A young Scottish Traveller talks about why people are Travellers. He explains what it means to be a Traveller and discusses the advantages and disadvantages. He talks about his experiences of home education, and attitudes that others have towards Travellers.
Prior to watching the clip, ask pupils to record words that they associate with the traveller community; encourage them to use stereotypes. After the clip, ask pupils to revisit the words and record how George breaks down prejudices and stereotypes. Pupils could also be encouraged to list the advantages and disadvantages of being a traveller. These could be turned into a diary entry that relates to a day that George describes. The question, "how am I any different to anyone else" could be used to prompt an organised debate. Using George's information, the class could explain how he is and how he isn't different to each of them.
