In January 2010, a devastating earthquake rocked Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince. It was a story that made headline news around the world. But it's not the only story that Haiti has to tell.

Endorsed by the National Association for the Teaching of English, these resources enable pupils to develop their English skills by exploring some of Haiti's other stories. Many activities lend themselves to Guided Reading and pupils will develop their speaking and listening skills through collaborative learning. Pupils can complete the unit by creating their own story of Haiti.

This resource is also available for ages 11-14 here
