The enquiry based learning resource is accessible, flexible and adaptable for History and RE but also applicable to English and Citizenship lessons.

Supported by example lesson plans, suggested activities and discussion points; pupils will develop their interpretation and analysis skills through the exploration of perceptive and challenging questions, such as:

How might Edith’s key decisions be considered both selfless and wilful?

What role did Edith’s story play in wartime propaganda? 

Whose recent actions share similarities to Edith’s values?
