Description The 2008 National Curriculum for history placed greater emphasis on local and family history, something that many teachers find difficult to incorporate into their lessons, for a variety of reasons. The premise behind this online CPD unit is that local history can be engaging for students, as well as challenging.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students


This unit will help you investigate a selection of readily-available tools for local history, as well as exploring how local events can exemplify ‘big picture' national stories. Finally, you will have the opportunity to decide where local history can fit into your curriculum planning most effectively and seamlessly incorporate local history into your programmes of study as and when appropriate.  


Evidence underpinning this approach

The course will run over four weeks. Each week there will be a variety of individual and collaborative activities, both online and back in your school, supported by a discussion forum. Each week is planned to take you up to five hours to successfully complete and it will allow you some flexibility on when and where you complete the activities.
