Download our new resource - Scottish identity and voice through film

12th August, 2014

We've created two new teaching resources to help young people discuss Scottish identity and voice in the classroom.

Identity and Voice: Citizenship through Film engages children and young people with themes of identity and political representation. Tied in with Scotland's Curriculum for Excellence, Identity and Voice also seeks to prompt consideration of what Scottish identity might mean to different people, how it might be constructed and expressed, as well as how it is represented and seen by others. 

Through the film choices offered and the accompanying creative tasks, students will go on a journey through film, exploring and reflecting on the nature of personal identity and Scottish community, as well as further ideas surrounding democracy and campaigning. 

Teachers' notes and PowerPoint

Coming with Teachers' notes and PowerPoint presentations for both Primary and Secondary teachers, our resources provide lesson and discussion ideas that allow you to cater for your classroom. Use our cross curricular project and thematic approach ideas to structure lessons on topics involving global citizenship, before taking students through our creative PowerPoint presentation and creative supporting worksheets as they engage with key themes of citizenship, identity, democracy and debate, ahead of the referendum.

New Scottish topics 

To coincide with our recent Into Film launch in Scotland, we've created three new film topics highlighting the wealth of Scottish contribution to the world of cinema. Be it as an onscreen setting, or through its talented filmmaking professionals, Scotland has possessed a unique and positive impact on motion pictures and our three new topics reflect the best of Scotland's influence.

The Illusionist Scotland on film takes a look at some of the best and most varied portrayals of Scotland on cinema. Click here for Primary clubs, or here for Secondary.
