Nelson Mandela by Oxfam

Explore the life of Nelson Mandela and the differences between biography and autobiography with these materials for English and Literacy. The lessons develop critical reading skills, invite shared discussion, and provide the opportunity for pupils to develop their own writing skills. They also provide ideas for discussing the difference between explicit and implicit points of view, and the differences between first and third person narration. The materials are designed for schools in the UK, but could be adapted to other settings.
