This Applying Editing Principles to Fritz Lang's Metropolis lesson plan also includes:
Youngsters view the silent classic Metropolis as they discuss film history and editing techniques. They develop film literacy skills as they learn to enjoy film in a more complex way. The lesson is intended for elementary learners, but seems more appropriate for those in grade six through twelve. Note: To make the study of film more content rich, incorporate the film's use of storytelling, sequencing, and visual imagery. This will allow learners to see the connection between the visual art of film making and the writing process.
