Film and visual media are recognised as powerful tools to motivate pupils and support the critical faculties. As teachers we need to consider how best to utilise this critical awareness to support writing development, as the impact can be outstanding.
This course will support teachers in developing their own subject knowledge of film, their understanding of the best pedagogical approaches to working with film and how best to structure corresponding units of work in order to produce outstanding writing outcomes.

A thorough understanding of Visual Literacy and the related research findings
