'Through War and Rebellion: Cork 1912-1918' Schools Resource Packs
|This page in Irish/An leathanach seo i nGaeilge: SP1912-18 Gaeilge Cork City and County Archives presents a set of new resource packs for students and teachers in Secondary Schools. Focusing on the momentous period from the introduction of the 3rd Home Rule Bill to the end of the First World War, the packs present facsimiles of important original documents from the valuable local archive collections preserved here at the Archives. These illustrate events such as the Titanic’s departure, the formation of the Irish Volunteers, and the 1916 Rising, and are drawn from ledgers, minute books, diaries, letters, and plans, shedding light on themes such as politics, war, women’s suffrage, poverty, commerce, and, most importantly, on the lives of those who lived and died in these years. The document images come with background information, and there are recording sheets and quizzes for class work. There are links for those who wish to find out more, or use the documents for project work.Teachers and students are encouraged to contact us with any questions or for advice, and are welcome to arrange group visits to explore the Archives and learn more about our collections and services.|
