Geoff Barton chooses resources


Three Wishes: Palestinian and Israeli Children Speak by Deborah Ellis (Groundwood BooksFrances Lincoln, pound;5.99). Powerful first-hand accounts of conflict in the Middle East by children, for the library rather than whole-class use.


Folens Accessing series. Titles include Diversity and Discrimination and Crime and Justice. Pupil books pound;5.99, teacher evaluation packs pound;9.99. Much more fun than most coursebooks: a lively, highly visual collection of images, cartoons, adverts and quotations. In the hands of a confident, committed teacher, this is a perfect source of provocative lessons.


The Newspaper is a great idea: a quality newspaper written for young people that informs them but never patronises.

Geoff Barton is head of King Edward VI School, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
