Teachers, this page is for you!
These rich in content, cross-curricular teaching resources have been specifically designed for Key Stage 3 English, History, Art, and WWI studies in general. The resources were written and designed by experienced teacher-trainer, Reading Agency consultant, librarian and resource writer Tricia Kings, and have been test driven in two state secondary schools to date. The 16 page 'MASTER DOCUMENT' is packed full of inspiring, challenging, thought-provoking and fun ideas for classroom activities. The resources include other recommended reading.
The commissioning and production of these resources has been possible thanks to the support of the Arts Council England. They are completely free to download and use. We just ask that you spread the word!
The master document teaching resource available via clicking on the image link below is designed to be used in conjunction with the other supporting materials on this page. All resources on this page are available in downloadable PDF format on the far right sidebar
