Using media in literacy

Using media as a stimulus for Literacy and English is a way of engaging learners. I know that I can spend a lot of time trawling through websites for ‘just the right clip’ to use in my lesson.

The Literacy Shed is an excellent resource which houses many animations, video clips and sound clips which can be used as a stimulus for learning.

My personal favourite is the video below; it is a great way of evoking emotive pieces of writing, and brilliant if you are studying WWII.

Try it out, and let us know what you think. If you know of any other resources which are similar, let us know.
