Your Film Club, Your Way encourages you as teachers, educators or parents to run a school film club in whatever way works best for you and your school. You can run your club as a breakfast, lunch or after-school club. However, a film club does not always have to be an extra-curricular activity, and Your Club Your Way resources support you to work with film and filmmaking as an innovative way to deliver the curriculum during lesson time. A Your Film Club, Your Way: SEN resource is also available.
This resource is to support Into Film Club leaders to design a programme for your members to raise literacy attainment. The notes contain six activities to explore ways of increasing literacy attainment through film. The resource focusses on a short film Ernesto (2013), which is available to borrow from the Into Film catalogue on the British Council Shorts 2013 compilation DVD. However, the activities in the resource can be used with any film. The resource provides one suggested activity to work with the 3Cs and 3Ss.
These activities have been developed by into Film and our partners Bradford Media Literacy Project, the Nerve Creative Learning Centres and the BFI, and have been tried and tested with teachers and students across the UK since 2014. For more training and activities to work with your film club members using the 3Cs and 3Ss framework, take a look at our face-to-face training programme at www.intofilm.org/face-to-face-training or enrol on our online course Teaching Literacy Through Film on the FutureLearn platform www.intofilm.org/online-course.
