Corbishley, Mike; Fordham, Jennie; Gay, Susan; Hollinshead, Liz; Spicer, Suzanne; Walmsley, David
This guide aims to help busy elementary teachers make the best use of a whole range of evidence for teaching history in schools today, covering areas of study at both Key Stages 1 and 2 (in the British school system). The guide includes: clear, richly illustrated explanatory text for the non-expert, with practical advice and project ideas; how to ask the right questions, teach key skills, use objects, games, documents, and interpretations of the past; ideas for Key Stage 1, from looking at houses or famous people or events, to using stories and timelines; the Romans in Britain; the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings; Tudor life; Victoria's England and Britain since 1930; case studies of places relating to each period; and reproducible activity sheets for classroom use or on site visits. Contains a list of selected annotated resources for further reading. (BT)
