Free INSET on raising attainment in the history classroom with Dale Banham and Ian Luff

Raising standards in history at Key Stages 3 and 4: A pedagogic master class from Dale Banham and Ian Luff

Need inspiration and ideas to raise motivation levels and standards in your KS3 and KS4 history classrooms?  This free event is a must for all history teachers and leaders.

We are delighted that Dale and Ian have agreed to come and share their experience, ideas and examples on history teaching.

Based on his chapter in Debates in History Teaching (2017) edited by Ian Phillips, Dale will share his thoughts and techniques on how to raise attainment over time – crucial INSET for any trainee, history teacher or head of department.

Ian will guide us on how to make learning active, how to use role play and practical demonstration in the classroom. Experience tells me that this is huge fun and the learning potential for students from such techniques are immense. They will also share strategies on how to manage workload and survive as a history teacher in the present schooling system. Expect the day to be active, informative and fun.
