The Whole Shebang - Student Periodical - Download Your Issue Here

The whole shebang i#B39D445Issue 14 of The Whole Shebang focuses on history, from the Shang dynasty in China to the Mafia in Sicily, the Weimar Republic in Germany to the history of toys.

Produced each half term, the periodical gives students the chance to research and write in-depth articles in their own time about topics that really interest them.

The Whole Shebang covers a topic from many different perspectives including science, history, economics and art – hence the title.

Independent learning

"We use the Whole Shebang to encourage particular pupils to challenge their independent learning outside of the classroom," said Mr Metcalfe, who co-ordinates the after-school meetings at Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich.

"The Whole Shebang is an excellent tool to provide 'Stretch and Challenge' tasks and encourage pupils to write about a topic that interests then," he added. "The independent learning skills of research, article writing, pitching to different audiences and editing their own work has really developed over the past two years."

Getting students' voices heard

The Whole Shebang enables students’ voices and viewpoints to be read by a wider audience and demonstrates young people’s potential to understand current issues. "Writing for the periodical is also setting up students for higher education and the learning styles that are essential for success," adds Mr Metcalfe.

Issue 14 is produced by students from Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich and Harris Garrard Academy in Bexley.
