Developed as a result of six years of research between Into Film and its partners, Teaching Literacy Through Film harnesses the power of film to make a lasting impact on your pupils’ literacy skills.

 

Designed as a series of short learning experiences that can fit around your busy school schedule, each module will introduce simple strategies to inspire your learners and improve speaking and listening, comprehension and writing attainment for all pupils.

 

Dive into the modules that match your current classroom needs or follow the entire learning journey with us. You’ll have the chance to complete fun literacy activities, get advice from Into Film Experts and share your experiences with fellow educators on the course. Each module contains the added bonus of downloadable, easy-to-use, curriculum-linked resources to engage your learners in the classroom.
