 Discover ARTiculation 2017

Discover ARTiculation is a competition for Year 10 and 11 students which aims to encourage the expression of opinions, thoughts and ideas about art with confidence. Entrants are invited to submit (via their school) a 2-3 minute film of themselves speaking about a work of art, an artefact or a piece of architecture of their choice. Judges from the University of Leeds and our partner galleries will view each film, looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential before shortlisting those who go forward as finalists.

Finalists will be invited to speak at  our Articulating Art & Culture Experience Day which will take place at the University of Leeds on Wednesday 12 July 2017. To enter please email Ellie Johnson. The deadline for film entries is Friday 10 March. 

Modern foreign language teacher resources

Classroom aids

We are pleased to introduce a set of new materials for A level teachers of French, German and Spanish. The new resources offer guidance to those teaching film and literature as part of the new A level curricula. We hope these classroom aids will prove useful as schools transition to teaching the new qualifications.

CPD Films

We have developed a collection of films Teaching Foreign Languages to support those who will be delivering the new A levels in French, German and Spanish. Dr Matthew Treherne, Head of the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies introduces the series.

View the collection of films

Transcripts for each of the films are available to download: French Film, French Literature, German Film, German Literature, Spanish Film, Spanish Literature and the Film Series Introduction

Each of our academics have offered advice, notes and suggested texts for teaching literature and film to A level language students.
