Using Hollywood Movies to teach History in Key Stages 2 and 3.

Introduction

This interactive session with Dr Graham Birrell will explore an often untapped resource for teaching history – the movie. Using lots of clips from well-known films, it will examine why cinema is a great source to investigate the past, but will also promote the need to keep our critical functions about us whilst at the movies! The session is aimed at both primary and secondary school teachers – the content is applicable to both age groups – but parents of pupils from both age groups will also be most welcome to attend.
