Scots - Back to its roots
A new, free, downloadable resource has been developed for secondary teachers of English who want to develop lessons about the Scots language, its roots and contemporary use.
The Scots Language Centre and Scottish Language Dictionaries, working in collaboration with Scots language education expert Liz Niven, have been supported in the project by the Scottish Arts Council.
Michael Hance, SLC director, said: "We are convinced that teachers will enjoy what Liz has produced and find it a valuable tool in increasing their understanding of this subject. Liz has already circulated the material to members of the education sub-committee of the Scottish Parliament's cross-party group on Scots and received an enthusiastic response from its members."
