Think Globally Using Film

Welcome to the Labragirl Film Project’s weekly film literacy discussion. Every Monday morning Labragirl provides a resource, activity, or methodological discussion to help incorporate film analysis into your classroom.

Last week we discussed ways to help students think critically about how they interact with movies. This week the Labragirl Film Project’s classroom resource suggestion is an organization that will help your students gain a global perspective of the world via film.



Classroom Resource Suggestion: Journeys in Film

About Classroom Resource Suggestion: Journeys in Film is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using film to help students think globally. Journeys in Film provides professional development for teachers, has a developed middle school program, and offers lesson plans that will help you to incorporate film into your classroom.

The Labragirl Film Project believes that it is tremendously important for students to gain a global perspective of the world. In fact, helping to foster a global perspective of the world is one of our core missions. We here at the Labragirl Film Project believe that Journeys in Film does an exemplary job of providing products and services to help students think globally through visual storytelling.
