Teaching Resources

Teaching Resources Collection | Hullabaloo!

Located close to the library entrance, the Teaching Resources Collection (TRC) is home to around 24,000 resources for primary and secondary trainee teachers, students working or intending to work in educational settings, and students of children’s literature.  The space is split into two areas - children's resources and teachers' resources - with the overall design intended to facilitate browsing, quiet study and group discussion.  

Children's Resources

Children’s Resources include picture books, fiction and non-fiction books, big books (fiction and non-fiction), dual language books, feature films, audio books, resource packs, artefact boxes, novelty books, puppets, Storysacks® and journals. At their heart it is an extensive collection of classic and contemporary children's literature.  All major authors and illustrators are represented, demonstrating the development of children’s literature over many decades. Though the emphasis is on British literature there is also a good selection of American fiction, world fiction, and books translated into English from other languages. Poetry books and fairy tales also feature.  Newly published works are added each year, including titles shortlisted for the principal book prizes and awards. We also obtain and replace classics and works by authors who are less prominently promoted by the media.  To promote this wonderful collection of children's literature we have compiled the following bibliographies:

Adventure and Mystery Stories Bibliography
Bullying Bibliography
Film Adaptations Bibliography
Historical Stories Bibliography
Picture Books for Older Readers Bibliography
Refugees and Asylum Seekers Bibliography
Stories from Other Cultures Bibliography

Teachers' Resources

Teachers' Resources support teachers and trainee teachers in developing lesson plans and teaching strategies to implement the National Curriculum. The collection includes National Curriculum documents, government reports, reading and phonic schemes, educational textbooks, teaching handbooks and lesson planning guides.  Teachers’ Resources are for reference only to allow students to compare and contrast different educational materials.
