Using movies to inspire writing

I have posted before about one of my favourite literacy sites The Literacy Shed which has lots of ideas for using movies to inspire writing.  I recently came across Video Writing Prompts at the Teacher Hub which has an excellent collection of videos which can be used as lesson warm-ups or to promote writing in many ways such as essay writing, reflecting, critical thinking, comparing and questioning – there are many ways to use the videos! Ideas for different writing tasks are given for different year levels.  Videos are undoubtedly a valuable tool to add to engage and motivate young writers.
