The complete scheme of work for Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry by Mildred D Taylor. I’ve worked through these lessons twice with year 9 groups eight years apart and it is such a fascinating and important historical, semi-biographical narrative which really hits hard in the current climate. Students want to understand the history of black Americans and what is happening currently,. This is the perfect way to educate, inform and to open up discussion of causes and consequences. My top set year 9 class said it was the most important thing they’d ever done in school and that was in 2010. Every lesson for the whole novel with questions for each paragraph, supporting activities and essay planninng support. Nothing to prepare. Buy and teach. And enjoy!

It takes roughly 4 lessons but can be shorted or made longer easily by either skipping out tasks or spending more time on them. It encourages independence and collaboration whilst preparing students for the kind of skills that they will be developing in year 7. The first lesson after discussing what history is and what they have studied looks at artifacts and how they can be used to find out about historical periods or individuals. It also provides opportunity for getting to know the students. This then links into the Titanic with lessons looking at what life was like, why the sinking is so famous and ultimately who/what was to blame.

Custom Books

Custom Books

Custom Books is a resource created for a project with children who were in KS2-KS3. The resource may be useful for local history studies and as a stimulus for children to create their own chap book about a topic of their choosing. The project was awarded National Lottery funding, through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and as part of our agreement we said we would create and share this resource. Context Children became researchers, finding out about the history of The Customs House and chap books. Chap Books were an early type of book made from a folded piece of paper. We were helped by The Word (National Centre for the Written Word) in South Shields and the National Libraries of Scotland. The young people used their research to create their own book, working with a heritage-arts educator, sharing their history of The Customs House with our community. Content The resource includes: Our research into chap books using The Word; National Centre for the Written Word local history collection in South Shields and information from The National Library of Scotland. Pages from our chap book about the history of The Customs House in South Shields and it’s impact on the town.
