    Operation Wild – ‘Sick Turtle’ Video
    By Penelope Fisher
    {http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a37/pendulosity/screenshotresourcecrop.jpg}
    This video “Sick Turtle” is a short clip from a Discovery Channel television series called Operation Wild. Due to the fact that is unavailable on YouTube, it is unable to be embedded into this wiki, but by following this link http://planetgreen.discovery.com/videos/operation-wild/ and clicking on the “Sick Turtle” link, the video may be viewed. The video shows the Officers of Florida’s Wildlife racing against time to save a sick Loggerhead Sea Turtle. Each turtle saved helps keep the population of the species from becoming endangered.
    The video supports students as they work towards the English outcome RS2.7 Discusses how writers relate to their readers in different ways, how they create a variety of worlds through language and how they use language to achieve a wide range of purposes (Board of Studies NSW, 2007, p. 33) as the filmmakers have used a variety of visual, written and audio techniques that the students can come to understand through the viewing of the video. The video also has the added benefit of assisting the students through its content which is in line with the HSIE unit of work that they will be working on. Pictures, as well as words, carry meaning, and we live in a semiotic world of ‘signs’, where images and symbols have meaning (Winch, Johnston, March, Ljungdahl, & Holliday, 2006, p. 506). Film has the ability to carry even more meaning than a single picture or phrase as it has the ability to combine many literacies at once, which all carry meaning. Through analysing this video, students will learn to identify a number of different literacies and techniques; all which carry meaning and significance of their own and have a unique purpose. In order to be ‘multiliterate’, children must be involved in viewing, creating and critiquing multimodal texts, which can include spoken, written, visual, aural and interactive aspects (Unsworth, 2001). Powerfully persuasive images and multimedia need to be met with equally powerful tools for discussion, critique and analysis (Callow, 2006, p. 7). By viewing this video, which is not trying to persuade the students in a potentially harmful way, they will be able to develop these skills of discussion, critique and analysis of film, which will set them in good stead for understanding how filmmakers can achieve a range of purposes through their texts, and will help them become aware of how they may be manipulated by this ability in the future, and how films can be powerful instruments of persuasion for good also.

    This resource is related to the English Syllabus outcome“RS2.7 Discusses how writers relate to their readers in different ways, how they create a variety of worlds through language and how they use language to achieve a wide range of purposes” (Board of Studies NSW, 2007, p. 33) as students begin to think about how visual language can be used for different purposes. For example, how film can be used in different ways to achieve a purpose, and how specific purpose can be achieved within the film through different camera angles and shots. Students may not have thought much about different ways that a writer can relate to an audience, or indeed that this could be done through the use of film. Also, students may not have thought about the need for a good visual scaffold before beginning the filming process, and how this can help them to be able to visualise how they want their message to come across to their intended audience. It is helpful for students to think about whose eyes the audience is seeing through, where they are positioned and where the focus is in order for them to make meaning of their own multimodal text (Winch, Johnston, March, Ljungdahl, & Holliday, 2006, p. 521).
    ...
    be explored
    This clip is useful for getting students thinking about the reasons why storyboards are used, and how visual literacy is used in both the storyboards and the multimodal texts that they then create. Particularly this clip helps to explore the visual grammar of camera angles and shots, and their intended meaning for a viewing audience. It is important for students to develop visual literacy as more than simply decoding images, they also need to be able to analyse how meaning is made from the visual in its particular context (Winch et al., 2006, p. 506). This clip aids students on the way to fine tuning this skill through the creation of their own storyboard and film.
