Description

Widening Perspectives

Book your place now for this term's London History Forum at the UCL Institute of Education for an immersive evening of professional development around the theme of Widening Perspectives.

As the current National Curriculum for history states, one purpose of the history curriculum is to “help pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies, the relationship between different groups as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.”

Of course widening perspectives can mean this and so much more – from what we teach, when and to whom to how we choose to teach it. The keynote speech from Will Bailey-Watson, subject lead for History PGCE at the University of Reading, will focus on widening horizons within, and beyond, the taught curriculum:

The renewed emphasis on curriculum in many schools is giving history teachers a chance to rethink and reshape their curriculums at all age groups. But how many departments and teachers are looking to go beyond a fairly chronological, canonical structure and start asking new questions about the possibilities of a history curriculum? In this keynote session Will plans to share his thoughts reflecting on classroom experience and the literature of others, and suggest some ways that more perspectives, more voices and wider horizons might form part of a coherent, powerful history curriculum at any key stage.

Join us for the next London Forum which, as always, will include workshops exploring the latest thinking and practice from well-respected teachers and historians for both Primary and Secondary teachers. Book your place today!
