This teaching model of shot sequences in editing can be used in two ways: 1. In TV /film production courses, students can apply it to analyze existing TV programs, films, and commercials to study the process of editing. 2. While writing scripts and preparing story-boards, or during post production, students can incorporate elements from the model into their class projects. This editing model also has obvious applications within the study of other existing visual media, such as TV, film, and slide presentations. In addition, the Outcome Model can be applied in developing dialogue for plays, scripts, and fiction. Such a model can be used in writing radio and television commercials. Most surprisingly, it works in learning to write poetry. Its teaching effectiveness, however d e p ends on the teacher's use o f the structure to challenge students to think; to invite them into the exciting possibilities that lie waiting in the processes of video/film making and creative writing.
