Resourcing the new history curriculum
Aims

  • To develop knowledge and understanding of the key changes to the history curriculum from Sept 2014

  • To understand how we have responded to these changes when training BED and PGCE students how plan, teach and assess history

  • To explore some key resources that are being used in BEd and PGCE modules to exemplify the new curriculum


Interpreting the new curriculum
Interpreting the new curriculum

Concepts, skills and knowledge

  • Key concepts and historical skills are now described in the opening paragraph of the ‘subject content’ section of the PoS

  • Subject knowledge is listed in the bullet pointed section of the PoS

  • The lack of numbered points makes it difficult for students to reference their lesson plans to the PoS

  • Students have been told that they will need to quote directly from these two sections of the PoS in their planning documentation


Changes at ks1
Changes at KS1

  • ‘changes in their own lives and way of life of their family’ is replaced by ‘changes within living memory’

  • Reference to ‘the way of life of people in the more distant past’ does not appear in the new document.

  • Reference to ‘the lives of significant individuals’ is still there, but there is a requirement to ‘compare aspects of life in different periods’

  • Increased emphasis on local history


Changes at ks2
Changes at KS2

  • British history: Stone age – 1066

  • Local history study

  • Study of an aspect or theme in British history that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066

  • Earliest civilisations (Ancient Sumer, Indus Valley, Ancient Egypt, Shang Dynasty Ancient China)

  • Ancient Greece

  • Non-European society (Baghdad c. AD 900, Mayan civilisation c.AD900, Benin (West Africa) c. Ad 900-1300


At the university of gloucestershire
At the University of Gloucestershire

  • 2013-2014 Teaching to current curriculum and introducing students to aspects of the new curriculum e.g. new lectures on Stonehenge and Vikings, increased emphasis on local history and thematic units

  • 2014-2015 Will teach students about the characteristics of effective history teaching with case studies from both curriculum documents. This will enable me to address the needs of students teaching in independent schools and academies who might not be following the new curriculum. Will broaden curriculum coverage as more resources are published.
