Online Class: Film Appreciation

Course Description

‘Film Appreciation for Modern Audiences’ is intended as a journey through the world of film. It is a sampling of the thought and accumulated critical opinion that forms the basis of the modern stature of 100 years of film-making–as art or culturally important dramatic work.

If you love film, then this course will help you learn more about film analysis, film reviews and discussions, period genres and movements in film style, and more. It will provide you an informed opinion that will hopefully make your enjoyment of the film medium deeper.

This course may be useful for professionals who need to be informed and conversant about the film-industry; for the layman who wants to know as much as he/she can about the world of film for personal enjoyment; or for the student, hoping to become familiar with the ‘lay-of-the-land’ for film-criticism.

  • How you can get real enjoyment from the films you watch, and why you should care
  • Early film-history
  • The process of film-making and how it relates to understanding the films you watch
  • A look at 100 years of film-styles, genres and movements
  • A discussion of film-psychology, and some fascinating aspects of the perception of films
  • A review of ‘films to watch’, taken in 20-year periods starting in 1900, and moving through 2007, featuring all the classics from each era
  • General ideas about film and art-theory as a consumer habit

    Purpose of Program

    This program is designed for students who want to work with children and adolescents experiencing a wide range of academic, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. Common roles and functions of the School Psychologist include psychological assessment, counseling, consultation, crisis intervention, research, and program evaluation. School Psychologists work with students, their families, and school staff in order to help students be as successful as possible in school. The program is designed to provide students the academic and practical training necessary to become licensed as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists. Graduates are eligible to apply for certification as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, which is a nationally-recognized professional certification granted by the National Association of School Psychologists.

    Program Options

    The National Association of School Psychologists and the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists both require master’s and specialist-level programs in School Psychology to include at least 60 hours of coursework, including practicum and internship. These entities also provide very specific courses and domains of competence that must be reflected in the curriculum. The degree requirements and curriculum reflect these standards, which will facilitate the professional accreditation of the program and the licensure of our graduates. The requirements also are consistent with those of other School Psychology programs within the state.

    The Master of Arts in School Psychology is a 66-hour program, and typically requires three to four years to complete. The program includes coursework and field-based experiences related to psychological assessment, intervention, learning, child development, psychopathology, research, statistics, and professional issues. Students also complete a full-time internship in a school setting. Due to the clinical nature of this program and number of hours required, the degree does not have a Thesis option.

    Career Opportunities

    School Psychology has been identified by the U.S. Department of Labor as a specialization that is likely to have faster than average employment growth. In addition, Texas has been identified as a state that will encounter one of the most serious shortages of School Psychologists in the near future. Thus, the job prospects for School Psychologists are very favorable. Minority and bilingual school psychologists are especially needed given the increasing diversity of public schools.

    Job Outlook/Earnings

    ***************

    From Reading Comprehension Worksheet:

    Beware of the monsters
    Who dwell in the mind,
    Who grow in the shelter
    Of shadows they find.

    Beware of the demons
    Who hide from the light,
    Who only survive
    When our spirits lose sight.

    Those creatures can thrive
    Where our knowledge is low;
    They fill in the spaces
    Of what we don t know.

    Beware of the monsters
    That cause us to hate,
    To strike out in anger
    When we can t relate.

    Thanks for the start to the lives that we ve had.
    Thanks for the nights that you went without rest.
    So many memories, most happy, some sad;
    If you weren t perfect, you still passed the test,
    Holding our hands, holding back all the fears.
    Thank you sincerely for all of those years.

    So many hours that you worked to provide
    Multiplied by all the days that we grew,
    When we behaved and the times we defied,
    Never a doubt we could still count on you,
    Making our laughter and drying our tears.
    Thank you sincerely for all of those years.

    Thanks for the rules that we wished were not there.
    Thanks for the wisdom we sometimes denied.
    All the attention and all of the care,
    All the forgiveness and all of the pride,
    Pointing out faults but then calling out cheers.
    Thank you sincerely for all of those years.

    Memories from childhood stay with us forever,
    Taking us where we have been and will go,
    Pieces of life that live on and will never
    Let us forget we were young long ago.

    Sometimes I wander back into those shadows,
    Quietly being who I used to be,
    Bringing to life all the joys and the sorrows,
    Days that can t die while they still live in me.

    Holidays linger and happy times glisten;
    I can see everyone active and well.
    I can still hear them if only I listen,
    Feeling each motion and breathing each smell.

    Life has such treasures that time s always stealing;
    Nothing can ever entirely stay.
    While you are young, you can capture each feeling;
    Make all the memories you can every day.

    Teaching Degrees in Illinois

    The most important step in earning an Illinois teaching license is getting a degree. However, the level and subject matter of the degree dictates other aspects of Illinois teacher certification, like whether or not prospective teachers can seek traditional or alternative certification. Prospective teachers are required to earn their degrees from one of the many accredited teaching schools in Illinois. Some of the best and most reputable schools have specialized programs in Illinois teacher education.

    The four largest schools offering degrees approved for an Illinois teacher license are DePaul University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois State University, and Loyola University Chicago. Each of these schools offers a unique approach to education and can prepare those interested in becoming teachers in different ways.

    The Department of Teacher Education at DePaul University offers degree programs in early childhood education, elementary education, physical education, secondary education, and world language education. Over the course of their studies, students will have to complete case studies, as well as meet student teaching requirements. Students enrolled in these programs are considered pre-majors and, after completing 48 credit hours of course work, are permitted to apply for advanced standing in the major.

Similarly, one in eight Illinois public school teachers earn their degrees from ISU.
