STORIES FROM THE INSIDE education resources are free for use in schools
STORIES FROM THE INSIDE is a 30 minute documentary filmed, edited and directed by first time offenders in a maximum security prison in Melbourne. The purpose of the documentary, as expressed by the young inmates who made it, is to stop other young people from making the same mistakes they themselves made.
The documentary is made available for free streaming directly into the classroom via this web site, together with a 10-minute film about the innovative Youth Unit at the prison. The study guide has been written by Australian Teachers of Media, and is provided as a free resource through the support of our philanthropic partners. The film links with English (Life Writing, the audience perspective), Media Studies, Legal Studies, Civics and Citizenship, Psychology and PDHPE.
You can also download the report into youth imprisonment and recidivism, published in November 2014.
