The issue I want to address in my first teaching cycle is how to guarantee that as many of my students as possible can grow to understand a key'threshold concept' in Film Studies - , genre'. I will be giving a lecture on genre for the third year undergraduate module Studies in Literanj Adaptations. This lecture will fall within the sixth week of a twelve-week module. I want to employ formative assessment techniques during this lecture in order to gauge how well students have already engaged with 'genre' as a key 'threshold concept' (Meyer and Lad 2003; 2005; Land et al. 2005). Basically speaking, a 'threshold concept' can alter the way in which a student thinks about an academic subject.
