Synopsis

History and Literacy Building the Lesson Around the Text by Christine Counsell

This series of teacher's books supports dynamic learning and effective teaching in history. This book helps teachers build their Y8 lessons around extended historical text. It draws from five areas of mainstream Key Stage 3 content: - The Tudors' attitudes to the poor; - Elizabeth I -- the image maker; - The Reformation; - The English Civil War; - The French Revolution. It includes extended texts from a range of genres. These are analysed for their potential for literacy and history learning. Each chapter then lays out a range of carefully-trialled, precise and challenging learning activities based around these texts. History and Literacy in Y8 is a must for all teachers, advisers, consultants and trainers involved in implementing government initiatives in the Key Stage 3 frameworks and Key Stage 3 strategy, or those involved in initial teacher training or ongoing professional development and INSET.>
