A resource produced in partnership with Education Scotland, Scottish Book Trust and LGBT Youth Scotland. The activities in this resource are designed to encourage educators and young people to explore Scotland through film, focusing specifically on two central themes: Language and Identity. From classic cinema through to modern day representations of Scotland on film, the resource touches on history, myth, and culture. It also uses film with accompanying Scots language texts, encouraging learners to explore the language in historical and modern contexts. The sections on identity cover many aspects of what it can mean to be Scottish from personal identity, including LGBT, to rural and city living. 

The British Council Shorts 2016 - Primary compilation, which includes Take Your Partners, is available from the Into Film catalogue. To order, or if you require access to a password protected copy of the film online, please contact your Programme Coordinator.

Goireas air a riochdachadh ann an compàirteachas le Foghlam Alba, Urras Leabhraichean na h-Alba agus igridh LGDT na h-Alba. Tha na gnìomhan sa ghoireas seo air an dealbhadh gus luchd-teagasig agus òigridh a bhrosnachadh Alba a rannsachadh tro fhilm, ag amharc gu sònraichte air dà phrìomh theama: Cànan agus Fèin-aithne. O hfilmichean clasaigeach gu riochdan na h-Alba là an-diugh air an sgàilean, tha an goireas a' buntainn ri eachdraidh, ùrsgeul agus cultar. Tha e cuideachd a' cleachdadh film an cois theacsaichean sa Bheurla Ghallta, a' brosnachadh luchd-ionnsachaidh a bhith a' rannsachadh a' chànain ann an coitheacsan sean is ùra. Tha na h-earrannan mu fhèin-aithne a' deiligeadh ri iomadh feartan a tha e a' ciallachadh a bhith nad Albannach, a' toirt a-steach dòighean beatha LGDT, dùthchail agus anns a' bhaile mhòr.
