Literacy in Focus: interactive ways of working through and with film for Literacy in the classroom


An “On demand” offer to schools/ clusters / groups of peer teachers who can bring six or more along to DCA on a mutually convenient date.

A practical, hands-on session up with resources written by and for teachers, and BFI, that will give you a starter framework for analysing film (the three Cs and three Ss) and lots of engaging activity to try with your class. We will focus on short films, and a trailer to run through a handy ‘screen detectives’ approach, explore writing for different purposes, listening, prediction and reviewing… you can take it away and use in class the next day.

Please book by emailing learning@dca.org.uk.
