Wednesday July 10th at 5.00pm in Room 944.
Please do join us for the final History SIG of the year at the IOE.

Four London-based history teachers will be sharing the findings of research and development work that they have carried out in their own schools as the final stage of the MA Education (History) programme. Two of the presentations are extremely practical – focused on developing students’ capacity to construct written explanations and on encouraging them to adopt a more independent approach to historical enquiry. Two look more closely at the sense that students’ make of the history curriculum – what they think history is for and how they use it. The findings themselves are extremely interesting and there is much to learn from them, but we also hope that the session will give an insight into Master’s level research for anyone thinking about enrolling and an idea of what is involved in the dissertation for anyone now preparing to undertake their final research-based module.

Further details about the four presentations are given below and on the attached information sheet.
