WWI War Memorial Workshop

Return to Teachers Toolkit Search


An on-campus event in which groups of up to 25 students spend a day at the University learning how to research the people named on a war memorial. This workshop focuses on the war memorial in the University's Armstrong Building but the skills your students learn during this workshop can be applied to  war memorials nearer to school or home. Students will be shown how to use online search tools to find out about the fallen and will also use archival resources in the University Library.

This workshop is designed to complement our teaching pack on WWI memorials which is also available on this website.
