Raising Literacy Through Scotland's Film Archive

This resource has been produced in partnership with National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive, Queen Margaret University and supported with funding from Screen Scotland.  

Raising Literacy Through Scotland's Film Archive encourages learners to explore and discover the history, heritage, and stories of Scotland at a national, regional, and local level.    

Activities are based on the 75-minute film, From Scotland With Love. This feature film is made entirely of archive footage from Scotland's past. It explores issues of identity, heritage, culture, history and storytelling through archive footage and original music. 

Each set of activities will support progression to a final filmmaking task where learners will have the opportunity to remix archive clips to produce their own films. Educators will become more confident in using film creatively as part of their teaching practice, as well as enabling learners to use film as an expressive medium and to creatively represent their communities. 

This resource includes the Raising Literacy Through Scotland's Film Archive Teachers notes, PowerPoint presentation with embedded archive film content to be used with learners in the classroom, as well as pupil worksheets and a Curriculum Links guide.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
