Narrative description

A digital textbook for the study of The New Zealand Wars at senior high school level. The resource contains descriptions of most of the battles contained in the N.Z. Wars along with images and video from the battle sites. I intend this to be a multimedia resource that is a combination of content developed by me and activities for students to complete so the textbook will be enhanced and developed by students and other teachers in a co-constructed fashion.
