Using film in the classroom: Teaching Resources 

Into Film also provides a range of themed and curriculum linked resources which accompany one film or many, giving teachers resources and activities to use in the classroom, linked to specific topics and subjects. For example, linking to the Cententary of the start of World War I, Into Film has produced a whole range of resources based on the film ‘Private Peaceful’, with subject specific links to History, Geography, Citizenship, RE and Science.
