Summary

History is one of the most extensively taught and enjoyed of the non-core primary school subjects. However, many practitioners have limited understanding of the skills of historical enquiry. Where teaching was less effective it was found that learning was passive, without challenge or clear goals and so with limited progression. There is also a generally perceived need for more creative approaches to a broader primary curriculum as reports warn of the winnowing out of fun in teaching pedagogies. Teaching History Creatively tackles both issues head on, introducing teachers to the wealth of available approaches to historical enquiry, which will ensure creative, effective learning. Under-pinned by theory and research, it offers informed and practical support, illustrated throughout by examples of children's work. Key themes addressed include: How good history education and creativity are inseparable Investigating sources: archaeology, visits and time capsules Using archives in your own research project Historical agents and history detectives! Drama for exploring events, myths and legends Communicating historical understanding creatively. Written by experienced authors with extensive experience of initial teacher education and history teaching in the primary school, this book is an essential purchase for any professional who wishes to embed creative approaches to teaching in their classroom.
