One angle I didn't expect was that Black Tudors is being used in English lessons too- Wendy Lennon is giving her students at Brockington College, Leicester the short fictional paragraphs I wrote at the beginning of each chapter imagining a moment in each Black Tudor's life to read and then asking them to continue the story in their own words!
We are now looking to plan a second workshop to enhance the resources we already have to create a coherent set of lesson plans covering all the different angles teachers may have to cover, based on the teaching experience and feedback we've learnt from over the last two years.
So, if you're keen to learn more, check out the resources shared by some of the teachers I'm working with, who are already teaching Black Tudors on this Shared Google Drive. We'd love you to give us your feedback, and/or add your own lesson plans to the drive.
The ultimate aim is to produce Schemes of Work and lesson plans inspired by Black Tudors that any teacher can download and take straight into their classrooms. These will be published by Hodder Education later this year. If you want to be kept informed of our progress, or get involved, please enter your email address in the form below.
