A list of web sites means very little! It’s only a beginning and choosing the right sites to read and follow through on can be difficult.  Choose well and you gain, choose badly and you spend some time wondering why you came here!

Look at the links; they are in alphabetical order, but also look at the sites in terms of what they might indicate, i.e. Book Reviews, Historical or Geographical Background, Educational Sites, School Sites, VCE sites, YouTube, MP3, Interviews with Authors, etc.

All can be very useful but much depends on you and your interest(s) and how far you want to take the film.

If you have watched the film, make sure that you take notes on each major scene and then use the links to build your knowledge and vocabulary. Keep noting … there are no shortcuts!
