Teaching Materials

Students’ engagement with the poems of SuAndi and Shamshad Khan will be encouraged by accompanying worksheets, including creative and critical exercises based on the poetry. They will cover such topics as page/stage debate, conflict, migration, home, belonging, identity and ‘different cultures’.

Some of our worksheets and other materials are posted below. Others will be restricted to those participating in the project: these will be available via our Teacher’s Forum page.

The following teaching materials were adapted from Postcolonial Manchester by Lynne Pearce, Corinne Fowler and Robert Crawshaw (Manchester University Press, 2013); the worksheets were devised by Dr Sarah Ilott, Research Assistant, North-West Writers into Schools:

Manchester Irish Writers’ Group

Manchester’s Colonial Past

Manchester Migrations

Manchester: The Rainy City
