Jacob Burns Film Center



The Jacob Burns Film Center is now registering educators in grades 5-10 for professional development workshops this summer on its “Image, Sound, and Story” curriculum.

Image, Sound and Story is a series of hands-on projects that emphasize process, challenge-based learning, collaboration, and reflection. Image, Sound, and Story provides a scaffolded progression to support learners as they develop their visual and aural communication skills.

Each curricular strand has ten projects designed to develop students’ visual literacy through viewing and discussing curated media; completing short activities called View Now Do Nows; capturing and editing images and video; and revising and reflecting on their work. All projects are aligned with Common Core Standards.

Students will:

  • Communicate with the language of visual storytelling and VIEW and CREATE media projects
  • Apply creative, critical, and analytical thinking as they READ, WRITE, SPEAK, LISTEN, and PRESENT
  • Contribute to a classroom culture that is connected by EMPATHY, COLLABORATION, and REFLECTION
