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.
