This is a very professional resource. The images selected are highly emotive. The text is informative but promotes enquiry skills equally well. Provision of a timeline, teaching notes, creative and cultural activities, contributes to a comprehensive resource with a specialist focus. Importantly, the resource uses material that learners are able to connect with through the choice of people, locations and issues highlighted. It provides teachers with a unique and very well presented resource linked to their locality and subject. It also offers great potential for cross-curricular work, promoted through links between art, history and citizenship contained in the resource. The high quality of the publication reflects the standard of visual presentation that learners should be encouraged to aspire to. It would be very worthwhile developing a complementary series of images and writing produced by pupils, students and their teachers in response to the resource.
