The First World War as an Example of the Natural Link Between Teaching and Research.
Liddle, P. H.
Must there be a dichotomy between research and teaching? Believing that the two go hand in hand rather than at odds with each other the author illustrates how cooperation between both can take place. At the Suderland Polytechnic History Division, in which students are preparing for B. Ed. and Teaching Certificate work, students study the particular area of the First World War, using and contributing to the developing research archive resources of the Department in preparation of their dissertation which specifically focuses on one aspect of the war. Research work consists of collecting materials, assessing it for archival purposes, and producing sources of references. Emphasis is upon students gathering primary sources such as letters, diaries, photographs, papers, maps, and oral recollections of war experiences that relate to personal experiences in the war. Three purposes behind the work are to preserve a perishable record; to use materials informally in the schools in an effort to bring pupils to an understanding of the war; and to train students in the historical method.
