In some hands history can be an inspirational and rewarding subject, yet in others it can seem dry and of little relevance. The purpose of this book is to enable the student-teachers to teach history in a way that pupils will find interesting, enjoyable and purposeful. It incorporates a wide range of ideas about the teaching of history with practical suggestions for classroom practice, and ideas for further investigations of particular aspects of teaching and learning in history. The book also covers questions such as how to provide for differential learning and how to utilise the potential of new technology in the history classroom.
This book has established itself as the textbook for student-teachers of history. The new edition has an updated chapter on ICT and reflects the recent changes in emphasis in the history curriculum including citizenship, and social, cultural and ethnic diversity. The induction of newly qualified teachers are addressed as are recent concerns about teachers' subject knowledge.

'An excellent companion to Learning to Teach in Secondary School ... full of good ideas and better advice ... Mentors will certainly want to use it, and so, I'm sure, will the rest of the history department ... Make sure they buy one, and keep your copy under lock and key.' - Michael Duffy, Times Educational Supplement
'A very well written and readable book. Overall, this is an excellent book and one which students and teachers outwith England would find a valuable addition to their library.' - Scottish Association of Teachers of History. Resources Review
