We have recently subscribed to National Film Board’s Campus as a resource for High School. This resource could be used for any age, but I think that many of the films really apply to the high school years.
Campus not only has a great variety of Canadian
films, including documentaries and series, but they also offer teacher guides and lesson plans. This is helpful for following up on the film content and extending learning.
Canadian documentaries are great and the NFB has many available on a wide variety of subjects. There is something about watching "Canadian Films" that really feels like home to me and I think is great for our high school students to understand Canadian culture, politics and current events.
Here is their catalogue of programs. Many of these programs can be found on the NFB site or on
, but I really think that the extra videos and teacher guides are worth the purchase. You-tube
For $29.95 per year, have your students enjoy truly Canadian content from the National Film Board’s Campus subscription.
