Ulster-Scots and the Story of Linen
CCEA in association with The Ulster Scots Agency, has developed a new web based World Around Us resource entitled, 'Woven in Ulster: Ulster-Scots and the Story of Linen' for use by teachers of Years 6, 7 or 8.
The resource commissioned by the Ulster Scots Agency focuses on the role the Ulster-Scots community played in the production of linen in Ulster. Woven in Ulster explores the linen industry from cottages to factories and finally to its decline in the twentieth century. The resource is mapped to the Northern Ireland Curriculum and provides both a wide range of cross-curricular lesson plans and the resources required to teach each lesson.
