Families, Learning and Storytelling: Using archives for community cohesion

This resource pack sets the context for developing family learning programmes using archive collections. It shows how using archives for family learning can provide opportunities to promote reading through non-fiction texts which draw on the wealth of stories in the collections. These stories together with families' own stories can be used to support community cohesion.

The materials are relevant to managers, staff, tutors and teachers interested in developing family learning programmes with archives. The pack can be used as part of the partnership and curriculum planning process and includes example schemes of work and links to resources.
