Teaching Trailers – resources from Film Education



Teaching Trailers is a fantastic resource from Film Education. Film Education provides award-winning teaching resources, teacher training and cinema based events which support the use of film within the curriculum.

A trailer is a taster of a film in its entirety, and as such can be an extremely useful teaching tool for helping young people gain a better understanding of persuasive language, narrative and genre. Each term, a new set of trailers is made available by Film Education for use in the classroom with accompanying lesson plans, ideas on integrating the resource into your literacy and ICT planning, background information on the trailer and online interactive content. Resources are available for both primary and secondary pupils. Sign up for Film Education’s mailing list and you will receive the free Teaching Trailers (Primary or Secondary) CD-ROM each time a new resource is released.
