Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focusing on contemporary Italian films, this book offers Italian-language teachers an exciting opportunity to incorporate authentic language in their classrooms. The book is adaptable for any level of language instruction and devotes one chapter to each of ten entertaining movies--among them Cinema Paradiso, La vita e bella, Mediterraneo, and Il Postino. Pre-viewing, viewing, and post-viewing activities appropriate to the various films are included in each chapter. The exercises range in difficulty from elementary to highly sophisticated and are designed to enhance students' vocabulary and cultural awareness as well as oral and written skills. Because the film chapters are arranged chronologically and not in order of increasing difficulty, teachers may place particular films in their syllabi at any stage of language instruction. Drawing on a fine selection of relevant Italian films, this inviting book effectively fosters a deeper understanding of both Italian language and culture.

Synopsis:

Italian Through Film: The Classics is a flexible tool for teachers who strive towards content-based instruction and believe that learning a language should be meaningful and enjoyable. It is based around fifteen classic Italian films which are frequently found in the libraries of many schools and universities, and which can otherwise easily be rented from any video store. It is an adaptable ancillary tool geared towards both high school and college instruction as well as towards adult education. It is comprised of fifteen chapters, one for each of the fifteen selected movies.

The films include: Roma, cittand#224; aperta, Ladri di biciclette, Divorzio alland#8217;italiana, Il Decameron, and Tre fratelli
