And the loser is . . .

Scenes for the classroom from Oscar-nominated films.

And the award doesn't go to . . .

Finding film scenes to use in the classroom can be a time-consuming business. So why not reduce your workload by concentrating on the best English-language films as determined by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences annually in Los Angeles.

Here is a selection of scenes from films which were nominated for an Oscar in recent years, but lost (in that category). How can we use them in the classroom?

From Bohemian Rhapsody to Green Book: film scenes to motivate, inspire and learn about life.

Shakespeare in Film
Shakespeare in 90 minutes

Using clips from the best movie adaptations of his work from the last 25 years together with successful film references we can trigger a variety of follow-up tasks.

William Shakespeare for the 21st century English-language classroom.

"How Shakespeare would have loved cinema!"

They can be used to trigger a range of skills-based tasks and lessons and add another dimension to the English-language classroom
.
