My NEW Training Day for History Teachers!

Friday 22nd March 2019

"A History Teacher's Toolbox: effective, practical and creative ideas to use in your classroom".

A hands-on training course delivered by Russel Tarr, full-time history teacher and author of ActiveHistory and ClassTools and the best-selling 'History Teaching Toolbox'.

Are you a history teacher keen to spend a day trying out some fresh and creative techniques and resources to use in your classroom? I am delivering a training day to showcase and share some of the most effective techniques and resources that I have been using with my own students!

The course will take place in central Sheffield, UK at a dedicated training center. A comprehensive workpack, refreshments and a buffet lunch will be provided. You're guaranteed to leave at the end of the day with a clutch of useful resources and ideas to use immediately with your own students.

The course will cover such things as:

  • Using "Escape the Room" scenarios in the history classroom
  • "History Mysteries" as the basis for effective student enquiries
  • Engaging strategies for reading, note-taking and essay-writing
  • Simple decision-making and strategy games
  • Tools for prioritisation, categorisation, analysis
  • Techniques for improving teacher-led lectures
  • Meaningful roleplay techniques
  • Fresh approaches to debating and discussion
  • Creative homework strategies
  • Teaching through images and mapwork
  • Effective cross-curricular projects with other departments
  • The potential of social media: Twitter and Facebook
  • 60 tools in 60 minutes
