The Historical Association Annual conference is one of the highlights of the year for history teachers, historians and history junkies alike, featuring a stellar line-up of keynote speakers.
As part of a huge programme of engaging sessions, Carmel will run her "Up on your feet get out of your seat!" workshop twice during the festival, exploring the concept that ‘new’ linear learning needn’t be one-dimensional.
In this interactive session Carmel will help you to pace yourself by modelling active techniques easily transferrable to your context. Explore opportunities for a ‘breather’ from desk-bound tasks which can punctuate your course while developing knowledge and historical skills. Taking examples from new GCSE depth and thematic studies try out these approaches to captivate your class. Be ready to think creatively and devise a take-away training plan.
