We have created a series of activities/questions for the book Our Untold Stories - The Asian Community in Gloucestershire. All the material from the book is also presented online here at iRespect.net
Here is a suggested framework for their use... but feel free to restructure this material as suits your teaching groups and timescales. Please send us feedback.
These activites have been designed as a whole class project, involving group work and individual work. We estimate there is 4 to 6 weeks work in this module depending on age ability, lesson length and homework.
There are extension tasks within the work. Differentiation could occur through specifically allocating specific tasks to specific groups or through ensuring that groups are fully mixed ability to begin with. Work could be for whole school display.
A FRAMEWORK FOR TACKLING THIS MODULE
The class should be divided into 8 groups.
Activities for all groups
Activities for individual groups - materials are prepared for whole class display and sharing.
(Note: we recommend the excellent “Thinking Through History”; Peter Fisher with Ian Wilkinson; Chris Kington Publishing; 1 899857 44 3 - This provided a basis for some of the activities above.)
EVALUATION / FEEDBACK
A final note for teachers – many of you will recognise the tlf approach to thinking skills adopted here. In the spirit of this approach, students could fill in the assessment sheet to provide you with some feedback - we'd be very interested to know how you got on. Please give us some feedback as well.
