SHIFT Filmmaking in the Classroom Workshops

The Filmmaking in the Classroom workshops are two-day fully-funded workshops for educators and community youth leaders grades 4-12 interested in incorporating filmmaking and storytelling into instructional content. These hands-on professional development experiences provide 16 hours of in-depth direct instruction to teachers, providing them with an instructional skill set and media rich lesson plans to facilitate the production of content-linked documentaries, public service announcements, instructional videos, and personal narratives. Participants learn the fundamentals of cinematography, work in teams to produce short films, share ideas for classroom planning and integration, and learn how to use the process of filmmaking as an effective learning tool that motivates and inspires students.  Furthermore, educators are trained on equipment and software they have access to in their classroom, including Windows Movie Maker, iMovie, WeVideo, tablets, video & still cameras, and tripods.

Training elements include:
    • Two-day “filmmaking bootcamp” training
    • Comprehensive, standards-linked filmmaking curriculum manual that includes five filmmaking genre units and lesson plans, assessment rubrics, thumb drives containing youth-produced media, instructional videos demonstrating filmmaking concepts, and other additional resources
    • Access to online resources and support
    • Participants are eligible to receive USBE credit upon successful completion of the workshop

Schedule TBA
