This whole website is an educational resource, with points for discussion and ideas from schools on how they have approached the study of Gallipoli. However, we have included the resources on this page to help teachers introduce the project and get to grips with some of the main issues. The pack was written for us by Julian Vayne, who coordinated the educational projects in Devon, in consultation with teachers there. The resources are intended for secondary and post-16 students, although primary teachers may find ideas for class activities. Click on the links below to download the resources.
