Historical fiction for Industrial Revolution
Posted 06 March 2003 - 05:59 PM
We're in the process of re-writing our scheme on the Industrial Revolution. We are keen to incorporate some historical fiction at some point - and there seems to be quite a lot written specifically for KS3. Does anyone use any of the materials available? And, if so, could you please let me know your experiences?

This is one for the agricultural revolution. I think it was a comparison of sources with a glorious sunny painting of the agricultural golden age with the gloom of the description of agriculture at the beginning of Jude the Obscure? (The memory is starting to go after our year 8 reports!) I saw it at the SHP conference a couple of years ago, it was Rob Phillips who did it - I can dig out the stuff and send it to you if you'd like. PM or email me if you'd like it.

It's easy to compare the book with sources as a way of making reliability/utility more understandable.
It's part of the 'My Story' children's fiction series. All the books are written as diaries from the perspective of a young person. They may not satisfy more able students but they work well with my class. The books even have source material and timelimes at the back.
