Session 1: Grappling with the GCSE specification in history. 

29 November 2023, 3:30-16:30 (Virtual)

We are inviting all exam board history advisers as last year to share feedback from the history GCSE summer examinations and inform us about future developments.

Steering Group members who have been highly successful at GCSE will also be helping us think through how to best use GCSE curriculum time and help support students grappling with GCSE knowledge content, sharing their strategies. The Network of teachers will share current strategies and success stories.

Session 2: Teaching migration and empire

25 January 2024, 13:30-16:30 (Virtual)

National Speaker Ben Walsh is delivering a session on integrating migration and empire into Key Stage 3 ‘British History’.

Steering group members will be sharing their work on teaching Empires and resistance to it to broaden the scope of the KS3 curriculum with the Network of teachers sharing their approaches to building knowledge on these concepts through the curriculum.

Session 3: Adaptive teaching in the history classroom

13 March 2024, 13:30-16:30 (F2F at the curriculum centre Winchester)

How do we make sure that no child is left behind in the history classroom? How do we ensure they have access to historical scholarship and analytical reasoning? How can they make sense of historical content and how do we know they have understood it? What adaptive practices work well in the history classroom?

We will be face to face at the curriculum centre. Steering Group members will be demonstrating adaptive practices in the history classroom and the research behind them and will be a brilliant opportunity to network face to face.
