Designed for all students learning to teach in secondary schools, and particularly those on school-based Initial Teacher Training courses, the books in this best-selling series complement our key textbook Learning to Teach in the Secondary School and its companion Starting to Teach in the Secondary School. Each book in the series applies underpinning theory and addresses practical issues to support students in school and in the higher education institution in learning how to teach a particular subject. This revised edition of the student reference guide for student teachers of history enables the reader to teach history in a way that pupils will find interesting, enjoyable and purposeful. It incorporates a wide range of ideas about the teaching of history with practical suggestions for classroom practice, and ideas for further investigations of particular aspects of teaching and learning in history. The book also covers questions such as how to provide for differential learning and how to utilise the potential of new technology in the history classroom. The new edition has an updated chapter on ICT and reflects the recent changes in emphasis in the history curriculum including citizenship, and social, cultural and ethnic diversity. The induction of newly qualified teachers is addressed as are recent concerns about teachers' subject knowledge. The first edition rapidly became the key textbook in this field and has consistently enjoyed large sales. The second edition is destined to perform even better.
