Four authors with a strong connection to Shetland were selected for inclusion in the education project
. Schools in areas with close ties to these authors were offered the opportunity to get involved and staff and volunteers at the Shetland Museum and Archives developed education packs tailored to each author and school. The packs included biographical information about each author and various tasks to help pupils learn about the work of each writer. The culmination of the activities was a film project at each school where pupils wrote, directed, produced, filmed and edited a film based around each writer and their work.
They created props, artwork, and sound recordings to bring their films to life.The packs are now available online for other schools to use. They are self-contained but if you require further assistance please contact the Lifelong Learning department at Shetland Museum and Archives
