This chapter provides an introduction to national identity construction and offers an initial broad thematic analysis of Scottish history, literature and politics, as pertinent theoretical, cultural and administrative backdrops to further appreciate Scottish education policy on studying Scotland in schools. As the Curriculum for Excellence now requires Scottish schools to incorporate Scots Language and Scottish Studies in the classroom, the chapter specifically provides a preliminary study of Education Scotland’s 'Studying Scotland' school resource, with reference to the Scottish Studies Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) award.
