Synopsis

Teaching History A Reader by Hilary Bourdillon

Against a background of controversy surrounding the teaching of history, this reader gathers the current thoughts of the leading practitioners. The development of school history up to the national curriculum and beyond is traced, and the main issues concerning history teachers today are examined. These issues include access to history, the definition of 'British' history in a multicultural society, gender and the place of history with the humanities. Progression and attainment are discussed as is the development of pupil's historical understanding, and practical approaches to teaching history to 11-18 level pupils are explored.
