CfE Es and Os: Social Studies

CfE Experiences and Outcomes

Using film in a range of classroom activities can contribute to wide learning in the curriculum and deliver many Experiences and Outcomes.

Below is a list - by no means exhaustive - of some of the experiences and outcomes you can help deliver in Social Studies through work with film.

Social Studies Es and Os

  • Develop an understanding of the history, heritage and culture of Scotland. Explore and evaluate different types of sources and evidence.
  • Presentation skills - oral, written, multimedia.
  • I can make a personal link to the past by exploring items or images connected with important individuals or special events in my life.
  • By exploring places, investigating artefacts and locating them in time, I have developed an awareness of the ways we remember and preserve Scotland’s history.
  • I can interpret historical evidence from a range of periods to help to build a picture of Scotland’s heritage and my sense of chronology.
  • I can use evidence to recreate the story of a place or individual of local historical interest.
  • I can compare and contrast a society in the past with my own and contribute to a discussion of the similarities and differences.
  • I can evaluate the changes which have taken place in an industry in Scotland’s past and can debate their impact.
  • I have explored how people lived in the past.
  • I can compare aspects of people’s daily lives in the past with my own by using historical evidence.
  • I have experimented with imaginative ways such as modelling and drawing, to represent the world around me, the journeys I make and the different ways I can travel.
  • By comparing the lifestyle and culture of citizens in another country with those of Scotland, I can discuss the similarities and differences.
