The Great North Road Map ~ The Great North Road was the main highway between London and Scotland. It became a coaching route used by mail coaches travelling between London, York and Edinburgh. The modern A1 mainly parallels the route of the Great North Road. Coaching inns, many of which survive, were staging posts providing accommodation, stabling for horses and replacement mounts.

Define terms. Define, define, define- always! This is necessary for aforementioned complicated texts. Collect background info for historical texts- if a book alludes to something and you’re not sure what it means, google it and write it down. Also, ask questions- if a character does something out of place, ask yourself why they did so; it’s probably important. This is demonstrated on my yellow post-its.
