This website aims to bring documentaries into UK secondary schools, raising the profile of documentary film as an educational tool and enriching young people’s nonfiction diet. It has been developed by the BRITDOC Foundation in collaboration with the TES.
The website is free to use, but you need to register first. It features clips from a range of excellent documentary films exploring many different social and global issues.
There are detailed lesson plans accompanying the clips, targetted at English Language and/or Media Studies lessons at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 (ages 11-16+). The following clip explains more about how the project works and the benefits for teachers and students.
