This resource will help you explore Malorie Blackman’s award winning book, Noughts & Crosses. The resources have been produced to help you make the most of our online Authors Live event with Malorie Blackman, but you can also use them to think about the themes of equality, conflict and political activism in Malorie's books. Some of the activities also provide an opportunity to think about historical events which may be useful as part of broader discussions for Black History Month.
Activities in the resource include:
- The newsroom: creating a TV news broadcast
- Civil rights and the Black power movement report
- I have a dream: writing a political speech
- Page to stage: scriptwriting
- Write your own poem
