“Tell me” questions


The “Tell me” approach  is a ‘filmtalk’ strategy which involves individuals thinking about films, sharing their ideas with a group, and listening and responding to what others think. It can be used to help students think and talk about any films  that students have viewed.

The “Tell me” approach:

• gives a starting point for thinking, talking about and responding to film texts

• requires students to express their own ideas as well as listen to and consider the thoughts of others

• extends the language students use to talk about film texts

• allows students to compare film texts, express opinions and information that assists their understanding of a film text

• helps students to make film text to self, text to text and text to world connections.
