Do you know what it sounds like when doves cry?

Faculty at Highline are developing courses that intentionally incorporate information and visual literacy as a key part of their curriculum. The Faculty Toolkit has a new page dedicated to showcasing these courses. Courses can be added to this page by contacting the Highline library reference department.

The debut course on this page is Tommy Kim’s new Film Studies 107, a late start class beginning 10/30/07. Announcement below:

Do you know what it sounds like when doves cry? Do you want to know? Maybe your students would be interested in knowing.

Well, FILM STUDIES 107 certainly won’t give them any answers but it will give them a way to start thinking about the answers.

This quarter, we will investigate the function of sound in cinema and how we use sound to help us visualize. More information can be found on my homepage (

FS 107 is a late-start, two-credit class (that begins next week – 10/30). We meet twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1:20-2:50.

Please let your students, especially those who need two credits to maintain full-time status, know about this course.
