Interviews and articles

Hi everyone,

Its a windy, wet Sunday, so I’m inside giving my website a spring (winter) clean. I’m making a few tweaks to hopefully improve it’s usability.

One new feature is a Teachers’ section, where all my teacher notes and classroom resources are listed and linked on the one page.

I’m also getting rid of a page I used to called Media – an archive of newspaper articles, interviews and videos. I’m putting them into blog posts (like this one) instead.

Here’s a list of past interviews and articles, saved here for easy access – mostly for myself, to be honest, so that I have an archive – but also in case you have a school project that requires you to do some research.
