The way in which the story is put together, and how the sequence you are analysing moves the story along.
How the images are put together - lighting, camera angles, shot composition, editing, any special effects
The thinking behind the images - how settings (location, colour), characters, costumes, props etc (the re-presentation of reality) create meaning
The way in which sound adds to the images through dialogue, music and sound effects.
There is a wonderful range of resources available online for teaching this Module B text but I have found that students still struggle to articulate their knowledge and understanding of the prescribed poems for Close Study. Many students demonstrate a strong knowledge of key ideas and can comment well on the techniques used and their impact on the reader. What is often missing however is a real grasp of what makes his poetry "distinctive'. This module, like most of the others for both courses, remains fixed on language as a communicative tool. Students have to develop a real understanding for 'why' he felt compelled to expose the 'pity' of war in all its horror. Comprehension of his professed purpose as a poet of war is needed; students able to express why it is that Owen's mastery of explicit diction and sensory imagery and anti-war voice remains distinctively strident so many years after it was written.
