Inspiring sports films

13 Dec

This year my Year 9 classes viewed the film Remember the Titans as a way in to examining and understanding ‘inspirational’  texts and speeches.

Next year, I would like to branch out a bit and either show Remember the Titans alongside another sports film, or to replace Remember the Titans with something that the kids may not have seen yet.  So far, in contention, I have Cool Runnings and The Blind Side.  

Depending on the ability levels in my class, I hope to be able to run a comparative unit or one which looks at sports films as a genre.
