This is a lesson plan to accompany my children's novel, The Easter Rising 1916 - Molly's Diary by Patricia Murphy. The lesson plan is a chapter by chapter guide that follows the integrated core curriculum and includes ideas, quizzes, suggestions and links to further research. There are also photographs to encourage storytelling and as a visual resource.
The novel has been critically acclaimed as "a brilliantly imagined and gripping story from the heart of the 1916 Rising, meticulously researched" by Joe Duffy, Broadcaster and "a fascinating story with a compelling young girl at its heart...a beautifully written and accessible read for all ages."
