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.

Success & Failure: 'The Black Power Movement'.

Success & Failure: 'The Black Power Movement'.

The aim of this lesson is to introduce the concept of ‘Black Power’ to pupils. The lesson begins with pupils inferring and discussing a source of evidence showing a black man tied down by the non-violent events which has happened so far during the Civil Rights Movement - this leads into the introduction of the need for violence to achieve black peoples aims. Pupils watch a short video on the Mexico Olympics of 1968 to help introduce this – before being introduced to the Black Panthers through a listening activity from an interview with Huey Newton and a study of the Panthers 10-point programme. The main task involves pupils studying a card sort and categorizing the successes and failures of the movement. Pupils could mix - pair - share to help do this or simply working individually or in pairs before forming an overall judgment on the success of the movement. Pupils then consolidate their learning with a short video before answering an exam style balanced answer statement question. Further advice can be found in the description of the presentation - all videos are embedded (links also provided).
