Curriculum Aligned Films & Study Guides
Film Spark collections are selected to initiate meaningful classroom discussions and activities that ultimately lead young people to deepen their understanding of the content and further develop their own voices. We believe strongly in the power of film as a teaching tool to build empathy, unlock new worlds and help kids build a strong sense of self. Please enjoy these free teaching resources, and as always, if you have themes you wish to explore reach out to us as we continue to be a partner to teachers in this unique teaching environment.
