Partner Islandwood

  • Film is often seen as a passive learning medium, but it can offer much richer learning opportunities. The Experiencing Film lessons developed at IslandWood take film to a new level with dynamic instructional strategies.

    This video clip highlights the "I Am From" lesson from the Experiencing Film curriculum guide. A teacher leads his mixed 5th-6th grade class through a poetry writing lesson, designed to enhance empathy, with The Red Pines. Students reflect on the lives of the people featured in the film by writing a poem from their perspective.


    You can find additional video clips in the Experiencing Film: An Active Approach video gallery.
