Objective: I can annotate evidence that supports analysis of Vincent for Cinematic Techniques and Literary Devices to see how inferences drawn from the short film can be written about to improve my own academic writing style (RI1). Agenda:
Entry Task: Of the Burton influences and works we saw last week, which do you like best?
Of the influences we learned about last week, which were most apparent in this short film?
Read the analysis paragraph and annotate with three different colors for Cinematic Techniques/Literary Devices, evidence, and commentary to see how a writer can write about another's style.
Explain what you notice about how the writer writes about another's work.
If time, let Poe, a big influence on Burton, influence your own style by reading an excerpt from The Fall of the House of Usher and then manipulating it to give it your own mood.
Exit Task: Tim Burton has been influenced by a great number of popular writers and illustrators. To really show our understanding of the devices we have been learning and the influences writers and producers can have on one another, we will be watching a film that blends some of these influences. Your choices are Edward Scissorhands (Poe influence), The BFG (Dahl influence), or Alice in Wonderland (Carroll influence). The choice is yours! Mark which movie you prefer on the board on your way out. The film will be implemented as your assessment.
