Routledge – 2002 – 208 pages
Written by practitioners for practitioners, Enlivening Secondary History is the ideal handbook for busy history teachers who want to do something different in their classrooms, but have little time to plan and organise their lessons. Featuring tried-and-tested practical ideas complete with relevant exemplars and step-by-step advice, this book offers forty activities based on the following four themes:
* numerical data
* abstract ideas
* primary texts.
Each activity includes links to important topics at Key Stages 3 and 4 and at A/AS level including the Crusades; the Reformation; the two World Wars; Revolutionary Russia and many more.
All the ideas are explained in a clear, user-friendly style, with a breakdown of the time and resources needed for each one.
This extensive resource allows teachers to bring history alive in an imaginative and innovative way. It will be an indispensable guide for both experienced and student teachers.
