Jan 272018

A day course, on 25 June 2018, run by members of the university’s history department, updating teachers on interpretations of and sources for major GCSE topics – Anglo-Saxon and Norman England, the American West and Nazi Germany, together with an introduction to the University’s Holocaust Learning Centre.

The programme introduction says:

This one-day event for teachers of history aims to give you a powerful injection of history, not only to feed your curiosity, but to give you ideas about how we use sources – and about how you might use them. We’ll offer four content sessions linked to aspects of GCSE History, by our own historians here at the University. These will focus on interpretations and sources, and take place in the History department, in the new Oastler Building. Lunch is included! In the afternoon, you’ll move to the Holocaust Learning Centre, which opens on campus in June 2018. You’ll get to talk with the centre’s curators about resources and events for teachers and students, and discuss using Holocaust primary sources in your teaching.
