Movies have this incredible way of sparking students’ imaginations while immersing them in complex topics. They offer unique entry points to learning.

With this new, free guide for educators, you can combine the power of movies with ChatGPT and open up avenues for discussion, critical thinking, and creative writing in your classroom!
