Interview with history teachers at the Schools History Project Conference, 4 July 2009

Four teachers attending the Schools History Project Conference in 2009 accepted an invitation to have their discussion recorded for the History in Education Project. The question under discussion is 'Is history better taught today than when you were at school?' For one of the teachers, the recollection of school was not too far distant - she had been taught the National Curriculum and was now teaching it herself. For others, the comparison was over a longer time period, with the opportunity to reflect on changes over their careers as well as the contrast between now and then. Issues discussed include changes in the style of teaching, the impact of technology and the shift from factual narrative to examining evidence, as well the deeper question as to what makes 'better' history teaching at any time. Discussion hosted by Nicola Sheldon
