Course content

You will examine how pupils engage with the past and how we work with them as teachers to analyse, interpret, evaluate and contextualise events and historical sources.

We will explore with you a range of different approaches and activities used in history classrooms including the use of ICT. We investigate the range of approaches and methods that can be used to assess pupils' understanding and how we can use this to inform future teaching and learning.

We also explore how historical sites, fieldwork visits and museums can support and enhance pupil learning.
