Musical Storytelling

In this unit, we will look at the ancient art of oral storytelling through the lens of contemporary music. Dylan and Bono, blues and rap, character development and conflict resolution, voice and mood…We’ll listen to, discuss, analyze, and review songs, as well as write and perform our own. We’ll learn and practice techniques that will help us become better storytellers. In the process, we’ll also improve our listening, speaking, writing, and critical thinking skills. So open your ears and lift up your voices, sing me a story and tell me a song!

An Interactive lesson on editing

Explore how editing helps to tell a story in films. Learn words used to describe transitions and time span of scenes. See how the order of scenes and type of transitions can affect the flow, set a mood and keep an audience interested. Look at ways to create feelings such as excitement, humour or fear. For example, a 'fade-in' transition introduces a subject gently and may create a romantic mood. Look at a model sequence of shots in a romance film. Notice how different editing choices change the meaning of a scene. Choose sequences for a comedy or horror film. Choose shots to build a scary feeling or set up a joke. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.
