In Narrative in Film and TV: A Teacher's Guide, Eleanor Rehahn explores the variations in narrative structure between different fictional texts. She compares films from different eras (in-depth case studies of Casablanca and When Harry Met Sally), different genres (Star Wars, Sleepy Hollow) and different institutions (Pulp Fiction and Run Lola Run) and examines the many ways in which TV presents fiction to its audience (from ER to The Office), addressing all the major narrative theories along the way.

These Classroom Resources provide materials that outline key theories and ideas, and tasks and activities that encourage students to explore, discuss and analyse key texts, using familiar and accessible texts.
