A museum in Classroom A

November 16, 2016

Young filmmakers spend most of their time creating their own films. However, it’s equally important for them to study the history of their craft.

Instructor Leslie Tye brought a hands-on approach to the study of Film History by transforming her classroom into an interactive “museum” of film history. Each student was assigned to create an “exhibit” about a filmmaker, genre, event or invention from 1930-1965. The resulting presentations were presented on students’ Apple laptops. As soft 1930s jazz wafted through the room, the students moved from station to station, with topics ranging from Alfred Hitchcock to 1930s Hollywood Fashion to Horror Films.
