The In Your Classroom program helps students develop the habits of inquiry and skills of expression to competently apply literacy skills to media and technology. Catering to Utah public school students, these in-classroom interactive presentations are free of charge and can be booked at any time during the school year. This program is made possible by generous support from Professional Outreach Programs in the Schools (POPS), Art Works For Kids, and anonymous private donors.
We take 3rd-12th grade students on a 50-minute journey of storytelling by going in-depth into the behind-the-scenes process of an animated film. A professional animator leads your students through the creative process with specific attention paid to storytelling elements, construction, impact of message, and the collaborative nature of this art form.
Based on your available room capacity, this presentation can be done for groups from a single class to a moderately-sized assembly. Click here to check out our pre-event materials.
Real to Reel is a 75-minute interactive classroom presentation for 4th-6th grades that explores various styles of documentary film. Students will learn to interpret intent, understand how filmmaking techniques affect our perception of the content, and apply criteria to demonstrate how these choices convey meaning to the audience.
This program is designed to be presented to a single class that does not exceed 36 students.
