Created as a short course to fit into your busy school schedule, Developing Speaking and Listening Through Sound explores how film can inspire active listening and focused discussion in your classroom.
This course is packed with engaging ideas to enhance those fundamental speaking and listening skills that underpin all learning. You’ll also discover activities to supercharge your pupils’ descriptive writing by putting them in the role of a sound effects artist or audio describer.
We’ll guide you through the simple steps to deliver these activities in class and give you the chance to develop your confidence by trying them out as you learn. Along the way, you’ll be able to share your ideas with fellow educators and get access to beautiful short films and downloadable lesson resources that will give you everything you need to get started with your pupils.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
Analyse film as a text to develop pupils’ speaking and listening skills
Develop prediction and comprehension skills in pupils, using short film highlights
Inspire descriptive writing through film sound
Deliver simple film activities to assess pupils’ understanding.
