Journeys in Film

Films have long been overlooked as an educational tool. Films can open our minds, inspire us to learn more, provide a bridge to better understanding major issues of 21st century concern, and compel us to make a difference. When properly used, film can be a powerful educational tool in developing critical thinking skills and exposure to different perspectives. Journeys in Films provides free curriculum guides, lesson plans, and discussion guides to support the use of films as educational tools in your classrooms.
Note: Be sure to follow your school board’s policy about using video (film) in your classroom. Canada’s Fair Dealing Decision Tool will help you evaluate whether you are allowed to use a video resource in your classroom.
