Our Middle School Program for Global Understanding 

To be prepared to participate in tomorrow’s global arena, students need an understanding of the world beyond their own borders. Journeys in Film offers innovative and engaging tools to explore other cultures and social issues, beyond the often negative images seen in print, television, and film media. For today’s media centric youth, film is an appropriate and effective teaching tool .Journeys in Film has carefully selected quality films that tell the stories of young people living in locations that may otherwise never be experienced by your students.

Many lessons help students understand their own world as they explore the concepts of family, coming of age, taking responsibility, learning differences, gender roles, and intergenerational conflict and cooperation.

Discover free lesson plans for these films and more in the Journeys in Film Library.
