Description

Primary history is one of the richest areas of teaching and learning, but in order to teach it well trainee teachers need a strong understanding of key historical concepts and the dynamics of the national curriculum.

Combining a detailed focus on the core skills and principles underpinning good history teaching, this book helps students to:

·         appreciate the key concepts that underpin historical understanding

·         engage deeply with the programmes of study for Key Stage 1 and 2

·         assess children’s historical understanding 

·         apply a cross-curricular approach to teaching

This is essential reading for anyone studying primary history on initial teacher education courses including undergraduate (BEd, BA with QTS), postgraduate (PGCE, SCITT), school-based training (School Direct, Teach First), and qualified teachers who wish to enhance their professional knowledge.
