The presentation at the NCTE 2013 Annual Convention went very well and it was a great pleasure to serve on this panel with Frank Baker and Bill Kist. It was quite fun to have been able to discuss “Film: A 21st Century Common Core Literacy” with a packed room of educators early on Saturday morning!
Here is a file that reviews the PowerPoint I put together for my talk: NCTE Conference 2013. In addition, here is a document that I shared: a unit plan for the study of The Odyssey with the film O Brother Where Art Thou? by the Coen Brothers: Moving Images Critical Notebook 1d Casinghino.
