L'adaptation cinématographique en pédagogie

Abstract : Today, there are more and more successful film adaptations in our cinemas. Pupils are part of the audience seeing these adaptations. Aren't there ways to take advantage of this increased popularity and use them in school in order to motivate pupils? To reply to this question, this master's thesis will try to show how film adaptations are interesting teaching tools at primary school. Interesting pedagogical approaches emerge from reflections about the use of the film adaptation of Joanne Kathleen Rowling’s novels, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The use of the film adaptation of a Christmas story, for example Raymond Briggs’ Snowman, shows its capacity to “enter the world of writing” by making pupils involved in the writing of storytelling. Finally, as a literary work’s twist, film adaptations demonstrate the capacity to develop pupils’ skills in interpretation, in the context of intertextuality. In the case of a parallel work on the original storytelling, film adaptations were found to be an interesting teaching tool in several ways.
