Newseum offers free resources including interactive activities, videos and lesson plans which are geared mostly for history and journalism but can be tailored to a teacher's lesson. It also includes a page which helps teachers check the content and standard of English.
Docurama offers a wide selection of documentaries - as the title of the site suggests. It has recently come out with an app
And now, if you pardon me, I'm off to watch some movies!
What other sources can you suggest/share for movies and videos that can be used in classrooms?
