connections-dscn0307

Every Scottish secondary school was supplied with a free film-based educational resource in the run-up to Human Rights Day last month, as part of an initiative to help children develop a greater understanding of the issues around the subject. Learning Through Film: Human Rights in Scotland is based on the BBC broadcast The New Ten Commandments and was co-produced by the Scottish Documentary Institute. The 10-minute documentary films and corresponding 40-minute workshops, designed mainly for S4 to S6 students, explore 10 wide-ranging human rights. Each workshop was created to be completed within a single lesson and to be integrated into existing subject areas of the Scottish national curriculum. The project was supported by Creative Scotland.
