3Cs and 3Ss Literacy Tool

3Cs and 3Ss Literacy Tool

The 3Cs (Colour, Camera, Character) and the 3Ss, (Story, Setting, Sound) can be used to help students discuss and analyse all the elements of a film text. Working with the 3Cs and 3Ss enables students to make connections between the features of all texts, and develop their decoding, encoding, reading and writing skills. After viewing a film sequence, just roll the dice and ask your students one of the corresponding questions. Students can become skilled at leading this activity for themselves as a starter activity or plenary for film text analysis.

Mindfulness Through Film

Mindfulness Through Film

This resource launches to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week (8-14 May 2017) and has been produced in partnership with Mental Health Foundation. Half of all mental health problems start before the age of 14, and so addressing mental health concerns has never been more at the forefront of the minds of the government, the media and the education sector. Teachers now play a vital role in strengthening the mental health of their young people, but are often not sure how to incorporate this topic into an already jam-packed teaching timetable. Mindfulness Through Film guides teachers and their learners through a series of popular mindfulness activities, such as raising sensory awareness, mindful colouring and walking. It has at its heart a collection of clips from feature and youth-made films, and culminates in a simple filmmaking task. The resource has been developed for young people approaching changing or challenging circumstances, such as exams and transitioning from primary to secondary school, but is suitable across Key Stages 2 and 3, and Second, Third and Fourth Level. The activities link to PSHE curricula and provide an introduction to mindfulness. Not yet Into Film? Start your free Into Film Club at www.intofilm.org/clubs
