Alice’s Adventures in Curriculum Land

Alice’s Adventures in Curriculum Land by Edward Wakeling

Published by Bedfordshire Education Service, 1990

The book is a collection of photocopy-able sheets for use in classrooms- word games, crossword puzzles, logic problems, poems, art and design- loads of topics all explained by or using concepts from the Alice books.

The introductory page quotes the Mock Turtle explaining his schooling to Alice:

‘When we were little,’ the Mock Turtle went on at last, more calmly, though still sobbing a little now and then, ‘we went to school in the sea. The master was an old Turtle — we used to call him Tortoise — ‘

‘Why did you call him Tortoise, if he wasn’t one?’ Alice asked.

‘We called him Tortoise because he taught us,’ said the Mock Turtle angrily: ‘really you are very dull!’

‘You ought to be ashamed of yourself for asking such a simple question,’ added the Gryphon; and then they both sat silent and looked at poor Alice, who felt ready to sink into the earth.

Written to support an exhibition of some sort- I don’t know where or exactly what of…

Wakeling is a prolific Carrollian and ex-chairman of the Lewis Carroll Society (1982-1985).

I can’t find another copy of this on-line, but you can get Wakeling’s other books on Amazon: Wakeling
