit visual literacy instruction should happen in all courses that make use of visual texts and resources (Ana, 2014)  "
