Beyond adaptation : using film to enchance the teaching of literature in the secondary English language arts classroom Bazilewich, Andrew


In this paper, I will argue that the use of film in the English classroom can (and should) go beyond the showing of movies adapted from literature studied in the classroom, and instead focus on the many thematic connections-both broad and focused-between literature and film. I will begin by presenting a brief justification for the use of film in the English classroom, followed by a review of the literature-both theoretical and practical-focused on the use of film in the English classroom. I will conclude with examples from both my own practice, as well as that of my colleagues, of how film can be used on a thematic level in the teaching of literature.
