Our topic for the coming term is The Very Important Bear. We will be studying aspects of films and cinema throughout this topic as well as creating our own movies using Windows Moviemaker.
A new site I have come across as part of planning this is Scotland on Screen. This has loads of Scottish Archive footage in it from the Scottish Screen Archive. All of these are freely downloadable and can be freely edited using software such as Moviemaker or iMovie.
The feature resources page has links to footage and ideas for its use in the classroom. The footage accessed from here is thematically linked (childhood, for example) and has ideas for key questions to discuss whilst using the footage.
If you are a teacher in Scotland you can use your GLOW login to access the archive, if you are not on GLOW yet you can still login and use the materials, but I think you have to register first.
