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.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
