Archives are not just an amazing resource for the teaching of history – they can also be used to teach literacy. We have started to produce some worksheets showing how archival material can be used to look at various kinds of texts that are based around the theme of the Home Front. These downloadable pdf worksheets have been created by one of our students, Annette Shaw.
