Jetnikoff, Anita (2003) Expanding our literacy repertoires: Using Film in Senior English Classrooms in Queensland. Australian Screen Education, pp. 78-82.

Abstract

With the new English syllabus’ infusion of cultural studies and contemporary literary and linguistic theories encompassing discourses, the study of film can be much more exciting and conducive to students becoming more cineliterate. This article explores some useful approaches to selected films which can be used in the Senior English classroom in Queensland.
