What is Citizenship?
Why teach Citizenship?
Citizenship is one of Scotland's
five National Priorities
Citizenship: to work with parents to teach pupils respect for
self and one another and their interdependence with other members of
their neighbourhood and society and to teach them the duties and responsibilities
of citizenship in a democratic society"
Why use films to teach
Film Institute says that:
"Films are a great source
of enjoyment for many
of us; they can also give us insights into the world beyond our direct
experience and can inspire us, shock us or make us rethink our assumptions
about the world. As such they are potentially an invaluable resource
to use with young people to develop their awareness and understanding
in order for them to become active thinking participants in society."
