Helping Educators Teach With & About Film
Resources, Readings and Recommendations
Created by Frank W. Baker/Media Literacy Clearinghouse

“Teaching students how to interpret and create visual texts such as…film…is another essential component of  the English Language Arts curriculum.”  (NCTE)

“If people aren’t taught the language of sound and images, shouldn’t they be considered as illiterate as if they left college without being able to read or write?”  George Lucas, film director

“We live in a world of moving image – it contributes greatly to the way we make sense of and engage with the world. This is fundamentally why moving image  education has a vital role to play within a holistic approach to learning in the 21st century.”   Peter Edwards, chairman of the Film Agency for Wales
