Große Gefühle: Bilder, Musik und Sprache im Film

Children and youth won’t stop watching TV because of critical media education. This age group hates nothing more than following orders when it comes to choosing a TV channel or a programme. Because of that, this text introduces three projects which take an action-oriented and not an analytical approach to the topic of “picture, language and music on screen”. Pupils get the chance to develop their own standards and simultaneously learn to be more aware of other standards. By producing their own soap-opera, by re-dubbing a sequence of a movie or by turning music into video they get the chance to experiment freely with both picture and sound.

Berichterstattung im Fernsehen

Every day, pupils are subject to a whole load of information. TV and radio are still their most popular sources of information – especially so-called “infotainment” shows are watched a lot. The projects described in this text show the pupils how deceptive an apparently “objective” show can be. They learn actively how to use certain images and linguistic styles and how to analyze their effects. The detailed description of the respective lessons offers a lot of background knowledge and gives the instructors the chance to carry out similar projects in their own schools.
