Event description

Description

This History Teaching Conference is ideal for secondary teachers and school leaders who would like to learn about the extensive work carried out by the Harris Federation over the last three years, focusing on the revised History curriculum.

The programme is being organised and led by History specialists from across the Federation. Guests will have the opportunity to attend an exciting key note speech from Kate Jones, Head of History at Brighton College (@87History) on 'Improving Literacy in the History Classroom' and four insightful workshops, with choices including:

---

Zoë Howells – Narrative strategies for the new GCSE History

Narrative history questions have now been reintroduced to the new History GCSEs after a long absence from formal assessment. Participants will consider this new requirement, and how to encourage students to write knowledgeable, accurate and analytical historical accounts through practical ideas.

Richard McFahn – Teaching thematically in the new GCSE – crime and punishment

An opportunity for teachers who are new to thematic units at GCSE and who are looking to expand their knowledge of this topic as well as prepare and enthuse students.

Chris Davies What does the new GCSE mean for KS3:

Given the changing demands of GCSE both in terms of subject content and question type, not to mention the end of coursework, much of the focus for current history departments will be on KS4. Yet this workshop will explore the importance of planning further back to provide students the necessary foundations to hit the new GCSEs running rather than plodding.

Katie Matthews – Running a ‘tight ship’ – otherwise known as leading a successful History department!

A practical and interactive session that looks at the role and expectations of subject leaders or teachers with responsibility in History. With so many changes, and departments potentially feeling overwhelmed, this session aims to share practical approaches and advice on how to lead with purpose and success. We will cover the changing demands of the role and expectations and provide transferrable solutions on how you can effectively lead a team to meet the plan and maximise performance of both staff and students.

Zoë Howells – Using Teaching History articles to inspire and stretch your teaching repertoire!

The Teaching History journal, published by the Historical Association, is one of the most well-established subject specific publications and has been the premier forum for sharing excellent practice across Britain’s history teaching community. Come and consider practical activities inspired by TH articles, classic and modern!
