Bring the cinema in the classroom with Film Education

Film Education is a charity backed up by the UK Film Industry whose aim is to foster the use of films as part of the curriculum. They have set a website where teachers of any subject can find resources to work with their students. Not only do they offer ordinary comprehension exercises or lesson plans on Social Studies, Art and Literature or English, but also they go a step further with more creative activities such us script writing or scene creation. For ESL/EFL students, it is also an opportunity to recreate scenes of the films and practice rhythm and pronunciation.  It sounds good and it is real. Among the site’s supporters we find Lord Attenborough or Mark Herman, Director of The Boy in Striped Pyjamas, do you need any more reasons to try it out?
