Short films
Jag är ett stort fan av kortfilmer, likväl som jag alltid tyckt om short stories, dvs noveller istället för romaner. En novell kan ibland på endast cirka tio sidor berätta lika mycket som en roman på 300 sidor. Min favoritförfattare när jag som tonåring började lära mig älska engelska blev Ellen Gilchrist och hennes fascinerade kvinnoporträtt i historier som ofta utspelade sig i amerikanska södern. Fortsatte med henne ett bra tag innan E. Annie Proulx blev en favorit och sedan rullade det på. Kortfilmer påminner naturligtvis om noveller i att de också kan berätta detaljerat om någons liv eller lägga grunden för en helt ny dimension på mycket kort tid. Använder kortfilmer mycket i engelskan, ibland som grund för ett tema, men lika ofta som diskussionsunderlag. Cargo är en favoritfilm för fortsatt diskussion med lite äldre elever: Även denna har gett upphov till bra fortsättningar i klassrummet - och eleverna fick göra sina egna tolkningar och skriva en sammanfattning om den på engelska:
