Treks n trails from Cindy Watson (IDTL Network)

Cindy combined short-listed books and some information literacy work - looking at primary and secondary sources - to use with Year 6 and 7 classes, so the three books set in World War Two were an obvious choice. Cindy interviewed some people living locally about their experiences in WWII and linked to these oral histories as primary sources: an English boy, a German girl and an Australian girl. The memories of a German girl, Maria, are of the night her town was destroyed in a massive bombing raid. It plays well on iPad, Mac and Windows computers but has been less co-operative on EQ CFT at school! (Cindy used Quicktime to play the mp4 version but might have to have a go at converting to a wav file and reducing the file size.)
