Chatsworth road: an after school video project

Jane Speare

Children from two primary schools in the London borough of Hackney took part in a community arts funded project which investigated the history of the local high street, discovering a great deal about the cultural richness of the area. The active, investigative nature of the project challenged the participants but was particularly successful with children who had previously been seen as reluctant or disaffected learners.Thanks to The English Association for allowing UKLA to reproduce the article.
