This resource book offers ideas for developing the reading and writing aspects of literacy as well as an inspiration for historical investigation. The Flashbacks novels themselves are offered as starting points to inspire children with ideas to spark their own responses to one of the most dramatic periods of world history. For each of the four World War II Flashbacks novels, there are five literacy lesson plans, each with at least one accompanying photocopiable worksheet. Each activity is directly linked to the requirements of the NLS, but links are also drawn to other curricular subjects. In addition, there are author studies, offering insights into the reading and writing of historical fiction, and an extensive bibliography.
