Due to popular demand we are delighted to be holding another Practical Histories Conference at the University of Sussex on Saturday, 4 February, 2023.
This conference aims to provide you with practical ideas that you can use immediately in the classroom.
We have lined up many brilliant speakers, all of whom will share practical tips on different aspects of history curriculum planning and teaching.
The day comprises four separate sessions designed to inspire you and provide you with subject-specific CPD with specific focus on curriculum planning and how to decolonise your curriculum, promoting literacy, essay writing, the importance of stories in your teaching, the role of substantive concepts AND lots of practical advice on how to engage learners.
Keynote speakers are textbook author Ben Walsh and National Archives lead, Andrew Payne.
Ben and Andrew will be sharing their brilliant work Forgotten Voices from Workhouses in the 19th Century.
This project helped uncover and use letters from paupers. These letters give new insights into life in the Workhouse.
Our other keynote speaker is the fantastic Simon Beale. Simon, co founder of the History Teachers’ Book Club, will share many practical ideas on how he injects historical scholarship into his lessons.
Be prepared to take-away loads of new teaching ideas.
