Event code SCH 22/399 
Event description Course facilitator: Mark Hartley

Following on from the success of the ELP humanities course last year and the launch of the history and geography subject leader networks, we are offering a similar course, to further develop capacity across Ealing schools, based on the same principles, with a few updates. The evaluations from last year were excellent, as set out here: 

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the training, I found it extremely useful and feel that it has had a huge impact on how I now lead the subject. 

Both Helen and Liane have said that they've seen a significant shift in the history pedagogy and the overall status of the subject within the school. Our delivery is the strongest it has ever been. The teaching strategies used, development of oracy and revision of our whole school plan has had a huge impact on the children. I can confidently say that children are learning more, more engaged and therefore learning more.

Claire de Sousa, Lady Margaret Primary School

Outline of the course: 

·       receiving an overview of the key principles for effective teaching in each subject through presentations that were informed by up-to-date publications and guidance offered by the two subject associations and an experienced humanities teacher.

·       analysing films of geography and history teaching to agree the principles of good practice

·       being given illustrative examples of six pedagogic approaches (focused on active pupil learning) and subsequently being asked to conduct some active classroom research

·       having plenty of time to conduct that research

·       delivering a short presentation on the findings from that classroom research

·       engaging in active learning exercises that focus on leadership

·       being given a range of leadership tools  

·       having plenty of time to conduct active leadership research at school base

·       delivering a short presentation on the use and impact of two of these leadership tools.

In addition to the course content from last year, we will also focus on:

·       Strategies taken from Mary Myatt’s’ publication 'Back on Track', specifically adapted for the teaching of these two subjects

·       Promoting the key themes from the curriculum component of the Race Equality Commission report

·       Introducing some new pedagogic approaches for the active classroom research

·       Strategies that promote manageable, realistic, easy-to-implement approaches to assessment in the two subjects 

·       Communicating findings that emerged from the two separate active research activities carried out by participants during the first          course

Who should apply: Humanities subject leaders in primary schools who have the capacity to be released for 5 days, undertake active classroom and active leadership research and support Professional Growth in their schools.
