Film Archives

Contributor: Eleanor Hannan @EHannan14

Idea: Film archives often digitize some or all of their collections, and are full of intriguing footage on every topic. Find a local or national film archive with a digitized archive and search for your subject, or ask students to find relevant clips for a topic. Use this as the basis of discussion.

Practitioner comments: Some of the most fascinating video clips I have seen have come from searching through film archives. They are great for seeing things in a new way, or getting to know a local area.
