Mission Statement:

Journeys in Film was founded in 2003 to broaden global learning through the powerful combination of age-appropriate films from around the world and interdisciplinary classroom materials designed to develop 21st century academic skills.

Primary Programs:

There are currently five films in use with corresponding standards-based curricula, developed by Journeys’ top-rated educators for middle and high school students. Plans to expand the catalog of films, in order to provide a more comprehensive world view, are under way.

Journeys curricular materials provide innovative lessons that foster deeper learning with real-life connections at the familial, community, national and international levels. Journeys’ inter-disciplinary teachers’ guides include lesson plans and extension activities in science, math, language arts, social studies, arts, critical thinking, media literacy and culture.

Professional Development for teachers is strongly suggested. Our workshops use dynamic trainers, engaging foreign-language films and interactive hands-on activities to inspire educators, school administrators, parents and community members to use this innovative program, ultimately capturing the imagination and curiosity of students. Workshop content explores the films and our lesson plans in science, math, social studies, language arts, media literacy, leadership / conflict resolution, cross-cultural understanding and the arts. The approach used in Journeys in Film materials is designed to bring teachers from many disciplines together to explore culture and to extend their knowledge of the world's youth. Workshops can be designed for specific discipline areas, after-school and summer-school programs.
