In this course we’ll consider why writing historical stories can be a good option for child readers. We’ll look at the rich range of material history offers, considering how best to handle it for a young audience. We’ll consider how to research, and then use, historical material, always in the service of a strong story. In addition to the daily sessions and reading, there is a writing challenge. This is a double course which can only be taken with Am29.
