The History in Practice series provides professional development for history teachers. This volume provides practical guidance on how to use visual sources to build better lessons in KS3 and GCSE History. It draws on popular content and iconic visuals, such as the Bayeux Tapestry, to challenge current practice and tackle key issues facing the teacher using historical pictures: - the importance of background knowledge in understanding and using pictures in the history classroom - techniques to encourage pupils to observe closely - to look beyond the obvious - how to design effective questions that take pupils on a voyage of exploration - how to help pupils understand political cartoons - how to use pictures to explore interpretations of history Key features: - Ready-to-use well-trialled classroom activities complete with photocopiable resource sheets - Clear explanation of flexible techniques that can be applied across the history curriculum - Provocative analysis of the agenda facing history teaching in Key Stage 3 and GCSE - Exploration of the relationship between visual literacy and historical knowledge and understanding
