Hearing is Seeing: Improving Descriptive Writing Through Film

Develop your pupils' descriptive writing skills through this engaging audio description learning sequence. As well as introducing learners to this interesting industry role, pupils will develop their literacy skills and build confidence in reading aloud. These creative activities also help develop empathy, as we invite pupils to consider the experience of a visually impaired cinema audience.

This resource is aimed for use with pupils aged 7-14 and designed for flexible delivery in a variety of contexts: in subject-specific lessons, specific careers lessons, or during an Into Film Club. 

Download this resource to inspire your pupils and help broaden their understanding of future job roles available to them.
