Red Tails

Educational Resource

Designed for students of media, PSHEE and citizenship aged 13-16, the resource focuses on the film’s central theme of racism and the courage of those who challenge it head on. Offering a range of citizenship activities based on the film, these materials provide students with engaging ways to consider the relevance of this story today by exploring ways to share its message in preparation for Black History Month in October.

Media students can view clips from the film in order to identify and evaluate how key conventions establish the action adventure genre. These activities develop students’ skills of close reading and critical analysis whilst the PSHEE and citizenship tasks engage students in thinking about human rights and challenging discrimination.
