Remembrance and Memorialisation

Over the course of a school year, teachers will mark a number of key anniversaries. Often, it is hard to come up with original ideas for supporting lessons. Here, we look at the main acts of Remembrance, such as Armistice Day and Holocaust Memorial Day, along with less well-known examples of Remembrance and Memorialisation. The course outlines a number of types of memorialisation, providing activity ideas that could be used in most locations and for a range of different events. This enhances major acts of remembrance within the school and also embraces alternative methods of delivering local or regional history. This course is available throughout the year and support for users is always available. It is hosted on our Virtual Learning Environment. Interaction is in a secure area and the course makes use of a range of multimedia, articles, interactive tasks and discussion areas.
