A2 What are Humanities Specialist Schools and what are they doing?

There are 87 aspiring Humanities Specialist Schools across the country of which over 20 will be up and running in September 2004. Humanities Specialist Schools have a distinctive ethos, have access to wide range of educational expertise and are creating a strong network for innovation in teaching and learning. This workshop will outline how to become part of this community of schools.

Jackie Anthony, (Humanities Subject Leader for the Specialist Schools Trust)

A3 (*B3) The Medium, the Message and the Myth: Using film to explore historical interpretations

If historians have a responsibility to be ‘myth-slayers’, how do history teachers guard against our pupils swallowing whole chunks of history by Hollywood?

How do we encourage pupils to apply the same critical thinking skills to a film as they would a written text?

This workshop uses a depth study of JFK to explore how to:

· Encourage pupils to think about films at a deeper level

· Integrate film clips into serious in-depth enquiry work

· Use film to broaden pupils’ understanding of historical interpretations

Dale Banham (Teaching & Learning Co-ordinator and Head of History, Holbrook High School, Suffolk) and Russell Hall, (Head of English, Kesgrave High School and consultant for Literacy and Film Studies)

A4 Assessment for Learning in History (I)

Under pressure to award level descriptions on individual pieces of work? Having to split up levels and report on whether Wayne has moved from “4a” to “4b” at regular intervals?

This workshop will demonstrate how the history department at Cottenham Village College near Cambridge resisted such pressures. It will show how the department plans exciting Key Stage 3 enquiries which build in motivational peer and self assessment as well as developing task-specific criteria for core assessments. This approach will be exemplified using materials from History on line about Olaudah Equiano which the department adapted for use with Year 9 pupils.

Andrew Wrenn (History Adviser, Cambridgeshire) and Geraint Brown (Head of History, Cottenham Village College)

(See also Workshop C8)

A5 (*C5) Inspiring and Instilling Confidence in Lower Ability Pupils by Using and Building Upon Role Play and Practical Demonstration Techniques.

In this active workshop participants will explore the confidence-building power of appropriately selected role play and practical demonstration. This preliminary establishment of confidence will then be used as a springboard to move the pupil through a series of progressively more challenging classroom activities aimed at a variety of learning styles.

Ian Luff (Assistant Headteacher, Kesgrave High School, Suffolk, and former

Head of History)

A6 (*B6) Developing your own departmental website

This workshop aims to provide teachers with the basic knowledge required to

develop their own online presence. The workshop is a hands-on approach to

developing materials for the web, looking at developing online learning

materials and the manner in which these can be combined to provide a

functional departmental site. Delegates will receive a range of resources,

guides and resources along with software that will enable them to begin

developing their online resources. The sessions are aimed at beginners and

novice users of html packages.

Dan Moorhouse, (Head of History, Laisterdyke High School, Webmaster of schoolshistory.org.uk and administrator of the History Teachers' Discussion Forum: http://www.schoolhistory.co.uk/forum/)

A7 (*C7) ICT on a shoe string – Using moviemaker to develop pupil’s historical understanding and explanations

How many times have you looked at an email/memo/training course about using ICT effectively in History teaching and thought ‘if only I had the time’ or ‘it would be alright if I could get into an IT room’? This workshop will examine some of the ways that ICT can really develop pupil’s historical thinking and explanation skills. Using Moviemaker, digital video clips and a range of picture sources students can produce their own documentaries/ TV Trailers which require them to explain their understanding in a clear and concise way. To help overcome the problems of IT room access and expensive equipment, all of the examples that will be used have been made by students in an ordinary classroom with the use of one laptop and projector.

Sally Burnham, (Head of History, Deacon’s School, Peterborough).

A8 (*B8) How can history help to develop pupils' numeracy skills? OR " Miss - this is history not maths!"

History frequently makes major contributions to pupils' literacy development. This

workshop will focus on the contribution history can make to developing pupils'

numeracy. Most teachers use timelines and graphs. What other opportunities are

there? The workshop will investigate the possibilities and provide opportunities for participants to consider how to expand numeracy provision in their own teaching.

Charlotte Evers (Freelance educational consultant and inspector for Ofsted)

A9 (*D10) Moving On to A Level.

What are the issues facing both students and teachers on the transition

between GCSE and A Level? What do students find difficult and how can their

teachers help? This workshop will include an opportunity to examine

useful strategies and share good practice.

Bethan Edwards (Head of Humanities, Colyton School, Devon).

A10 (*E4) Teaching a Controversial Modern World Study at GCSE and Post-16

This workshop will explore teaching materials and ideas developed by a cross-curricular group of teachers drawn from history, geography, RE and citizenship. The focus is on a contemporary issue from within the Citizenship KS4 requirements but the materials have been developed for use as a possible Modern World Study and for use in post-16 contexts. Help your students understand how governments really work, explore the workings of the UN, the Catholic Church, and the world's press. The final project materials will be available on the web and will be usable in a variety of different contexts.

Alun Morgan (Adviser for History, Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin)

A11 (*D13) Web resources for Medicine Through Time

Navigating the maze of online resources proving problematic? Want to know which resources cut the mustard and where to find them? Come along to this workshop to:

· learn about medicine through time resources available for free;

· explore the ways online resources can be used;

· try out and rate a range of resources ready to take back to class.

Samantha Cairns, (Library Outreach Officer, Wellcome Library)

A12 (*D12) Effective Revision

This workshop will provide a strategy for pupils and teachers that starts with the fundamental building blocks. It will explain why History is more of a challenge, and demonstrate how to plan a revision programme for different levels of ability. There will be games, worksheets and cards that have been tried and tested in the classroom, all of which can be taken away and tried at home afterwards.

Spencer Brown, (Sandown High School)

A13 (*E5) Practical ways to introduce creativity and rigour

This workshop will introduce a variety of practical lesson activities that engage students in collaborative learning and develop their thinking skills. These range from unstructured activity in exploring open-ended questions to the structured rigour of investigating the credibility of sources. The session will be highly participative, using LogoVisual resources to get hands on with exercises which can be applied directly or readily adapted for use in your classroom.

Frank Bruce, (Tividale High School, Sandwell) and Dan Verney (Project Manager, Centre for Management Creativity)

A14 Teaching about Workhouses and the New Poor Law.

This session will use the extensive archive of the National Monuments Record and a range of other sources to look at ways of teaching about poverty and the New Poor Law in the Nineteenth century. Participants will have a CDRom containing a range of resources to take away with them.

Mary Mills (English Heritage) and Ian Coulson (Kent History Adviser)

5.30 – 6.30 PUBLISHERS’ EXHIBITION

Wine Reception courtesy of Hodder-Murray

6.30-7.30 DINNER

7.30 ‘ATTENDANCE HAS SUFFERED THIS WEEK…’

1918: ‘…many absentees during the week owing to the difficulty to secure food & the necessity to stand in queues.’

1944: ‘There was an air raid warning as the children were on their way to school…. As the gunfire was heavy adults brought the children into their houses for safety…’

These are extracts from the Headteachers’ log books of my school in Leyton, East London. The books give a fascinating, fresh and sometimes surprising view of school and community life from 1902 till the ‘fifties. I shall share some of the stories and we can reflect on what we and our students can learn from them.

Martin Spafford (Assistant Head of Humanities, i/c History, and Special Abilities Co-ordinator, George Mitchell School, Waltham Forest)

SATURDAY 3rd JULY

7.30-9.00 BREAKFAST

9.00 – 10.30 WORKSHOP SESSION B

B1 (*E1) Hidden Histories - firing pupils’ curiosity through a focus on the lives of “ordinary” individuals.

We all know that what often fires pupils’ curiosity about the past are stories and sources about the experiences of “ordinary” people. This workshop will share some fascinating stories and approaches which can be used to engage pupils with worthwhile social history at Key Stage Three. It will offer different approaches to planning enquiries which will help pupils to understand the attitudes and values of past societies.

Michael Riley (Senior Lecturer in History Education, Bath Spa University College)

B2 (*D3) The good mentor: creating creative history teachers

This session will present practical ideas and principles developed over the last seven years in the history PGCE course run by the University of Cambridge PGCE partnership. How does a mentor get to know the strengths and weaknesses of a novice history teacher? How can we place pupils’ learning and historical thinking at the centre of all mentor trainee discussion about lessons? What knowledge does the good history mentor need and how does the good mentor keep up to date with research, debates and literature? The session will include practical classroom activities that trainees have developed, followed by workshop activities on how the good mentor would stretch the trainees’ thinking, reflection and evaluation skills in the light of such classroom experiments.

Christine Counsell (Senior Lecturer in Education, University of Cambridge Faculty of Education

B3 (*A3) The Medium, the Message and the Myth:

Using film to explore historical interpretations

Dale Banham (Teaching & Learning Co-ordinator and Head of History, Holbrook High School, Suffolk) and Russell Hall, (Head of English, Kesgrave High School and consultant for Literacy and Film Studies)

B4 + C4 Art and History

This workshop will look at the potential for creative cross-curricular work in history and art on historic sites. It will be based at Kirkstall Abbey and involve a range of activities covering both the teaching of history and art. The session will be a practical session and art materials will be provided but no previous experience or expertise is required! The approaches and teaching materials will be transferable for use on other historic sites …and you can keep the art materials.

NOTE: This double workshop will run through the morning and delegates should sign up for both sessions. Transport to Kirkstall Abbey will be provided.

David Walmsley (English Heritage) and Ian Coulson (Kent History Adviser)

B5 (*D5) Using ICT in Interactive Teaching Styles

The aim of this workshop is to look at the use of ICT to develop interactive teachings styles through the use of digital media, Smart Notes and PowerPoint. We will also look at how to create practical, off the shelf starters and plenaries and explore the merits of using Smart Notes to develop thinking skills. The final part of the course will challenge the assertion made in the TES article 'Death by PowerPoint' by showcasing examples of good practice from the frontline. These will include animated mark schemes for peer assessment and interactive tours of historical sites such as Conisbrough Castle and Hadrian's Wall.

Roy Huggins, (Champion ICT History Teacher for SyeLP, Mexborough School) and Dale Harden, (History Teacher and AST for Citizenship, Mexborough School).

B6 (*A6) Developing your own departmental website

Dan Moorhouse, (Head of History, Laisterdyke High School, Webmaster of schoolshistory.org.uk and administrator of the History Teachers' Discussion Forum: http://www.schoolhistory.co.uk/forum/)

B7 (*E7) Current developments in secondary history – the QCA picture

Do you want to find out about some of the latest developments in history and engage with some of QCA's new support materials for history teachers?

This workshop will provide you with an insight and the chance to contribute to some of the following:

The development of qualifications in history and the implications of the Tomlinson Working Group on 14-19 Reform

§ The QCA 14-19 website

§ The QCA Innovating with History website

Jerome Freeman and Jane Weake, (QCA Consultants, History)

B8 (*A8) How can history help to develop pupils' numeracy skills ? OR " Miss - this is history not maths ! "

Charlotte Evers (Freelance educational consultant and inspector for Ofsted)

B9 (*E9) 'Opening the door to higher grades: talking about the Essential American West'.

What is essential about the American West and how can this be made engaging, accessible, communicable and memorable for those pupils seemingly destined to attain a grade D or lower? Come to this workshop and decide for yourself if people, pupil talk and teacher modelling are the answer.

Dave Martin, (freelance history adviser)

B10 (*E11) Productive, purposeful, pertinent plenaries

Inspection evidence suggests that the plenary is often the least successful part of the lesson. This workshop aims to help history teachers appreciate the benefits of taking time to plan an effective plenary. It will consider strategies to make the conclusion of the lesson more successful and provide lots of practical examples which could be adapted to several historical topics at Key Stages 3 & 4. The focus will be on activities which involve as many pupils as possible and which help them to reflect not just on what they have learned, but also on how they have learned it.

Steve Illingworth (Teaching & Learning Consultant, Salford, former Head of History)

B11 (*D2) The Learning Curve

Recently voted by teachers as the highest impact ICT resource for teaching

History*, the free Learning Curve website has plenty to offer. In a hands on

workshop, Tom O'Leary and Lisa Early from the National Archives will explain

and showcase the latest content to be released. They will also demonstrate an example of a structured lesson plan (handouts provided) for using The Learning Curve with KS3 and 4 pupils. All attendees will receive a free copy of the updated 2004 teacher's guide and sample CDROMs with offline content.

*Fischer Trust Survey 2003-4

Tom O'Leary (Head of Education and Interpretation, The National Archives) and Lisa Early (Learning Curve Manager, The National Archives).

B12 (*D7) The Cold War and the Assassination of JFK

Studying the assassination of John F. Kennedy has always been a popular topic in the history classroom. However, since the introduction of the National Curriculum it has been difficult to justify spending too much time on the subject. Recently released materials (tapes of LBJ’s telephone conversations in 1963 and 1964, CIA and FBI files obtained via the Freedom of Information Act and the Assassination Records Review Board, statements issued by key figures in the case, etc.) reveal that the assassination had a dramatic impact on the development of the Cold War.

This session will look at some free teaching materials that allow students to study the connections between the assassination and the Cold War. The session will also cover the establishment of a forum that enables teachers and students to enter into a dialogue with key witnesses in this case as well as several international experts on the assassination of JFK. The session will include information on the latest theories on who killed Kennedy.

John Simkin (Virtual teacher and online historian).

B13 (*E6) Foxe, Frogs and Flie-Fornication

How can you explain the influence of the church to students who live in a secular society? Using stories, sources, interpretations and oral activities, we hope to make this complex subject relevant and accessible to all learners from Key Stage 3 to A Level.

Diana Laffin (Senior Curriculum Manager, Farnborough Sixth Form College) and Maggie Wilson (Head of Year 11, Wyke Manor School, Bradford)

B14 (*E14) Implications of the Tomlinson Report for KS3

Kate Moorse (SHP Fellow, QCA)

10.30-11.10 Refreshment Break Publishers’ Exhibition area

11.10-12.40 WORKSHOP SESSION C

C1 (*D1) “Could do better” How can Assessment for Learning help the history teacher?

Assessment for Learning is a phrase that is buzzing loudly in educational circles just now. Across the country, history teachers (and others) have been developing this aspect of their work as part of the Key Stage 3 strategy. This session will use case studies from history teaching to show how Assessment for Learning fits really well into existing good practice. There will be practical examples of how to apply the principles when planning, teaching and marking.

Jamie Byrom (Adviser for history with Devon Curriculum Services)

C2 (*D6) Lively Lifelines

“Pupils are customarily asked simple data response questions, or to describe a graph…..However, use of graphs rarely excites or creates debate and argument”- Peter Fisher.

Lively Lifelines is a workshop aiming to demonstrate different methods of presenting Lifelines in the classroom. Looking at how lifelines improve the use of graphs and develop pupils thinking skills. The Workshop aims to take on Peter Fisher’s challenge and provide ideas which will excite pupils, create debate and argument around the use of information in a graph form, with specific emphasis on the use of ICT.

Tony Fox (Blakiston Community School Norton, Teeside)

C3 (*E3) So What? Finding the wider meanings in past events

Our students may often leave our lessons challenged and enthused. But could they always answer the question 'so what was the point of that?' So Henry broke with Rome. So what? So Charles I lost his head. So what? So Arkwright built a factory. So what? This workshop explores some ways of finding some answers.

Alison Kitson, (Lecturer in History Education and Teacher Development, University of Warwick).

C4 + B4 Art and History

This workshop will look at the potential for creative cross-curricular work in history and art on historic sites. It will be based at Kirkstall Abbey and involve a range of activities covering both the teaching of history and art.

C9 (*D9) Medicine through Time for middling ability students

The Medicine Through time course has plenty to motivate average ability pupils, but also much that they find difficult. This workshop will present some strategies for teaching this Development Study to students of limited ability. It will be practical, drawing on recent classroom experience. There will be an exploration of a range of strategies to enable pupils of average or lower ability to access the course and examination.

Roy Watson-Davies (AST, Blackfen School, Bexley)

C10 (*E10) Powerpoint for beginners

PowerPoint is powerful presentational software with great potential for enlivening lessons and enhancing learning - far more than just flashing up sub-titles during a talk! This will be a practical and flexible session which will explore a range of different approaches for using PowerPoint and provide basic training for teachers who want to create their own presentations. If possible, delegates should bring their own laptop with PowerPoint installed. A free CD containing several PowerPoint presentations for use in the classroom will be available to take away.

Andy Harmsworth, (AST for History and author, Simon Langton Girls' School, Canterbury)

C11 (*D11) Effective and motivating history –2004 style.

A few years ago Tim Lomas ran workshops focusing on the theme of raising numbers and standards in secondary history. This workshop looks at things a few years on, identifying what is good and successful in classroom practice and the results of recent research on effective secondary history. The workshop is concerned with highlighting some of the key features of effective history in Key Stages 3 and 4, particularly relating to pupil learning, developments in assessment, improved knowledge about pupil likes and dislikes and the effective management of secondary history

Tim Lomas (Principle School Improvement Adviser with CfBT with Lincolnshire School Improvement Service).

C12 (*D14) TimeMaps: Rise and Fall of Nazi Germany

This workshop will introduce delegates to a new CD ROM which charts the rise and fall of the Third Reich. It uses interactive maps and diagrams to explain the history of this period as clearly and as graphically as possible, and is designed to benefit students with a wide range of abilities. It can be used as a classroom resource (especially with an interactive whiteboard) as well as an individual student research tool.

Peter Britton

C13 (*E2) Topping and tailing Key Stage 3

This first half of this workshop looks at how students can be introduced to KS3 history, focusing on links to KS2, activities to diagnose understanding of concepts such as evidence and ways of getting students to think about what they need to do to do better in history. The second half examines ideas for drawing KS3 together in the last few weeks of Y9, so that students have a sense of completing a course, not just a series of unrelated bits of the past.

D4 (*E12) Using Digital Video

The use of digital video as both a teaching tool and learning resource is becoming ever more common in the UK and worldwide. This workshop will enable participants to gain a clearer understanding of how history teachers are using digital video in their teaching to develop historical skills, ideas and concepts. It will explore the latest research findings relating to the impact of digital video on learners and will introduce participants to the basic skills and principles of editing digital video for use as a learning and/or teaching resource. This will be a practical workshop in which groups of participants (2/3) will work collaboratively to develop the skills associated with digital video editing and to understand some of the possibilities for using this medium as a tool to encourage higher level order thinking and the construction of knowledge by pupils. Participants will need no prior knowledge of digital video although basic IT skills (e.g. mouse control/file management, etc) would be useful.

D8 (*E13) The Past Speaks: Using Music and Sound in History Lessons

The National Curriculum specifies that we use a variety of sources to stimulate those we teach- but how many of us really use audio materials effectively?

This session is based on some examples of using music, sound and oral history to support teaching and learning- sometimes with images and other activities, sometimes on their own.

We will use materials from a range of periods and sources to think about how we can engage young people's interest and capture the sense that is sometimes neglected in our use of sources and teaching and learning.
