Example text

Certainly it is worth reiterating that there has been a relatively recent renaissance in relation to ®lm and education. The British Film Institute (BFI), having been a very powerful advocate, since the inception of the National Curriculum in 1989, for the very broad-based notion of Media Education, in the late 1990s took a much more focused role about the moving image generally, but giving chief importance to ®lm; a return, some might argue, to its proper roots. The publication by the BFI in 1999 of Making Movies Teaching film 45 Matter is a key moment, followed up in 2000 by Moving Images in the Classroom.

In schools, at present, English teachers are faced with a dilemma: teaching either nineteenth- or twenty-®rst-century literacy. In the new model, literature will continue to play a crucial part but not the crucial part. For many of our future pupils, the greatest textual experiences will come from a whole range of media. Books will play their signi®cant part. Pupils' initial contact with many longlived and well-loved stories will come through an adapted form.
